(UPI) - A former mine union official convicted of financing the .1969 Yablonski murders has requested a retrial on grounds the presiding judge blocked testimony which would have indicated a prosecution witness was offered money and a lighter sentence to testify. In a 20-page brief filed Friday, attorney Harold Gondelman contended 38 reversible errors were committed by the judge in the trial of Albert Pass, a former high-ranking United Mine Workers official convicted of first degree murder last Tuesday. Pass, 53, Middlesboro, Ky., faces life imprisonment for the shooting deaths of UMW insurgent Joseph A. "Jock" Yablonski, his wife and daughter. Gondelman said Judge Ed­ ward H. Carney erred in not offered a second degree murder demanding the appearance of convicted murderer Paul Gilly after special prosecutor Richard Sprague promised in opening remarks to the jury that he would call Gilly. The defense attorney contended Gilly would have testified to plea - bargaining offers the prosecutor allegedly made to him and other defendants in the case. A Washington County judge also was involved in bargaining, the appeal said. Gondelman's defense case was based on alleged sentencing deals by the defense, which he said placed the witnesses' credibility in question. Although seven persons have either confessed or been convicted, none has been sentenced in the 3%-year-old case. The appeal claimed Gilly would have testified he was sentence and that confessed Yablonski triggerman Claude Vcalcy told him the prosecution offered Vcalcy $10,000 to $20,000 and a second degree sentence. Vealey testified at all four trials in the case. Gondelman said, he conferred in prison with Gilly at the prisoner's request. "Gilly stated that Judge (Charles) Sweet and special prosecutor Sprague made a deal with Annette Gilly and Silous Huddleston that they would get complete freedom when the case was over," the appeal read. Mrs. Gilly and Huddleston, Gilly's wife and father-in-law, both confessed to complicity in the case and named other suspects.
