Judge sentences family, man in false alibi scheme

January 9, 2004

 (Albany-AP) -- A federal judge has sentenced a man wanted on felony charges in Florida and four of his family members who provided a false alibi to protect him.

Tommy Leon Williams Junior must serve 33 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release. He pleaded guilty in August to federal charges of interstate violation of a protection order and conspiracy to obstruct justice and commit perjury. He still faces domestic abuse charges in Florida.

Williams' parents and two cousins pleaded guilty in August to federal charges in connection with the false alibi scheme. They were each sentenced to several years of probation.

The admitted architect of the scheme, Tommy Leon Williams Senior, also was sentenced to 60 days of house arrest.

The group implicated Baker County Sheriff Isaac Anderson in their plot, saying that he provided them a false truck accident report to cement their story. But a jury acquitted Anderson of taking a bribe to file a phony report.
