District Attorney Seth Williams and wife Sonita have “Decided to end our marriage,” the couple confirmed in a joint statement this afternoon.

The decision was made “After long and careful consideration,” and the couple will “Remain close friends and loving co-parents to our beautiful daughters,” said the couple who have 24, 12, and 8-year-old daughters.

“We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. We ask respect for our family's privacy at this time,” said the statement.

Sources tell us that the DA and Sonita, a social worker have been effectively-separated for about a year, but remained living together until recently.
