A federal jury in Alabama's gambling corruption trial has acquitted casino owner Milton McGregor and
five other defendants on all counts.
The jury returned its verdict Wednesday in Montgomery after seven days of deliberations.
McGregor was accused of offering large campaign contributions to legislators for their votes for gambling legislation.
State Sen. Harri Anne Smith and former Sens. Larry Means and Jim Preuitt were accused of agreeing to accept bribes in return for their votes.
The jury found McGregor and the others innocent of counts including conspiracy and bribery.
