Rev. Cornell Lewis (right) touches Hartford Mayor Eddie Perez on the shoulder in a show of support during a press conference at City Hall. The press conference came shortly after Perez had turned himself in on charges of one count of criminal attempt to commit larceny in the first degree by extortion and one count of conspiracy to commit larceny in the first degree by extortion. Perez will fight the charges.
