group home

Meoshi Nelson Williams, whose group homes were the focus of last week’s Lagniappe cover story, was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service for probation violations on Jan. 24.

U.S. District Judge Terry F. Moorer imposed on her a 24-month prison sentence and an additional year of federal probation despite pleas from Williams and her attorney that sending her to prison would prevent her from paying restitution to victims of the fraud scheme she pleaded guilty to in 2015.
