Man pleads to ID theft

February 23, 2004

Albany-- Shaun Williams has plead guilty to stealing the identities of two South Georgia judges, and using credit cards in their name to steal thousands of dollars.

The 21-year-old Williams plead guilty to four counts of financial identity fraud Monday morning.

 Williams is the second man to plead guilty to opening credit card accounts in the name of Mitchell County probate judge Susan Taylor and Early County probate judge Tonya Holley. They bought a Cadillac and thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and clothes.

Williams agreed to testify against a third man charged with those identity thefts, Willie Minter. His trial is scheduled for May. Judge Loring Gray will sentence Williams after he testifies in that case.

Williams could face 12 years in prison.
