Court upholds most of the counts of convicted former Alabama governor, HealthSouth founder
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld most of the bribery and corruption charges against former Gov. Don Siegelman and all the charges against HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy. A three-judge panel in Atlanta tossed out two fraud counts against Siegelman and ordered him resentenced—setting up a new battle between defense lawyers and prosecutors. The ruling was a major setback to Scrushy and Siegelman, who had argued their 2006 trial was riddled with errors.
