(UPDATE: The indictment says the contraband was a cellphone and battery. Williams is free on a $5,000 signature bond.)

Former Atlanta police Maj. Pearlene Williams, once Chief Richard Pennington’s chief of staff, was indicted today in DeKalb County on two felony counts. Williams, a 28-year APD veteran, was charged with violating her oath and furnishing prohibited items to an inmate. Her son, Muhammad Kareem, 22, was jailed until recently in DeKalb for a 2007 pawn shop killing. He is now serving a life sentence in a state prison for murder.
