Mobile Co D-A to head Ala anti-gambling task force
Montgomery, AL – - The new commander of Gov. Bob Riley's
antigambling task force says an Alabama casino owner may have been
obstructing justice when he hired a detective to trail the last
task force head.
Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson Jr. was picked by the
governor Monday to head the Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
Tyson questioned whether Victoryland casino owner Milton
McGregor crossed a legal line when he hired a detective to follow
former task force leader David Barber to an Indian casino in
Mississippi, where Barber won $2,300.
McGregor said Monday citizens have a right to monitor activities
going on around them.
