SCRANTON, Pa. -- Wayne Evans was sworn in Thursday afternoon at city council chambers.

Evans, who had been a council member, was appointed unanimously Wednesday by the four other members of the council.

He fills the seat left vacant by Bill Courtright who pleaded guilty to corruption charges earlier this month.

Evans will serve as Interim Mayor of Scranton for about five months until a special election in November.
