Former AL Gov. Don Siegelman and Richard Scrushy's appeal nears
Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy will ask three federal judges to overturn their bribery convictions, arguing their 2006 trial was riddled with errors. Defense lawyers for Siegelman and Scrushy have argued there were multiple mistakes at the 2006 trial that merit a new trial or the case being tossed completely. Prosecutors accused Scrushy of bribing Siegelman for an appointment to a state health board with $500,000 in contributions to Siegelman's signature political issue, the 1999 referendum to establish a state lottery.
