SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Attorney Barbara Willis is out of jail on bond after her indictment on charges she stole from the estates of deceased people.

Willis was indicted in November on two counts of theft by taking.

She was arrested, booked and released on $7,500 bond.

The charges stem from Willis' handling of the estates of Charlie and I. P. Porter and Charlie Richey, Sr.

Willis graduated from Mercer University Law School, and was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 1991.

She is still practicing law.
