Former Gov. Don Siegelman's Son Speaks Out
From Montgomery -- Former Governor Don Siegelman's family isn't giving up the fight for his release from federal prison. For the first time since his father reported back to prison in September, his son Joseph Siegelman is speaking exclusively to Alabama News Network.
"I'm 24-years-old. From when the investigation started, this has been going on my entire life," says Joseph Siegelman. "When he was released on appeal in 2008, we never thought he would go back."
Joseph Siegelman says as he watched his dad walk into prison, one thought crossed his mind.
Joseph Siegelman says his sister has started an online petition and is also passing out a paper petition. He says they've collected more than 50,000 signatures.

Dana Siegelman, Don Siegelman's daughter, is also planning a march in Selma on March 3. She is asking for people to come out and help fight for her father's freedom.
Former HealthSouth C.E.O. Richard Scrushy, who was convicted along with Don Siegelman in 2006, got out of prison in July, but still faces three years of supervised release.
