MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WHNT) – Former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy is still fighting overturn his conviction in a government corruption case after more than six years.

Scrushy was convicted of bribery and conspiracy in 2006, in a trial also involving former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

Witnesses in the trial testified that Siegelman and Scrushy struck a deal for Scrushy to be appointed to the state Health Board in exchange for a $500,000 campaign contribution.

Scrushy has been living in a halfway-house in Texas since his release from prison.
