On Thursday, March 14, 2013, former Bainbridge Probation and Substance Abuse Center Director of Nurses ALISHIA NICOLE WILLIAMS was arrested for theft and violations of the Racketeering Influence and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO).

WILLIAMS, 42, of 313 Grove Pointe Drive, Thomasville, Georgia was arrested for theft and violations of the Racketeering Influence and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) as the result of a yearlong investigation by the Thomasville office of the GBI and the Attorney General's office.  WILLIAMS, accompanied by her attorney, was allowed to turn herself in at the Richmond County Jail in August, Georgia.  

The investigation by GBI agents revealed that over the course of a year in 2009, WILLIAMS fraudulently claimed over $20,000 of state of Georgia funds in overtime payments at the Bainbridge Probation and Substance Abuse Treatment Center in Bainbridge Georgia while employed as the Director of Nurses. 

WILLIAMS fraudulently submitted the time sheets claiming the overtime to state payroll officials in Augusta, resulting in the indictment by a Richmond County Grand Jury.

The investigation into this matter by the GBI's Regional Office in Thomasville continues.
