Ala. gambling trial jury on day 7 of deliberations

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The jury in Alabama's gambling corruption trial is in its seventh day of deliberations in Montgomery.
The jury returned Thursday morning after deliberating all day Wednesday without sending a note or question to the judge.
A defense attorney for VictoryLand casino owner Milton McGregor, Joe Espy, says that's a good sign. But a defense attorney for Country Crossing casino spokesman Jay Walker, Susan Parker, said she doesn't expect the jury to change from its position Tuesday, when it said it was deadlocked on some counts.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson has not said how long he will let the jury deliberate the indictment against the nine defendants in hopes of a complete verdict. The indictment accuses the defendants of buying and selling votes for pro-gambling legislation.
