Henry Mathis files appeal

October 7, 2005

Albany -- A former Albany city commissioner sentenced to federal prison appeals his extortion conviction.

One month ago, a federal jury found Henry Mathis guilty of extorting money from business owners and lying to investigators. He was sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay back more than $3,300 he extorted.

He will have to start serving his time as the 11th District Court of Appeals considers his case, but authorities haven't where or exactly when he'll report to prison.
