HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Former Hartford Mayor Eddie Perez is heading back to court for an appeal hearing.

Perez was found guilty on corruption charges in 2010 but has not served prison time because he has been appealing.

The democrat argued his bribery and extortion cases should not have been part of the same trial, and one court agreed, but now prosecutors are appealing that.

A hearing is set for Oct. 13.
