    Philadelphia's new District Attorney Seth Williams
    Hour 1
    On Nov. 3, SETH WILLIAMS was elected as the city of Philadelphia’s District Attorney. He’s a former assistant D.A. who rose up from being abandoned as an infant in an orphanage to winning election as the city’s first African American D.A. He has big plans when he takes office to transform a prosecutors office that has been led by Lynne Abraham for 19 years, including shifting to geographic-based teams of prosecutors and strengthening the Gun Violence Task Force. Seth Williams joins Marty on today’s Radio Times to talk about his plans for an office of 300 assistant prosecutors and 250 support personnel.
