Thomas L. Williams:

Thomas L. Williams: Convicted Felon Falsified Documents to Obtain Position as a Substitute Teacher Investigators from this office arrested Thomas L. Williams (“Williams”), a 33- year-old convicted felon, after an investigation substantiated that Williams had impersonated a former New York City school teacher, named Thomas E. Williams (“Thomas E.”), in order to illegally work for the BOE as a regular substitute teacher. In total, Williams collected more than $100,000 in wages during the 3½ years that he was employed as a public school teacher. Williams was charged with Grand Larceny in the 2 nd Degree, Forgery in the 2 nd Degree, Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the 1 st Degree, Falsifying Business Records in the 1 st Degree, Unauthorized Practice, Defrauding the Government—all felonies—and with the misdemeanors of Bail Jumping and Criminal Impersonation in the 2 nd Degree. Williams stole the identity of a former NYC teacher and illegally collected more than $100,000, while hiding his own criminal history. Williams’s scheme came to light when Thomas E., a former teacher with the BOE who relocated to Maryland in the summer of 1995, reported to this office that the Internal Revenue Service had notified him that he owed back taxes on money earned from the New York City public school system for a period of time after he had resigned. Investigators subsequently discovered that Williams obtained the social security number and employment history of Thomas E. and used this information to gain regular substitute teaching positions at several public schools in New York City. While working in the school system, Williams was able to hide his extensive criminal history which includes: six arrests, two misdemeanor convictions and one felony conviction—the latter a consequence of impersonating a registered nurse at Harlem Hospital. Recommendations and Results We recommended that Thomas L. Williams’s employment with the BOE be terminated immediately and that this matter be considered should he ever reapply for any position. 68

Williams was arrested in September 1999. He was terminated from the BOE at the time of his arrest and placed on the ineligible list. Subsequently, he was indicted by a Manhattan Grand Jury for Grand Larceny in the 2 nd Degree, Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the 1 st Degree, Forgery in the 2 nd Degree, and Falsifying Business Records in the 1 st Degree, Defrauding the Government, and Unauthorized Practice. Williams pleaded guilty to all the charges on February 1, 2000, and was subsequently sentenced to one year in jail. 69
