PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams has put his house up for sale as he awaits trial on federal bribery charges that he illegally accepted gifts - including the $45,000 roof on the house in question.

Philly.com (https://bit.ly/2oxBjjE ) reports Thursday that Williams‘ wants $450,000 for the four-bedroom house.

Williams‘ law license was suspended by the state Supreme Court earlier this month, and the city’s Ethics Board fined his political action fund another $2,000 for allegedly failing to report nearly $12,000 in spending on last year’s campaign finance report.

The board previously fined him $62,000 for accepting $175,000 worth of gifts that are at the center of a 23-count federal bribery and extortion indictment returned last month.

Williams, a two-term Democrat, remains in office but isn’t acting as an attorney in any case involving his office.
