BETH GROSSMAN CANDIDATE FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY STATEMENT REGARDING SETH WILLIAMS

“Today is a sad and embarrassing day for Philadelphia. Too often we have seen our elected officials charged with corruption, and too often we watch this become the norm. Seth’s guilty plea proves that the law applies to everyone. The citizens of Philadelphia are tired of being exploited and the last thing we need is another politician that is bought and paid for. We need a true and committed public servant. I am that person. I want to restore the public’s trust in the District Attorney’ Office and allow it to do the job it is supposed to do without distraction.”

BETH GROSSMAN CANDIDATE FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY STATEMENT ON RECENT VIOLENCE

“One Councilman stabbed, two adults and three kids killed. What is at risk for our city goes beyond party politics. We need a District Attorney with actual prosecutorial experience. Philadelphia’s safety should not be put at risk through a politicized social experiment. We need a District Attorney who will hold criminals accountable for their actions. Crime does not care what political party you are, it affects us all. The repercussions of this election are real. It’s time to bring this issue to the forefront.”

The District Attorney’s Office is responsible for enforcing Pennsylvania’s criminal laws fairly, justly and ethically. The District Attorney’s Office also must champion the rights of victims and survivors of crimes – many who bravely testify in court about horrific and traumatic things that a criminal defendant or defendants have inflicted on them. This is neither the experience nor the belief of Mr. Krasner, whose law firm website advertises about defending rapists and child sex offenders. Where his website states,

“Many of those cases have resulted in complete acquittals, probationary sentences with no sex offender registration, or eventual dismissal due to the defendant’s limited mental capacity or for other reasons.”

Mr. Krasner has no experience advocating for victims of crime. Everyone is entitled to the most effective criminal defense possible – that is our system. But when a District Attorney candidate has spent his 30-year career convincing juries that his clients are being victimized by the actual victim, you must ask yourself, “Is this who I want as our District Attorney?” This answer is simple: No.
