PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless is expected to take an oath of office to start his second full term.
Capeless is scheduled to be sworn in during a public ceremony at the Berkshire Superior Court this afternoon.
He is a native of Pittsfield and the son of former Mayor Robert Capeless.
In March 2004, the career prosecutor was appointed by then Gov. Mitt Romney to succeed former District Attorney Gerard Downing, who died unexpectedly. Capeless was elected to his first, four-year term in 2006.
He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Boston College Law School.
