LAS VEGAS (AP) - A software designer who alleged Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons took bribes from a Reno-based defense contractor is accused of failing to repay $1 million in casino debts to a Las Vegas Strip casino.
Court records show Dennis Montgomery is due in a Las Vegas court Aug. 17 on a criminal complaint filed June 17 alleging he failed to repay Caesars Palace for nine checks written in various amounts between $10,000 and $250,000 last September.
Defense lawyer David Chesnoff said Thursday that Montgomery will plead not guilty and fight the charges.
Montgomery alleged in 2006 that Gibbons improperly took money as a congressman from Montgomery's former business partner, software company eTreppid owner Warren Trepp.
A federal investigation later cleared Gibbons of wrongdoing.
