Siegelman: Still Guilty

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld five of the seven counts on which former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman had been found guilty, WSFA reports

The court upheld the Bribery, Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice and two of the four Mail Fraud counts against him. You may remember the jury found Siegelman guilty of a Quid-Pro-Quo in which he promised former Healthsouth CEO Richard Scrushy a seat on a hospital regulatory board for a campaign contribution…His attorney, Vince Kilborn tells WSFA 12 News that Siegelman will remain free until his final appeal is made and he said we’re a long way away from that.
