A former Cobb County law firm worker has been sentenced for trying to bilk $25,000 from his employer to pay for a luxury car.
Oscar Williams Jr., 40, was ordered to spend three years in prison, according to a Tuesday news release from the Cobb district attorney’s office.
According to indictment documents, Williams worked at the Perrie and Associates firm near Cobb Galleria between 2015 and 2017.
His job title isn’t clear, but a warrant said he was an employee “with fiduciary responsibilities.”
Investigators said he wrote 11 unauthorized checks to pay for his 2013 Mercedes Benz E350 and its insurance policy.
About $12,000 cleared the bank before the firm found out and canceled the remaining checks.
Williams was ordered to pay the money back after he pleaded guilty and was sentenced Aug. 27. He will live on supervised release for 12 years after his prison term.
Prosecutors said Williams also faces similar charges in Fulton County and also Rockville, Maryland.
