May 16, 2013

MOBILE, AL-- The United States Attorney, Kenyen R. Brown, announces that Katrina Duke Williamson was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Callie V. Granade today to 64 months confinement for embezzling almost $400,000.00 from a law firm in Foley, Alabama where she previously worked.

Williamson faced a two year mandatory minimum confinement sentence for the Aggravated Identity Theft violation under Title 18 USC ยง1028A, in which she plead guilty in November 2012. In addition, the advisory sentencing guidelines for the Bank Fraud offenses was 27 to 33 months, consecutive to the 2 year mandatory minimum on the Aggravated Identity Theft violation. However Judge Granade departed upward from the federal sentencing guidelines and imposed a sentence of 40 months on the Bank Fraud charges to run consecutive to the 2 year mandatory minimum on the Aggravated Identity Theft violation for a total of 64 months confinement. The Court also ordered Williamson to pay $396,699.47 to the victims of the fraud. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
