Gilley asks for prison delay

Posted: Updated:

    Casino developer Ronnie Gilley is asking a federal judge to delay the date he must report to prison.  He says it's so he can deal with medical and financial issues.

    Gilley was sentenced to more than six and a half years in prison after he pleaded guilty to money laundering for his role in the gambling corruption case.

    His attorney says a recently discovered medical condition calls for surgery and recuperation time.  He says it could easily extend beyond Gilley's reporting date- which is on the 27th of this month.
