Another day, another criminal story about an NFL football player.  This time the Buc’s Mike Williams is allegedly the victim of a domestic violence dispute at his home.  There are multiple witnesses to the incident, but it allegedly involved horseplay between the two brothers.  Because of their relationship as brothers, the incident is categorized as “domestic”.  If they were not related, it would be simply a battery or aggravated battery.  The suspect, Eric Baylor, turned himself into the jail last night.  Because this is a domestic crime, he was not entitled to bail until he appeared before the judge at his “First Appearance” or what the call in Tampa (PP Court) which stands for Preliminary Presentation.  Bail was set at $1,000.00.

Mike Williams allegedly told the police he was stabbed while he and his brother were “horsing around”.  However, other witnesses stated that the brothers were arguing that allegedly resulted in one brother stabbing the other.  In all likelihood, Mike Williams will probably sign a “Waiver of Prosecution” and ask that charges be dropped based upon his version of th events that night.  The prosecutor has discretion to decide whether to file charges and what criminal charges to file.  Because a knife and stabbing were involved, he was charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon which is a 2nd degree felony that carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in Florida State Prison.

This being a crime of violence and a felony, it can serious consequences beyond any prison time if charges are filed and he is convicted of this or any lesser criminal offense.  It can affect a person’s ability to get a job, rent an apartment, possess or carry a firearm, or vote.

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
