A Hinds County grand jury indicted Williams in 2011 for house burglary and aggravated assault as he allegedly tried to run over someone with a car. The indictment stated his previous felony convictions:
1. House burglary in 1992.
2. House burglary in 2005
3. Receiving stolen goods in 1997
4. Uttering a forgery in 1992.
5. House burglary in 1997.
6. Forgery in 1994.
7. House burglary in 1990.
8. House burglary in 1990.
9. House burglary in 1990.
10. House burglary in 1993.
He pleaded guilty on March 20, 2013. Judge Tomie Green sentenced him to a prison sentence of ten years for the charge of house burglary but suspended five years of the sentence. She gave him credit for time served and ordered him to serve probation for a term of five years after he was released from prison. The habitual offender status was dropped as part of the plea agreement. The prosecutor dropped (Nolle Prosequi) the charge of aggravated assault.
However, Williams was indicted in July 2010 for a crime he allegedly committed in 2009. A Hinds County grand jury indicted him for three counts of armed robbery. Judge Winston Kidd set bond at $50,000. Attorney Malcolm Harrison represented Williams. Williams pleaded guilty on January 4, 2012. Judge Kidd sentenced him to a prison term of ten years and suspended one year. The prosecution remanded the third count of the indictment.
