Williams Sentencing Postponed

By Howard Schwach

A Far Rockaway gangbanger whose sentencing was set for June 6 has received a short reprieve in Queens Supreme Court when that sentencing was postponed until June 27.

Paul Williams, 35, of Hartman Lane in Far Rockaway, faces 50 years in prison when that sentencing is completed later this month.

Williams was found guilty following two hours of deliberation, by a jury of six men and six women. In addition to murder he was convicted on second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault.

Richard Brown said in a statement.

According to trial testimony, on September 14, 2009, outside 1315 Augustina Avenue, Williams, armed with an assault rifle, began firing numerous shots into a crowd of people who were at that location. The victim, Ronald Washington, 28, also of Far Rockaway, was fatally struck four times in the upper torso.

Todd Jamison, 45, of Cedarhurst, New York, was struck in the leg, resulting in the amputation of his leg above the knee.
