Gwinnett: Inmate Escapes from Work Detail

An inmate from the Gwinnett County Department of Corrections escaped from a work detail today at 1:15p.m. The inmate is identified as Perry Bernard Williams of Marietta, Georgia. He is described as a black male, 27 years old, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 150 pounds, black hair and brown eyes.

On June 23, 2009, Williams was convicted in Gwinnett Superior Court of theft by receiving stolen property and was sentenced to serve 24 months in the Work Release Program. He subsequently violated program rules and was transferred to full-time incarceration on July 1, 2009.

At the time he escaped, Williams was assigned to an inmate work crew that was clearing mud and flood debris from Collins Hill Park. The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department is investigating Williams’ escape.
