MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Prosecutors have rested their case against a Macon County casino owner and eight others in a gambling corruption trial.
Prosecutor Steve Feaga told U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson "the United States rests" at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday - eight weeks and two days after the start of the trial in federal court.
Thompson immediately sent jurors home for the day and said he would spend much of Wednesday hearing arguments from defense attorneys seeking to have charges dismissed against their clients.
Defendants are expected to begin presenting their cases by Thursday.
The defendants are accused of buying and selling votes on a bill before the Legislature in 2010 to legalize electronic bingo.
The prosecution rested after two days of testimony concerning records of phone calls.
