Georgia Court Clerk Accused of Stealing $1.3m in Fines Over JDecade

A former Georgia court clerk who stole fines and fees was sentenced to more than 12 years Thursday.

A judge in Columbus, Ohio, sentenced Willie Demps, 64, to Phenix City, Alabama. Demps admitted to bank fraud and tax evasion this year.

Federal prosecutors say Demps committed fraud while serving as a deputy court clerk for 30 years. Demps collected fines, fees, and other payments, often in cash kept in a safe.

Investigators found the office made $5.5 million from 2010 to 2019, but only $210 was deposited in 2019. No cash deposits were made before 2010 and bank records were unavailable.

In the fraud case, five more people were sentenced.

According to deputies, Quartavius Mender threatened to kill the Fulton sheriff and his wife if a YSL member was not released.

During the same period, Demps allegedly wrote 330 checks totalling $1.3 million from the clerk’s office to several accomplices, who cashed them and gave him a cut.

Demps admitted using the money for personal expenses, sending money abroad, and gambling.

Instead of serving Muscogee County, Willie Demps served himself. U.S. Attorney Peter D. Leary said Demps stole millions of dollars from Muscogee County taxpayers to fund his gambling habit and pay for personal expenses.

“I want to commend the FBI, IRS, and Columbus Police Department for their meticulous and relentless effort to seek justice in this case.”

“I want to express my gratitude to the FBI, IRS, and Columbus Police Department for their thorough and unwavering efforts to bring this case to justice.”

Judge Clay Land ordered Demps to pay $1.3 million in restitution to the clerk’s office and $360,000 in uncollected taxes from his retirement benefits to the IRS.
