MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Several defendants in the Alabama gambling corruption case are asking to have the charges against them thrown out.
The federal judge handling the case set Friday as the deadline for motions, and many were filed seeking to have some of the charges dismissed against the 10 defendants.
Former VictoryLand casino lobbyist Bob Geddie and former state Sen. Larry Means of Attalla also asked to be tried separately from any other defendants because they said few of the charges in the case involve them.
Former Democratic state Sen. Jim Preuitt of Talladega asked that the trial be delayed because there are thousands of pages of evidence to go through.
Currently, all 10 defendants are scheduled to be tried together starting April 4.
