SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - 22News has been informed by Hampden County District Attorney Mark Mastroianni that he plans to apply for a position as a Federal Judge in Springfield.
Mastoianni says this is no reflection on his current job as DA. He says he loves that job and thinks they're doing great work but also says being a Federal Judge is a "once in a lifetime opportunity that he couldn't pass up."
It's unclear how this will impact his current term as DA; the process to select judge can be a lengthy one.
