By accepting the plea deal, Williams will have the witness tampering charges dropped against him. His sentencing is now a minimum of 60 months and a max of 71 months.

Courts revealed Williams used his cell phone to search for the address where the vechile was two hours before the arson occured. The vehicle Williams drove in was captured on toll plaza cameras traveling from GEorgia to Florida before the arson.


“R. Kelly had nothing to do with these alleged acts by these people,” Kelly’s lawyer said in response.
