by KYW's Tony Hanson and Mike Dunn
The start of 2010 is ushering in big change in the office of Philadelphia district attorney, as Seth Williams is sworn in as the city's top prosecutor.
For the first time in nearly two decades, Philadelphia has a new district attorney.
"I, Rufus Seth Williams, do solemnly swear..."
It was an historic moment for Philadelphia: the swearing-in of the city's first African-American district attorney, indeed the first African-American prosecutor in the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Judge Frederica Massiah Jackson administered the oath of office to Williams, 43, who succeeds Lynne Abraham after her 18 years in office.
