Former Alabama governor to be resentenced in August

Former Governor Don Siegelman will be back in federal court in Montgomery August{}3rd for resentencing on his bribery conviction.

Siegelman{}was found guilty in 2006 of accepting bribes from former HealthSouth{}CEO Richard Scrushy in exchange for a place on a state hospital board. He only{}served nine months of a seven year sentence before being released on bond.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal.
