HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The Latest on high-level staff changes at the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office (all times local):


2:30 p.m.

Pennsylvania’s new attorney general says his predecessor’s former second-in-command will leave the job after this week.

Attorney General Bruce Beemer says Friday will be the last day as solicitor general for Kathleen Kane’s onetime No. 2, Bruce Castor.

Kane created the position of solicitor general in March and filled it with Castor, a former district attorney and elected Republican commissioner in Montgomery County.

He’s also a central figure in the Bill Cosby case, having chosen a decade ago not to charge the entertainer with sex assault.

Kane, a Democrat, resigned in August following her conviction on charges that include perjury.

Castor says he’s looking forward to resuming his retirement from government service and calls his time with the agency “quite an experience, to say the least.”

Beemer on Tuesday also named Robert Mulle as first deputy attorney general and appointed James Donahue III as acting chief of staff.
