    Ex-college football star found guilty of burglary

    Willie Williams / Provided

    COVINGTON — A Kenton County jury found a former pro football prospect guilty Thursday of a home burglary in Fort Mitchell.
    Willie Williams of Newport, a highly touted linebacker from Florida who played at the University of Louisville and Union College in Barbourville, was found guilty of second-degree burglary and being a persistent felony offender.
    Judge Patricia Summe will sentence Williams on May 8. The jury recommended the 27-year-old be locked up for 15 years. The charges were punishable by 10 years to 20 years in prison.
    Williams’ attorney, F. Dennis Alerding, said his client admitted he was recorded by a security camera outside the Fort Mitchell home but he claimed he was not the one that broke in.
    “Mr. Williams in a dangerous individual who was convicted of a residential burglary in … Georgia a little over a year before he burglarized a residence here in Kenton County,” said Kenton Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders. “In addition, he went straight from his Fort Mitchell burglary to Fort Thomas and was in the process of burglarizing another home there when he was interrupted by the homeowner.”
    Sanders was assisted in the case by Josh McIntosh, a third-year law student at Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University.
    “I was a great experience. The best so far,” McIntosh said. “It confirmed I want to practice my career in the courtroom.”
    Williams attended Carol City High School in Miami, where he was heavily recruited as one of the top linebackers in the nation. He signed in 2004 with the University of Miami and was red-shirted freshman in 2005. He left in 2006 and attended four schools in the next three years – West Los Angeles College, U of L, Glenville State College and Union.
    In 2008, his senior year at Union, he was named to the All-Mid-South Conference East first team, set a single-season school record with 144 tackles, set a single-game school record with 22 tackles and received NAIA Defensive Player of the Week honors, according to the school’s website.
    Several NFL teams scouted him before the 2009 NFL draft, but he went undrafted.
    A Miami Herald article two years ago said Williams was arrested 12 times as a juvenile, and at least four times as an adult through 2009, including a marijuana possession charge at U of L that led to his dismissal from the team.
    Enquirer reporter William Croyle contributed to this report.

    You would think for someone that has as much practice at burglary as Mr Williams would be much better at it.

    About what part? You saying he was 22 in high school and slightly believing you? While I did not think it was possible (thought you were using a bit of hyperbole) I don't know enough about Florida schooling laws to know how long he would be allowed to stay in school past 17/18. I actually did not do the math and did not realize until Prime pointed it out that he committed in 2004 so he would have to be 30 right now. I was serious about how fast time passes and shocked to read he was 27 already because it seemed like just yesterday he was at west l.a college and people thought he might transfer to UCLA.
