WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Kenyan McDuffie is set to become the newest member of the D.C. Council.

McDuffie, a Democrat, will be sworn in Wednesday afternoon as the new councilmember for Ward 5.

He won a special election last month to replace Harry Thomas Jr., who is headed to prison for three years after pleading guilty to embezzling more than $350,000 from the city.

McDuffie will serve the remainder of Thomas’ term, which runs through 2014. He’s a former prosecutor who resigned from a position in Mayor Vincent Gray’s administration, which is currently marred by controversy, to run for the council seat.
