Convicted Coca-Cola Secretary Will Appeal Her Conviction and Sentence

By Todd
MSNBC is reporting that the secretary convicted in the attempted theft and sale of Coca-Cola's trade secrets is appealing her conviction and sentence.

A lawyer for a former Coca-Cola secretary notified a federal court Thursday that she was appealing her client's conviction and eight-year prison sentence for conspiring to steal trade secrets from the world's largest beverage maker.

Janice Singer filed a brief notice of appeal on behalf of her client, Joya Williams, in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, where The Coca-Cola Co. is based.

The notice did not state a basis for the appeal of Williams' "conviction as well as the judgment and sentence," and there were no further appeal documents immediately filed with the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Supporting documents are typically filed later.
