Livesay gets five-year probation sentence for third time for HealthSouth crime

Birmingham News, July 17, 2008

Former HealthSouth Corp. executive Ken Livesay was sentenced to five years' probation for a third time for his role in a billion-dollar accounting fraud at the company. U.S. District Judge Karon Bowdre noted Livesay's "invaluable" cooperation, his lack of a criminal history, and his decision to stop participating in the fraud before it was uncovered among reasons for the sentence. Livesay testified for four days at the trial of former HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy, who was acquitted of all charges in the fraud, and Hannibal "Sonny" Crumpler, a former vice president and division controller, who is serving an eight-year term.
