More than two years after he was convicted on corruption related charges, former Hartford Mayor Eddie Perez will have his appeal heard in court next month.
A spokeswoman for the judicial branch says that the appeal as been scheduled before a three-judge panel on February 19.
Perez was convicted in 2010 on multiple corruption-related offenses and sentenced to three years. Since then, he has been out of prison pending his appeal. His attorneys plan to argue that the two cases against him should not have been tried together. They have called for an acquittal on all charges. Alternatively, they have asked for two new trials.
