Based on what is written in the arrest report, “The victim is unable to read and write. The defendant has never taken the victim to a doctor even when she has been very ill.”
Sometimes, McGriff-Williams allegedly did not give the girl food.
“The victim would have to beg to eat, and the defendant would not always provide food to the victim,” police wrote in an arrest report.
McGriff-Williams was involuntarily admitted under the Baker Act criteria at Jackson South Hospital last month on Aug. 26.
The Baker Act is a Florida law that enables families and loved ones to provide emergency mental health services and temporary detention for people who are impaired because of mental illness and unable to determine their treatment needs.
McGriff-Williams was hospitalized due to her “altered mental state” after a police officer went to the home after an investigation into allegations from the Florida Department of Children and Families.
At a court appearance on Thursday, Sept. 7, McGriff-Williams pleaded not guilty. A public defender was assigned to her case. No other information has been released.
