CENTER CITY (WPVI) --Action News has learned that the attorney for embattled District Attorney Seth Williams has filed a motion to withdraw from the case.
But a judge denied that motion, keeping Michael Diamondstein on the job.
Diamondstein maintained Williams cannot afford his services, and said since Williams is not stepping down, it would be a conflict of interest to represent a sitting DA.
Williams is facing charges of bribery and extortion.
He has pleaded not guilty.
