ST. THOMAS - An attorney at the center of an impasse in the corruption case against former V.I. Sen. Alvin Williams Jr. disclosed new information in court papers Monday explaining his desire to remove his client as a joint defendant and to remove himself from the case.
Attorney George Hodge Jr., who has appeared on behalf of defendant Ace Development, a St. Thomas company owned by Williams' father, Alvin Williams Sr. Hodge filed a motion for severance Monday in District Court seeking to separate Ace Development from the case, which is built around a nine-count indictment filed last November that jointly charges Alvin Williams Jr., two of his former Senate staff members and the company with various crimes.
