Paralegal Charged with Credit Card Theft from Law Firm

California paralegal Phelicia Williams, formerly with Price and Associates, an Oakland civil rights litigation law firm, has been charged with multiple felonies, including using firm credit cards to charge more than $7,000.00 in unauthorized purchases. She has entered “not guilty” pleas to all charges.

Price and Associates did not know that Ms. Williams was on probation from a prior 2005 forgery conviction. I suspect their future hires may have to agree to a more stringent background check. Some of the criminal charges stem from Ms. Williams’ internship with the City of Oakland Mayor’s Office, which also did not check her background.
