Man pleads guilty to testify against sheriff

August 25, 2003

Albany - The man at the center of a federal case involving a suspended south Georgia sheriff pleads guilty, but not before some confusion in court.

On Monday, 36-year-old Tommy Williams, Junior pleaded guilty to driving to his ex-wife's Florida home and violating a protection order. He also pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice and Commit Perjury for working with suspended Baker County Sheriff Isaac Anderson to make up an incident report to give Williams a false alibi.

When the judge explained the charges, Williams said he was innocent of the intent of violating his protection order. After discussing this with his attorney, he pleaded guilty anyway.

Four other Williams family members already pleaded guilty to conspiracy and perjury charges and agreed to testify against Anderson.
