AKRON, Ohio (WJW) — A US District Court judge has moved to vacate two counts against former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora.

On March 9, 2012, following a 37-day jury trial, Dimora, then 56, was convicted of 32 counts of numerous federal crimes, including extortion, bribery, money and property mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud, racketeering, obstruction, falsifying documents, and tax evasion, as well as conspiracy to commit many of these crimes.

Dimora later moved to vacate his convictions, maintaining that the conduct for which he was convicted no longer qualified as “officials acts” under the law.

Judge Sara Lioi vacated Dimora’s convictions on extortion and conspiracy to commit extortion, also known as Hobbs Act extortion, which are counts 12–13.

Dimora is currently serving his 28-year sentence at Devens Federal Medical Center in Massachusetts with a release date set for Feb. 11, 2036.

A resentencing hearing is rescheduled for June 8 at 10 a.m.
