Coming Up: Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams at Penn! November 3rd, 2013
Tuesday, November 12th @ 7PM, Huntsman Hall F85
Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams will be coming to Penn on November 12!
Seth Williams serves as the current District Attorney for the City of Philadelphia, the first African American to ever serve in that role. After 10 years as an Assistant District Attorney, Williams was elected District Attorney with 75% of the vote. Previously, Williams has served as the city’s Inspector General and Assistant Chief of the Municipal Court.
During his time as District Attorney, Williams has prosecuted several high profile cases, including the Kermit Gosnell abortion clinic trial. In 2011, Williams became “the first U.S. prosecutor to charge a church official for endangering children whom the Roman Catholic Church was supposed to protect by shuffling pedophile priests to different parishes where they could find fresh prey”, as one commentator put it, in the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic archdiocese of Philadelphia.
This is is a talk you won’t want to miss!
