A former Frederick resident has been indicted on eight counts related to identity theft, fraud and theft.
Curtis Williamson, 53, the subject of a News-Post five-part investigation, was indicted on May 29 in Berkeley County, West Virginia. The charges all stem from his time with Stephanie Furr, his fifth wife.
A grand jury indicted Williamson on a charge of financial exploitation of an elderly person, a charge of felony fraudulent scheme, three counts of identity theft and three counts of fraudulent and related activity in connection with access devices.
The indictment includes charges related to Williamson’s alleged actions against Furr and her son.
“It has been a year now and he is still out on the loose and has yet to go to trial for what he has done to myself, my grandmother, and Trina (the woman who was his victim after me). In fact, while he is living life as normal, my grandmother and I are still sitting here with our credit destroyed and listed as deceased with some of the credit bureaus. I just wish they would catch him so at least some sense of justice could be felt by myself and family,” Furr said in an email.
Furr married Williamson on Dec. 2, 2013. At the time, Williamson used the name Kurt Williams. He previously married four other women, three of whom he divorced.
Furr learned her husband’s true identity on May 31, 2018, when she and Williamson were charged with fraud and elder abuse, after Williamson allegedly stole the identity of Furr’s grandmother, opened credit cards in her name and misused her bank account. Prosecutors in Berkeley County dropped the charges against Furr after determining that she was a victim.
The indictment has not yet been served on Williamson, according to the Berkeley County court clerk’s office. A hearing for Williamson’s arraignment is set for June 26 at 1 p.m.
“The entire situation angers me and breaks my heart at the same time. I pray every day that no one else has fallen victim to his deception,” Furr said in an email.
Williamson’s attorney Patrick Kratovil did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
An open body attachment, ordering Williamson to appear in court in Frederick County for an unrelated case, has not been served on Williamson.
