Perez Sentenced To Three Years In Prison, Three Years Probation

Eddie Perez Walks To Court with Friends and Family (Chion Wolf/WNPR)

A state court judge sentenced former Hartford Mayor Eddie Perez to three years in prison for a conviction on corruption-related charges.  But as WNPR’s Jeff Cohen reports, he is not expected to begin his sentence until a higher court hears his appeal.

Here’s our story.  I’m working on another story that will include more testimony from inside the courtroom and reaction from outside. Stay tuned.

One thing worth noting — Perez apparently has found work.  His attorney says he’s working here as a consultant.
