Corruption Case Nears the End

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – The attorneys for former HealthSouth C-E-O Richard Scrushy will argue before a federal jury Thursday that their client did not arrange for 500-thousand dollars in contributions to former Governor Don Siegelman's lottery campaign in exchange for an appointment to a hospital regulatory board. Jurors heard closing arguments Wednesday from attorneys for Siegelman, his former chief of staff Paul Hamrick and former state transportation director Mack Roberts. But the court was adjourned before Scrushy's attorneys got to present their arguments.
