GOLDEN, Colo. - An appliance installer who harassed customers by email and text after visiting their homes for service appointments reached a plea deal Monday in Jefferson County court.
27-year-old Charlie Williams pleaded guilty to one count of felony stalking, and one count of harassment -- which included six different victims.
In May, the CALL7 Investigators broke the story when the Jefferson County District Attorney first charged Williams. The president of a local laundry company that employed him said the independent contractor had been on about a thousand services calls.
One victim, "Angela," told CALL7 Investigator John Ferrugia that she was home alone with Williams for 45 minutes, and started receiving strange emails about a week later -- and then, texts.
"He started talking about stuff in my room; things that were in my room," Angela said. "And I was like, 'How would someone know about what's in my room?'"
Angela said Williams then escalated the harassment, calling her at home and work, and texting her that he had videos of her and a key to her home.
That's when she called police.
Investigators with Lakewood PD said they were particularly concerned because Williams' reported behavior was escalating. They said Angela was one of at least six victims, including Shaina Wilson, who also shared her story with the CALL7 Investigators.
Both Wilson and Angela cooperated with prosecutors on the case against Williams. The County's probation department will decide whether he needs a mental evaluation. He could be sentenced to up to three years in prison when he returns to court in October.
