By the fall of 2014, however, Williams had taken a job at Stroker’s Adult Entertainment Club in Clarkston, regularly dancing until 4 a.m., authorities said. Records show she obtained adult entertainment permits from the county each year through 2018.
“The Social Security Administration’s (Supplemental Security Income) program is intended for individuals whose income is below the federal poverty guidelines, who are truly disabled, and cannot engage in work activity,” U.S. Attorney BJay Pak said. “Williams was able to work and therefore she was not disabled. Moreover, the income she received by working would have likely rendered her ineligible for SSI. By getting SSI when she did not qualify, she stole money from the most needy members of our communities: the poor and the disabled.”
