Williams was convicted of six counts of Trafficking Between 14 and 28 Grams of Opium, one count of Attempted Trafficking Between 14 and 28 Grams of Opium, and three counts of Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Forgery. Williams was sentenced to a minimum of 70 months in prison, with a maximum of 84 months in prison. Williams was already on probation for previous drug and theft offenses, and his probation was immediately revoked. The presiding judge ordered him to serve all of his sentences in prison
