Indictment on RICO Charges in Fulton County for Husband of ‘Steve Harvey Morning Show’ Co-Host

According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s office, Earnest Williams was far from earnest in his actions, as he reportedly exploited multiple victims for his own financial gain.

According to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, the individual in question has been engaging in fraudulent activities from 2009 to 2022.

According to Willis, he explained that the individual in question would present himself as a reputable entrepreneur, while in reality, he was engaging in fraudulent activities, such as embezzling money, stealing vehicles, and exploiting unsuspecting individuals.

According to a 39-count indictment, Earnest is accused of engaging in fraudulent marriage with popular radio personality Shirley Strawberry, who is a co-host on the well-known “Steve Harvey Morning Show.”

Deputy District Attorney Will Wooten stated that the individual utilized their perceived success to deceive and defraud others.

According to the documents, he was fully aware of the fact that he entered into a fraudulent marriage.

According to Willis, it is believed that she encountered a man, developed feelings for him, and eventually married him. However, the reality is that during this period, he was already married to another person.

Attorneys claim that Williams exploited her marriage to Strawberry in order to target vulnerable individuals. According to documents, it appears that Williams deceived and defrauded a minimum of 25 victims, amounting to over $750,000, over a span of 12 years.

He is accused of stealing personal vehicles, motorcycles, coach buses, and other properties by issuing bad checks or refusing to return the items.

According to Wooten, the individual in question would present himself as a lawful entrepreneur, when in reality, he was deceiving and robbing unsuspecting victims.

Ericka King, a co-conspirator, is also mentioned in the indictment. According to the charges, she posed as an attorney and falsely represented Williams in court hearings.

According to Wooten, Earnest Williams frequently gave the impression of having a close or romantic relationship with many of his victims, and he would exploit these relationships to deceive them into giving him money, vehicles, trailers, RVs, and other valuable belongings.

According to the district attorney, a significant number of the victims are women, and he strongly suspects that there are additional victims yet to be identified.
