WORCESTER (WBZ-AM) -- Worcester District Attorney Joe Early says his office did nothing wrong in the wake of a scandal involving the daughter of a judge--while his opponent is calling for Early to step down.

Attorney Blake Rubin, who is running for Worcester DA against incumbent Early, said a report issued last week in the case of Alli Bibaud--daughter of Judge Timothy Bibaud--indicates Early pressured then-State Police Col. Richard McKeon to change Bibaud's DUI arrest report in October 2017.

"What we did was lawfully proper under the guidelines," Early told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. "That's what we did. We didn't ask anyone to change anything, we followed our rules of professional conduct."

Col. McKeon resigned his post last November, and Lt. Col. Francis Hughes retired in the wake of the investigation.
