Ronnie Gilley wants sentence reduced
Former Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley is asking a federal judge to reduce his federal prison sentence. In his request, Gilley claims that his attorney provided ineffective representation. Gilley's motion calls for his sentence to be vacated because his attorney misled him on the range of sentencing, and also failed to call one of the FBI's lead investigators as a witness in the case.
Gilley was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison a year and a half ago. He pled guilty to multiple counts of bribery and money laundering in connection with an investigation into bribery stemming from proposed gambling legislation.
