February 27, 2012 - 1:27pm

The jury in Alabama's gambling corruption trial in Montgomery will begin deliberations Wednesday.  U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson laid out a schedule Monday that calls for attorneys' closing arguments to take all day Tuesday and two hours Wednesday morning. Then he will instruct jurors and they will begin deliberations.  Casino owner Milton McGregor and five others are on trial on charges accusing them of buying and selling votes on pro-gambling legislation. The prosecution presented its last witness Friday. Defense attorneys chose not to offer any witnesses.
