Cleophus Williams pleads guilty to stealing from his mother

Cleophus Williams

Also in court today, a forty-seven year old man was convicted of Theft for stealing from his household items from his mother. Cleophus Williams was living with his mother, seventy-two year old Olophia Williams at the corner of Periwinkle and Hibiscus Streets, but disappeared along with jewelry, picture frames and small appliances valued at one thousand, four hundred and twenty-five dollars. He was arrested on Tuesday and pleaded guilty to the charge of Theft when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith this morning.  He claimed that he owned the items, which were left at the house when he last went to prison, but he admitted that he way he took them was wrong and said he didn’t want to waste the court’s time. With that, the Chief Magistrate sentenced him to six months in prison and ordered that he enroll in the twelve step program at the Kolbe Foundation since he admitted to being a drug addict. Williams also has a charge of drug trafficking pending before another Magistrate and he indicated today that he wanted to change his plea to guilty. That matter was set to continue on December fifth, but it will be dealt with on Thursday so that Williams can enter his plea and receive his sentence.

    Drugs are thicker than blood. A good illustration of a sad fact that addicts will steal from anyone, even their mothers.

    I hope the man gets clean this time, so he can be born into a new and drug-free life. Better late than never.
