MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld most of the bribery and corruption charges against former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and all the charges against former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy.
A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in
Atlanta struck down two of the seven charges that Siegelman was
convicted of and ordered a new sentencing hearing.
But it upheld key bribery, conspiracy and obstruction counts against him.
The court upheld all six counts against Scrushy in a bribery
scheme with Siegelman when he was governor.
Siegelman was sentenced to more than seven years when convicted. Scrushy is serving almost seven years.
