MONTGOMERY — On Monday Prosecutors filed their recommendations for Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley and others.
In their recommendation to District Judge Myron Thompson Federal prosecutors suggested that Gilley spend nearly 11 years in prison for offering millions of dollars in his pay- for-vote scheme.
Federal prosecutors also recommended that lobbyist, Jarrod Massey, spend slightly more than 11 years behind bars for his role in the affair.
Former Rep. Terry Spicer, (D-Elba) received recommendation of four years and nine months to five years and 11 months.
The Federal prosecutors sighted, “pleading guilty and helping provide evidence against others,” as the reason Gilley and Massey should receive lesser sentences than the Federal guidelines.
Judge Thompson, has scheduled sentencing of the trio on July 16.
