HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – The former mayor of Hartford who was convicted on public corruption charges in June is asking the city to pay him what could amount to tens of thousands of dollars in unused vacation and sick time.

A lawyer for ex-Mayor Eddie Perez said in a letter to the city’s director of human resources that Perez is eligible for 1,216 hours of vacation time and 768 hours of sick time.

The time he actually used needs to be subtracted from that total. But Perez’s lawyer said given the nature of the mayor’s duties, Perez likely took very little of that time.

If Perez took no vacation or sick time, he would be owed more than $132,000.

A city lawyer tells The Hartford Courant the case will probably go to arbitration.

    Is this some kind of sick joke?

    What about all the time he took off to go to court?
    Who paid for his lwayers?
    Why is he not in jail?
