Scrushy Denied Early Release

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A federal appeals court has denied former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy's request that he be released from prison on bond.

The appeals court turned down Scrushy's request late Tuesday.

Scrushy has served almost three years of a more than six year term for bribery and other charges. He was convicted along with former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman in 2006 in a government corruption case. The court had denied an earlier request from Scrushy that he be released from prison, saying he was a flight risk.

Scrushy had renewed the request in July, saying he is broke and does not have the means to flee.
