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.

    I think the whole trial is crazy, Does anyone think about the jobs, and income that would be brought into, the decling economy? And if it's about bingo or gambling, people will do that anyway, either taking their money out of town or having underground games. We learn NOTHING from History.
