Perez was convicted in 2010 on extortion and bribery charges. He was sentenced to three years in prison but remained free pending appeal.
In July, the state’s highest court upheld a lower court ruling that state prosecutors improperly combined two cases against Perez into a single trial.
The Hartford Courant reports Perez is due in a courtroom on Wednesday to have the convictions officially vacated. But prosecutors say they intend to push forward with a new trial.
Perez, a Democrat who was mayor from 2001 to 2010, was found guilty of accepting a contractor’s bribe of home improvements and trying to extort $100,000 from a developer.
