Pictured is Ms. Lillie Williams receiving a check on August 6, 2013 for $4,000.00 as restitution from Charles Ballay, District Attorney of Plaquemines Parish, and Joe Roberts, Asst. D.A.

Ms. Williams was the victim in the case of State vs Cornelius Washington that resulted in a conviction with the sentence requiring restitution to her. Mr. Washington, a contractor, was prosecuted under La. R.S. 14:67.21.B. (1) that prohibits theft of assets of an aged person. Washington had taken advantage of Ms. Williams’ age and situation.

Since taking office in 2009 D.A. Ballay has obtained over half a million dollars in restitution payments for victims.
