Another Witness Down in Scrushy Trial

The defense completed their cross-examination of witness Smith, a former finance administrator at HealthSouth, by placing his credibility at issue.  And the question being raised continues - did Scrushy know of fraud going on in the company or did he not?  And to what extent, if any, was he involved?  And can the witnesses who are testifying be trusted? 

Smith appears to have received the benefit in a lighter sentence by agreeing to testify against Scrushy.  See more in the Wall Street Journal here.
