(CNN) - Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and ex-HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy were both sentenced to more than six years in prison for their roles in a corruption case dating from Siegelman's term in office. U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller sentenced Siegelman to seven years and four months in federal prison and fined him $50,000.
A jury in Montgomery convicted him last June of charges including bribery, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and four counts of mail fraud and obstruction of justice, but acquitted him of numerous other counts, including racketeering and extortion.
Scrushy - who was acquitted in a massive corporate fraud case involving HealthSouth in 2005 - was sentenced to six years and 10 months in prison and fined $150,000. He was convicted of bribery, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and four counts of mail fraud.
