Sampson County Woman Pleads Guilty To State Tax Charges

Date: 12/1/2004

RALEIGH – A Clinton woman pleaded guilty Monday in Wake County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Alcoa Nashea Williams, 27, of 405 W. Carter Street, Clinton, pleaded guilty on Nov. 30, 2004, to four felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.

Wake County District Court Judge Paul Gessner sentenced Williams to a six-month minimum, eight-month maximum prison term. The sentence was suspended and Williams was placed on supervised probation for 36 months. She was also ordered to pay restitution of $1,050 and pay a $400 criminal fine.

A Department of Revenue investigation found that Williams filed false North Carolina individual income tax returns using the names and Social Security numbers of deceased individuals, representing that these individuals were employed by a local business and had North Carolina income taxes withheld from their wages during 2002.

The charges against Williams resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.
