Former PA City employee indicted on theft charge

BEAUMONT, Texas - From Jefferson County D.A.'s Office

A former employee of the City of Port Arthur has been indicted for theft, announced Criminal District Attorney Cory Crenshaw today. The May Term grand jury indicted the case on December 15, 2014.

Shauwn Williams, 40, of Port Arthur, Texas, was indicted on two counts of Felony Theft by a Public Servant.  According to the indictments, from August 17, 2012, through November 2, 2012, Shauwn Williams, who was employed in the city’s Housing Department, submitted fraudulent lawn care invoices for services never rendered to the City of Port Arthur totaling almost $7000.00.  The fraud was discovered during a review of the Housing Department’s financial records.

Additional charges against known and unknown co-conspirators are anticipated at a later date.

If convicted, Williams faces 2-10 years in prison on each charge and up to a $10,000 fine.  Criminal District Attorney Cory Crenshaw will pursue full restitution to ensure that all taxpayer funds are repaid.

The investigation leading to the charges was conducted by investigators with the Criminal District Attorney’s Office with the assistance of the Port Arthur Police Department and Beaumont Police Department.  Assistant Criminal District Attorney Cory Kneeland is prosecuting the case.

A grand jury indictment is not evidence of guilt and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

KFDM's Haley Bull reports council took the vote at its meeting Tuesday afternoon. Smith resigned December 9. Voters elected him Jefferson County District Clerk. Smith recommended Sam's appointment.

Smith was elected to Ward IV council in May, 2007. The term is scheduled to expire in May, 2015. Sam says he's not running for the full-time position.
