Cuy. Co. Judge Revokes Probation - Football Standout Cries On Way To Jail

Looks like former All-American running back, Raymond Williams, from Benedictine High School will be going to jail on probation violation after all.

A recent post here remarked how Cuyahoga County Judge , Shirley Strickland Saffold, continually allowed Williams to break terms of his probation without any ramifications. Yeterday that changed.....

Williams in Saffold's court yesterday, where his probation was revoked by the judge and his sentence of three years was imposed.

It seemed Raymond Williams wanted to be more like Ricky Williams, a former NFL player who was banned for smoking weed!

From the PD --
Williams went to prison for three years this afternoon, hours after testing positive for marijuana use. The positive drug screen was the 21-year-old's first since his 2004 probation for involuntary manslaughter.

Williams swore the test was rigged or wrong, swore he hadn't used any illegal drugs. "I am willing to do any and everything to prove I'm not using marijuana," Williams implored of Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold.

But the judge classified him a probation violator and imposed the minimum sentence for involuntary manslaughter, a sentence Saffold suspended after Williams pleaded guilty. Then Williams broke down in loud, heaving sobs in a holding cell alongside the judge's courtroom.

"It's really sad," Saffold said afterward.

No.... It's really stupid!
