Republicans endorse Sedita for re-election

District Attorney Frank Sedita III received some positive political news this weekend with the endorsement of the Erie County Republican Party.

The development puts the long-time Democrat on the top lines of the November ballot and almost guarantees his re-election to a second term as D.A.

Sedita's office suffered a high-profile setback last week when James Corasanti was found not guilty on felony charges related to the vehicular death of 18-year-old Alix Rice.

In an emotional post-trial press conference, Sedita apologized to Rice's family for the verdict.
