[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A fugitive discovered posing as a "private attorney general" in Hawaii will soon be returned to Georgia to face charges of felony child molestation.

Acting on a no-bail warrant issued by the State of Georgia, special agents from the Hawaii Department of the Attorney General arrested 42-year-old Anthony T. Williams on Friday .

Williams is being held pending extradition to Georgia. Williams’ initial court appearance is set for next Wednesday.

According to Attorney General David Louie, officials became aware of Williams when complaints were filed against him for appearing in federal and state courts as a "private attorney general" representing private parties in various types of litigation.

Louie’s office confirmed that Williams is not a licensed attorney in Hawaii and is not authorized to practice law in Hawaii.

Anyone who hired Williams believing that he was a licensed attorney in the state of Hawaii and received what was believed to be legal assistance, representation or advice is asked to contact the Investigations Division, Department of the Attorney General at 586-1240.
