Williams, a bookkeeper for the charity, concocted the disfigurement plan as her boss began asking questions about the loss of funds.

Between 2013 and 2015, Williams was found to have taken $600,000 for herself and another $150,000 for a friend.

‘The lengthy sentence imposed by the court is appropriate given the heinous nature of the crime,’ said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. 

Dyer was supported by loved ones while in attendance at the sentencing. She carried a number of photos that showed what her both before and after the attack.

‘It’s still difficult to fathom that one person would do to another what was done to me,’ added Dyer. ‘My face and body will carry scars for the rest of my life.’ 

She asserted that the woman used the cash on clothing, handbags and a Mercedes sedan. The defendant was also found to have been using her office computer to run a sex toy business. 

The embezzlement at the hands of Williams forced the Healing Arts Initiative to declare bankruptcy. Dyer shared that she was blindsided by Williams’ original personable disposition. 

‘She started out saccharine sweet and very quickly devolved into something at the other end of the spectrum,’ said Dyer.

Jerry Muhammad, the man who actually threw the acid on Dyer, was also sentenced to 17 years after pleading guilty for the attack. 

A GoFundMe was made for Dyer, soon after the attack. It raised more than $4,000.
