Dothan Police Sergeant Andy Martin announced on Tuesday that Julia Yvette Williams, 32, had been arrested and charged with felony trafficking of cocaine and felony unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Records show that police charged Williams with trafficking 44 grams of cocaine from her home late last week.
Police seized the drugs after investigators served a search warrant at Williams’ home on October 11th. The arrest was delayed over a month while an ongoing investigation was conducted into the supplier of the narcotics. Williams was released from jail after she posted bail totalling $75,000.
Julia Yvette Williams had previously been charged by Dothan police in 2004 on a similar cocaine trafficking charge. She pleaded guilty and received a 10 year prison sentence. Williams was also ordered to complete a substance abuse program within the state Department of Corrections.
