A former federal judge says it's highly unlikely that a casino developer who admitted offering millions in bribes will come out a winner in his attempt to avoid a prison sentence.

Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley is seeking home detention and supervised probation when he's sentenced Monday in
Montgomery. Federal prosecutors are recommending nearly 11 years in prison.

Former U.S. Magistrate Judge John Carrroll says it's likely Gilley will get a significant sentence because of the amount of bribes involved in the case. Carroll is now a law school dean in Birmingham.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson is scheduled to sentence Gilley, his lobbyist Jarrod Massey, and former state Rep. Terry Spicer, who admitted taking bribes from Gilley and Massey.
