A violent felon was sentenced to 22 years in prison for his role in a home invasion conspiracy aimed at stealing 12 kilograms of cocaine and killing anyone that stood in the way, according to the United States Attorney Walt Green.

Williams' sentence was enhanced because he was deemed a career offender. At the age of 28, he has three prior felony adult convictions for crimes of violence and eight other convictions.
