Alert Juror Catches Error In Ala. Gambling Trial

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — At least one juror in Alabama's gambling corruption trial is paying close enough attention to catch a mistake by the prosecution.
The prosecution gave the jury a transcript Monday of a phone call that state Rep. Barry Mask made to indicted casino owner Milton McGregor at the request of the FBI. The transcript said the call was made Feb. 15, 2009. An alert juror sent the judge a note saying the date didn't match other evidence.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson told the jury that the date should have been Feb. 15, 2010. The judge said the juror caught an error that neither the prosecution nor defense noticed.
