    People Please! Eric Williams is a human being first and foremost. I have know him professionally for about 10 years and have NEVER known him to do anything untoward as far as the law is concerned. Considering ALL the mitigating circumstances in his life at this time, why are we so quick to judge. Maybe he did do something wrong, but he is not a bad person. We allowed our District Attorney to drive around drunk on several occasions and the only way we got rid of him was to vote him out. So before you judge anyone, you better look long and hard in the mirrow and check your family and friends before you go passing judgement on someone's character and destroying their reputation. You know they say, there but for the grace of god go I.

    I am confused as to why Jones and Burt would testify that probation is a suitable punishment when this man threatened to kill people? Perhaps they are still afriad that he may carry out his threat to kill and burn down the house. Strange.

    I was a member of the jury that decided his fate last month. Williams asked to have the court decide his sentence and not the jury. Be sure to get your facts straight next time.
