Katt Williams facing criminal charges in Georgia

Most people in Georgia are familiar with Katt Williams for his long comedy career, but he recently made headlines for his personal life rather than his comedic stylings. Williams is currently facing multiple criminal charges in two different counties for incidents that allegedly occurred earlier in the year. After being briefly jailed in both counties, he posted a $10,000 bond and was released.

In April 2016, an area restaurant manager accused Williams of throwing a salt shaker at his face. He claims that he received a bloody lip from the altercation. Although it is not entirely clear what occurred just prior to the alleged incident, a warrant was eventually issued, and Williams recently turned himself in. Local authorities discovered the existence of another warrant in a different county and transferred him after his booking was complete.

The second warrant and arrest is apparently related to an incident that occurred even earlier in the year. In Feb. 2016, Williams was accused of throwing and breaking another man's cellphone. After unsuccessfully seeking money from Williams for the alleged incident -- a move which a spokesperson for Williams referred to as a financial shakedown -- the man opted to pursue charges with the police.

Criminal charges can have an undeniably profound impact on a person's life. For most defendants in Georgia, this impact can be minimized through the strategic and timely approach to defense. In general, thoroughly reviewing all charges and allegations under the supervision of a respective counsel is the first step to understanding which defense approach is the most appropriate course of action to take.
