Siegelman Returns

Former Gov. Don Siegelman Wednesday returned home to Alabama, hours after his release from prison.    Siegelman was freed from a federal lockup in Oakdale, La. where he had been serving a more than 6 year sentence for a bribery scheme.    A spokesman, Chip Hill, said he would finish the remaining months under house arrest.    Siegelman waved to supporters as he arrived at the Birmingham airport, but did not make a statement.   Later, the Democrat repeated the gesture, waving to another group of loyalists who gathered at a pre-arranged spot on 20th Street, as Siegelman and his family passed in a late-model Jaguar.   Siegelman ended the day by returning to his Vestavia home.  He was scheduled to meet with a probation officer on Thursday, Hill said.
