Former Houston County Commissioner Bobby Snellgrove was arrested Tuesday on two felony warrants. Houston County Sheriff Andy R. Hughes confirmed Snellgrove was booked into the county jail on two charges of using his office for personal gain.

A statement from the office of Attorney General Luther Strange said Snellgrove was indicted by a special grand jury of two felony counts.

Count One charges former Commissioner Snellgrove with intentionally using his office to obtain $214,122.00 in illegal personal gain for himself, a family member or Regional Services, LLC, doing business as Regional Security, from Ronnie  Gilley and his Country Crossings gambling businesses.

Count Two charges former Commissioner Snellgrove with intentionally using his office to obtain $6,087.20 in illegal personal gain for himself, a family member or Regional Septic Services, LLC or Regional Portables, LLC, from Ronnie D. Gilley and his Country Crossings gambling businesses.

Snellgrove lost his re-election bid in 2010. He and other county commissioners, both current and former, were recently subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury investigating circumstances related to Country Crossing, a casino that opened briefly in 2009 and early 2010 before being forced to close by the state.

If convicted, Snellgrove faces a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $30,000 for each violation.
