(Cleveland, OH) - Former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora is requesting that a federal judge toss out his 2012 public corruption conviction.
The defendant's lawyer argued in a motion filed today that his client's conviction was based on a definition of what is considered an "official act" that has been turned down by the U.S. Supreme Cour when it overturned the corruption conviction of former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.
Dimora is serving his fifth year of a 28-year prison term at a federal facility in Lisbon.
