ALABAMA BINGO TRIAL
In October 2010, 11 people - including four state senators, were indicted by the federal government on charges of bribery and conspiracy surrounding Alabama electronic bingo legislation. The charges came after federal investigators collected evidence suggesting attempts by casino owners and lobbyists to influence legislators.
Since the indictments, two of the 11 have entered guilty pleas. Trial for the remaining nine defendants began June 6 at the federal courthouse in Montgomery.
