MONTGOMERY - AL -

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.
