A former 911 operator has been found guilty of hanging up on people calling for emergency services and sentenced to 10 days in jail and 18 months of probation.
Harris County jurors on Wednesday found 44-year-old Crenshanda Williams guilty of interference with emergency telephone calls, a misdemeanor.
Williams worked as a 911 operator for a year and a half at the Houston Emergency Center, Texas, until she was caught in August 2016 and fired.
Records showed that thousands of calls lasting less than 20 seconds were attributed to her hanging up.
Two calls found during the investigation included a caller trying to report a violent robbery and another where a caller said two drivers were racing down an interstate.
Williams told investigators she often hung up because she didn’t want to talk to anyone at those times.
