Ex-Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams Sent to Prison in Oklahoma
Published at 6:05 PM EST on Dec 4, 2017
Philadelphia's former top prosecutor has been moved to a federal prison in Oklahoma to serve his five-year sentence for accepting a bribe.
At his Oct. 24 sentencing, a federal judge said Seth Williams sold his office to "parasites" and ordered Williams jailed immediately.
He's been in a small Philadelphia prison cell ever since.
He pleaded guilty in June to one count of accepting a bribe from a businessman.
On Monday, federal prison records show he was moved to the federal lockup in Oklahoma City.
Williams' release date is set for November 2021.
The two-term Democrat was the city's first black DA.
