EX-administrator at NC surgeon's office charged

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — A former administrator at a plastic surgery practice in Wilmington has been charged with taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from the business.

New Hanover County sheriff's deputies say 44-year-old Guy Robert Williams has been arrested and charged with two counts of embezzling more than $100,000, two counts of embezzlement and one count of forgery.

The sheriff's office said the missing money was reported in April. It was not immediately clear how much money was taken from Wilmington Plastic Surgery.

Williams' attorney, Edwin West, said his client is confident the truth will come out about the matter.

Williams had been with the practice since 2007.

His next court hearing is June 12.
