A defendant in two of the most infamous Southern trials of the twenty-first century, Richard M. Scrushy has twice found himself in the crosshairs of the Department of Justice. In both cases, he proclaims his innocence. Now, in It Should Not Happen in America, Scrushy speaks out for the first time and sets the record straight.

The year is 2004. Richard M. Scrushy is one of the South’s wealthiest men and his company, HealthSouth, is among America’s most profitable health care corporations. That is, until the carelessness and corruption of others drag him into federal prison. It Should Not Happen in America details the events surrounding Scrushy’s legal battles at the turn of the century in his own words and contains never-before-shared insights into the inner life of modern Alabama’s most vilified public figure. For the first time, Scrushy bears witness to the faith and character that guided the former HealthSouth CEO from a prison cell to achieving Wall Street success all over again. This story isn’t as seen on TV, and the events featured in It Should Not Happen in America must be read to be believed.
