Georgia Coca-Cola trial set to begin soon

January 14, 2007

Atlanta--Jury selection is set to begin Tuesday in the Coca-Cola trade secrets trial.

Prosecutors say a former Coca-Cola secretary, Joya Williams, took confidential documents from the beverage giant with the intent of selling them to rival Pepsi.

Her lawyer says she was duped by two ex-cons and didn't commit a crime.

A jury will be asked to determine who is telling the truth.

Williams faces up to ten years in prison if convicted of conspiracy.
