I have known Jim WIlliamson for 14 years. In all the time I have known him he would help you anyway that he could. I am so tired of the rumors floating around about him. He is a fine man.. He has helped Telfair County in several different ways. Always willing to go the extra mile to help out. If the truth be known most likely he is having to take the fall for at least two of the counties prior deputies that is full of spite because he FIRED THEM!!!!!! I feel sorry for Jim, he is to good to have mess like this going on in his life. He has not made large purchases, he doesnt flaunt money I see no evidence to support that it would be him that commited the crime. He does not drive a BMW or does he take 6 months off of work to goof off. He has always been available. I dont belive that he has ever took advantage of this messed up county. I strongly belive that he has been set up. I will defend him till the end of time. He is a wonderful man and does not deserve the treatment that he is getting right now. Maybe people should dig a little deeper. I think the problem is not the sheriff but the select few that was under him. Jim Williamson has been a fine sheriff of the county, He hasnt been like prior sheriff's and gotten young girls pregnant or run a drug operation. I think he has been the best one so far and the county has made a big mistake. Jim if there is anyway I can help you I damn sure will. I will be one of your supporters that will help you anyway and everyway i can. That is a promise!!!

Though I did not know Jim extremely well in high school, and I have not lived in McRae since I graduated from college, my associations with him showed kindness. At the least, our founding fathers made certain as Americans we are innocent until proven guilty. Should some of these allegations prove to be true, remember until you walk in a mans shoes you do not know his journey. I don't believe in breaking the law, but I do believe in redemption and compassion when people are in need. Words can hurt more than stones. If he is guilty, he will still need people to care for him until he corrects his path.

Does he have a family, and how much money is missing?

yes he does have a family. He has a small child and a wife. They have not said a dollar amount just yet. He will need caring people and I hope the county will come together and be there for him. I know that I will. I wish the slander would stop. Jim is a really good man. I truly belive he was set up. His lifestyle has not changed the whole time as sheriff. This is just angry people disrupting his life. They are scared he may want to run for sheriff again. So they need to do whatever it takes to try to ruin a good honest man.

I think he admitted to the Federal Judge in open court that he was in fact GUILTY of stealing, taking bribes, etc, etc....?????? Didn't he? And he just happened to get charged as he was trying his best to get that convicted drug dealer's brother lowe from jacksonville in as sheriff so they could continue to hold on to their their lucrative positions as sheriff and chief deputy, Didn't They???? Give us a break! The people here know how to spot corruption all too well here in telfair, Don't we????
