BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Former HealthSouth chief executive Richard Scrushy is out of a federal prison in Texas and is now living into a halfway house for prisoners.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons says Scrushy is now being held at a community corrections center in Houston. A prison website says the one-time executive is set for release on July 25.
The Birmingham News first reported Scrushy's transfer.
Scrushy is imprisoned after being convicted with former Gov. Don Siegelman in a state bribery scheme in 2006. While Siegelman is free on bond while appealing his conviction, courts refused to free Scrushy.
Scrushy still has an appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court. Many of his assets were seized through a lawsuit by HealthSouth shareholders, and his wife and young children now live near him in Texas.
