BROOKSVILLE, Fla. – Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Jessica Williams, 31, of Inverness, on three counts of falsifying records.
Williams worked as a contractor for the Department of Children and Families as an adult protective investigator.
 
An investigation was launched between the DCF Office of Inspector General and FDLE after allegations that Williams falsified two documents on March 16, 2015, and March 30, 2015. According to the investigation, Williams documented in client case notes that she attempted to contact a child protective investigator (CPI) regarding a minor child. The child was living at the residence of a vulnerable adult whom Williams supervised. An investigation by DCF ascertained that Williams did not contact the CPI as her notes indicated.
 
Investigators also found Williams falsified information regarding an initial home visit to the same vulnerable adult.
 
The investigation was presented to the Office of the State Attorney, 5th Circuit, who filed charges. Williams was arrested yesterday and booked into the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office. Bond was set at $6,000.
