Larry Krasner was elected District Attorney of Philadelphia on November 7, 2017 and was sworn in on January 2, 2018.
As one of Philadelphia’s most outspoken and highly regarded progressive attorneys, for 30 years he has been fearlessly demanding fair treatment and justice for Philadelphians of all backgrounds.
Larry will transform a broken District Attorney’s Office into one that focuses on the 6% of offenders who commit 60% of the serious crimes in Philadelphia. He will lead the fight for a fair and effective criminal justice system.
