Former Gov. Robert Riley was the oen who kept electronic bingo machines out of the state of Alabama, and he also was instrumental as he called out the legislation he felt it was corrupt.
After it has been proven correct on his accusations, Robert Riley decided to avoid the fact of testifying in the initial case of gambling corruption against the owner of VictoryLand, Milton McGregor.
The first prosecution attempt came to an end in a mistrial, with the jurors being deadlocked on the charges that were against the owner Milton McGregor. This thing led to a new trial date as well as to a new judge. As there was a new judge, there also came some new orders and also one of the issues resolved a few days ago was Robert Riley testifying.
Initially, Robert Riley was supposed to have to testify last year. Then, it seemed that lawyers of Milton McGregor were playing a sort of game of cat and mouse with Robert Riley, as he was about to take a vacation during the trial.
There are many analysts who have suggested that Milton McGregor tried to disrupt the vacation, as lawyers have never planned to call Robert Riley to the stand.
In addition, Robert Riley may be the one to be called testifying of the way he discussed the gambling legislation that has finally led to the bribery charges against Milton McGregor, Ronnie Gilley as well as senators in the state of Alabama. Even if his testimony may not be considered valuable, Milton McGregor’s lawyer reiterated their desire in order to show that Robert Riley was under the law.
