Blog: Olly WehringDivine retribution for Coke secret seller?

Olly Wehring | 7 February 2007

I guess it’s hard to feel too much sympathy for Joya Williams.

The ex-Coca-Cola secretary was found guilty late last week of trying to sell on secrets from her former employer to arch rival Pepsi. While she’s still awaiting sentence - one that could throw her in jail for up to ten years - I doubt I’d find any of you who think the courts should be too lenient on her.

But enough’s enough, surely?

On the same day that Williams was found guilty, a fire broke out in the apartment complex where she lives. The blaze, thought to have been started by an unattended candle, destroyed several apartments in the building.

When it rains it pours, eh?
