PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pennsylvania’s second-largest Common Pleas Court system has a new administrative boss.

Former state attorney general and federal prosecutor Linda Kelly has been appointed to be Allegheny County’s district court administrator.

Kelly spent 30 years in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Pittsburgh including serving as First Assistant and acting U.S. Attorney on two occasions. She then served as state attorney general from 2011 to 2013, finishing the term of Tom Corbett after he was elected governor.

Kelly will earn $140,000 annually.

She was appointed by President Judge Jeffrey Manning.

Kelly replaces Claire Capristo who retired earlier this month. Christopher Connors will continue serving as acting court administrator until Kelly begins work on Feb. 17.
