Statement from Sheriff Williams

JACKSONVILLE, FL (December 6, 2017) - Statement from Sheriff Mike Williams.


"Regarding our undercover officer’s comments in court, during his Victim Impact Statement, last week:

We have discussed proper courtroom demeanor and professionalism with the officer. I’m grateful for the outcome of the incident and that I am able to have a conversation with my officer.

He continues to deal with the incident that could have taken both his life and that of his young son, as he will for the rest of his life. I believe justice was served with the jury’s verdict. God knows how many others could have been harmed or killed had the suspect not been apprehended."
