Siegelman Attorneys File Release Request

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman is looking to get out of prison while he appeals his conviction.

Siegelman's attorneys filed a request for a federal court to release him citing delays in preparing a transcript of his trial and delays in the trial judge providing reasons for denying Siegelman an appeals bond.

Siegelman was convicted on bribery and obstruction of justice charges in 2006.

He's currently serving his sentence at a federal prison in Louisiana.
