Judge wants clarification on bribery

Posted: Updated:

    The judge in Alabama's Gambling trials says he wants some clarification on bribery laws.

    Judge Myron Thompson says there is a great amount of confusion about how Federal corruption laws apply to campaign contributions.

    He says he wants the Supreme Court to provide a precise definition of bribery.

    The two gambling trials involved legislators and lobbyists accused of promising contributions in return for votes on pro-gambling legislation.

    No one was convicted.
