A federal prosecutor is opposed to Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley getting a third delay on when he must report to prison.
Justice Department prosecutor Kendall Day filed court papers Tuesday saying the department opposes another delay for medical reasons. Day said the federal prison system can provide Gilley with the post-operative care he might require.
The state's troubled General Fund is getting nearly $550,000 from a raid on a gambling hall in Lowndes County.
Attorney General Luther Strange's office announced that Circuit Judge Robert Vance approved the forfeiture of the money to state.
Alabama's gambling task force seized the money during a raid on electronic bingo machines at the White Hall Entertainment Center in March 2009. The operators, Cornerstone Community Outreach and Freedom Trail Ventures, recently agreed to forfeit the $549,981. The judge approved it in a one-paragraph order Tuesday.
