DA Seth Williams indicted on corruption, bribery-related charges

Philly.com
Federal authorities accused Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams on Tuesday of accepting travel to the Dominican Republic, a custom sofa worth thousands and other gifts in exchange for offers to fix cases and ease law enforcement troubles for offers to fix cases and ease law enforcement troubles for a friend and business owner... In one February 2012 text message exchange quoted in the filing, Williams allegedly agreed to help a friend of Mohammed N. Ali, a Philadelphia business owner, by offering to see about shortening the prison sentence the man faced as part of a plea deal with the District Attorney’s Office. Within days, Ali offered to send Williams on a $3,000 trip to the Domican Republic resort of Punta Ca na, prosecutors said “I am merely a thankful beggar and don’t want to overstep my bounds,” Williams allegedly wrote in one text message quoted in the indictment. “But we will gladly go.” Williams also helped Ali on several other occasions, federal investigators said. “In the future always give me at least a week to help a friend,” the district attorney allegedly wrote to Ali in August 2012. “I have no problem looking into anything. … I can’t promise I will drastically change anything once it has gotten to the trial stage but I can always look into it.”
