A longtime prosecutor who rose through the ranks of the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office will start a new job Monday to become the deputy administrator for the Allegheny County Courts.

Christopher Connors, District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.'s first assistant and chief of staff since 2005, has been employed by the office since 1988. He previously headed up the district attorney's domestic violence unit.

Connors, 55 of Upper St. Clair, will fill a seat formerly held by Claire Capristo, who was promoted to court administrator after Ray Billotte left the office to take the same position in Maricopa County, Ariz.

Mike Manko, a spokesman for the district attorney's office, declined to comment on who might replace Connors.
