Richard Scrushy Released From Home Confinement


By CBS-8 Reporter

Former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy is a free man, and is no longer on home confinement.

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons confirms to CBS 8 News that Scrushy's sentence ends today. The 59 year old was moved from a federal prison in Texas into a halfway house in the Houston area in April. He was placed on home confinement in May.
Scrushy still faces three years of supervised release by the U.S. Probation Office. He must also perform 500 hours of community service.

Scrushy and former governor Don Siegleman were convicted in 2006 of bribery and fraud.
