Ex-HealthSouth exec should go to prison, court says

Associated Press/The Tennessean, November 17, 2009

A federal appeals court says a former HealthSouth executive should go to prison for his role in an accounting fraud at the rehabilitation chain. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that probation isn't enough punishment for Ken Livesay, who pleaded guilty to inflating earnings at HealthSouth. Federal judges have sentenced Livesay to probation three times for his role in the HealthSouth fraud. Prosecutors appealed each time, claiming the sentences were too lenient.
