NASHVILLE – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the arrest of a case officer in Cheatham County, charged with extorting one of his clients.
At the request of 23rd District Attorney General Ray Crouch, TBI Special Agents began investigating Michael Dewayne Williams on May 9th. Williams has been employed as a case officer for Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency Community Corrections. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that in his capacity as a case officer, Williams instructed a client to pay him cash in order to avoid having the client’s probation violated, and to avoid a harsher sentence.
On Tuesday, Williams, 25, was arrested in Ashland City by TBI Agents after he accepted payment from the client. Williams is charged with one count of Extortion. He was booked into the Cheatham County Jail on a $2,500 bond. His current employment status is unknown.
