Rich Con's and Wife's Heartbreaking Story on Nightline
The couple had to sell their yachts, airport hangar, and other properties, described by ABC as "their life" (some of this swag was bought by aggrieved HealthSouth shareholders) and now Leslie has to drive out to the prison to visit Richard. Thankfully, she doesn't have to take a bus like other inmates' family members do, or rely on heavily surcharged phone calls...
"Sometimes I wonder if the judges realize that they punish the families many times more than they punish the inmate," says Scrushy from prison, where he is working on a Christian album, a number from which he sings for Nightline. He maintains his innocence.
We wonder what HealthSouth shareholders and the workers who got laid off think about that. Well, we're just going to have to rely on the example of Ashley Calles and Amanda Vasquez to call us to Christian charity on this one. Merry Christmas, everybody!
