A former HealthSouth Corp. vice president allegedly involved in a scheme to bribe a Saudi Arabian official received three years' probation and a $500 fine after he previously pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI. The government alleged that Thomas Carman and others arranged for a $1 million payment to a medical director at a Saudi Arabia-based hospital to ensure that HealthSouth won a staffing contract worth $50 million. In June, a judge sentenced former HealthSouth executive Vincent Nico to three years' probation and a $250,000 fine for pleading guilty to wire fraud. A jury in May acquitted two other former HealthSouth executives of involvement in the scheme. -- by Joseph Mantone
