A former Medical College of Georgia nurse has been indicted on a charge of racketeering regarding phony time sheets for hours worked.

According to a Richmond County grand jury indictment returned Tuesday, Alishia N. Williams, 58, faces charge of theft and violation of the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Williams is accused of collecting about $20,000 in unearned salary in 2009 while working through the medical school as the lead nurse at a state run substance abuse treatment center in Decatur, Ga. The indictment alleges Williams submitted the fraudulent time sheets to the Augusta school.

Say it ain't so!

All our employees have such. sterling. character. here at GRUntsville, even if some just can't help jumping right in the trough and gorging as much as they can.

But then again, when the Georgia Board of Rejects doesn't pay people a decent living wage for the work they do, and refuses to give employees even cost of living increases for 5 years--even as the cost of everything soars, it's just not that hard to understand why someone might find it very, very hard not to take advantage when they thought they had the chance.

She still should get nailed, good and hard.

Private employees steal from

Private employees steal from the owner, public employees steal from all of US! (that work and pay taxes that is).

I can't stand a thief, throw the darned book at her.

Alishia

Just don't forget, before everyone gets all wound up on here, Alishia has been indicted on alleged charges. Nothing has been proven in a court of law. If it is proven true, THEN punish her according to the law.

I'm all for throwing the book

I'm all for throwing the book at this women if proven guilty.

But I have to ask, what is this "faces charge of theft and violation of the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act"?

Has it gotten to the point that we can't charge a person for the crime committed without throwing in new and improved charges?

I guess we need to keep the legal system busy. After all, they contribute so, so much to society.

why not same charges against Deputy Sheriff

that didn't work the hours she claimed, but instead would park her tax-payer funded patrol car at home for hours on end. Wasn't she the same one the new sheriff promoted?
