Reno Judge Won't Dismiss "Girls Gone Wild" Trial

RENO, Nev. (AP) - A federal judge says he won't dismiss charges against a former Nevada sheriff's deputy accused of accepting gifts in exchange for giving preferential treatment to the jailed creator of the "Girls Gone Wild" videos.

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks denied a defense motion on
Wednesday to dismiss the charges against former Washoe County jail Sgt. Michon Mills. The bribery trial is expected to continue Thursday and into Friday.

A Hollywood associate of "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis
has pleaded guilty to a related misdemeanor charge and admitted he provided Mills with a $4,500 Cartier watch and a $5,000 Saks Fifth Avenue gift card.

But the associate, Aaron Weinstein, testified that Mills never
considered the gifts a bribe and eventually gave back the unused
gift card and unworn watch.
