Government: Uphold Siegelman, Scrushy Convictions
(2008-08-04)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Prosecutors have asked a federal appeals court to uphold the bribery convictions and federal prison sentences of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy.

The government has filed a 170-page brief with the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. It is a reply to the appeal briefs filed earlier by attorneys for Siegelman and Scrushy.

The prosecutors dispute claims by defense attorneys that the government did not prove a quid pro quo arrangement between Siegelman and Scrushy.

Prosecutors also said in the brief that claims of jurors communicating among themselves by e-mail have been thoroughly investigated and should not be a reason to grant a new trial.
