Joe Early, Jr.: 13 to Watch in Central Mass in 2013

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

 

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early, Jr. had a lot to live up to in light of the career of his father, the late Joseph Early, Sr., who represented Worcester in the state House of Representatives for over a decade before spending nearly two more decades as Congressman for Massachusetts' third district.

However, the younger Early has found success by taking a slightly different path in public life, one that led him to the Worcester County District Attorney's Office in 2006 after having spent time in both the Hampden County District Attorney's office and working for the Commonwealth's Attorney General.

The Worcester native has garnered broad support among Central Mass constituents due in part to his aggressive prosecution of individuals brandishing firearms and the steep sentences he and the local courts have sought in such cases.

If that weren't cause enough to take note of the Worcester County DA, when an attempted robber who tried to steal the DA's wallet at a local pizza place in December, Early took the suspect down himself, pinning him against a wall until a court officer helped him keep the suspect under wraps until police arrived.

Could he be headed up the chain in Mass politics? He definitely seems ready for anything.
