PDAA ISSUES STATEMENT ON RESIGNATION OF SETH WILLIAMS
HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association (PDAA) President and Lebanon County District Attorney David J. Arnold Jr. released the following statement today after the announcement that Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams pled guilty to a corruption charge and has resigned from office:
“It’s a difficult day for Philadelphia, but it is also a day that demonstrates no one is above the law. The criminal justice system clearly works and all Pennsylvanians can remain confident in its integrity.
“The conduct of one person doesn’t diminish the great work of the hardworking men and women in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office or prosecutors in offices throughout the commonwealth. The work they do, along with all in the law enforcement community, is too important to be undermined by a single person or single act.”
