HAMMOND | Longtime region politician Robert Cantrell is seeking to vacate and set aside four of his 11 fraud-related convictions, federal court records show.
A jury found Cantrell guilty in 2008. In 2009, the former North Township supervisor was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison for using his position in public office to steer contracts to a counseling company in exchange for money.
A jury also found him guilty of insurance fraud for "deceptively procuring" township-funded health insurance coverage for two of his children, filing false income tax returns and other offenses.
Cantrell was ordered to repay the $68,000 he took from North Township through contract fraud, court records show.
In a petition filed this week, Cantrell's attorney, Paul Stracci, asked the court to set aside Cantrell's four honest services fraud convictions and to recalculate his sentences for insurance fraud and false tax returns, court records state. Stracci filed a 51-page document Friday in support of the motion.
In it, Stracci argued Cantrell had ineffective assistance at trial in his appeals.
