BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Former Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim is asking the state Appellate Court to restore his law license that he lost following a corruption conviction.
The Connecticut Post reports that Ganim's lawyer filed the appeal on Monday.
A three-judge panel rejected Ganim's request last month to get his license back, saying he failed to show remorse for his crimes. The ex-mayor's lawyer also filed a request Monday with the panel asking it to correct its decision.
Ganim, who was once considered a Democratic contender for governor, was convicted in 2003 on federal corruption and bribery charges and sentenced to nine years in prison, a $150,000 fine and ordered to pay more than $148,000 in restitution.
