Milton McGregor is the owner of Victoryland, a complex located in Macon County, Alabama that comprises a casino, a luxury 5-star hotel and a greyhound racing track. In 2010, McGregor was arrested on charges of conspiracy and fraud. Nevertheless, this was not the last time he was accused of unlawful acts. He has repeatedly been accused of corruption and recently, he was charged with manipulating the rules of bingo for personal profit. District litigant lawyers have finally achieved what federal prosecutors were not able to do: to put McGregor in the spotlight of a civil court.
Standing Trial for Bingo Fraud?
In previous trials, McGregor was never called to be on the stand, and more than that he was always declared innocent. However, this time could be different since he has already been defending himself for two days with no verdict in sight. Furthermore, he was also charged of suspiciously covering certain rules for charity bingo and with conspiring, along with the sheriff of Macon County, against potential competition to his Victoryland business. McGregor has, of course, denied all the charges in his testimony. He even said that he hired two expert lawyers to write the eventual rules, and that his only sin was attempting to be cooperative and supportive.
Closure of Casinos for McGregor’s Victoryland
In addition, McGregor’s Victoryland casino was closed. The electronic bingo machines offered in Victoryland seem to look a lot like slot machines; hence, the legitimacy of that equipment is under discussion. The complainant lawyers in the case have also brought Lucky Palace, a potential rival, as evidence against McGregor. They claim that they were deprived of the right to raise money through bingo.The case might be going little bit slowly; however, significant achievements have been made with regards to McGregor’s illicit activities. Now, it can only be hoped that justice will be served.
