Micah 'Katt' Williams Misses Seattle Court Date

Katt Williams

A miscommunication between the City Attorney's Office in Seattle and comedian Micah “Katt” Williams lead to his absence at a mandatory arraignment hearing, a dangerous state of legal affairs for a would be defendant that fortunately for the actor only resulted in a rescheduling of the court date. Had things turned out slightly differently, a missed arraignment might have led to an arrest.

Stand-up comedian Micah "Katt" Williams was a no-show Thursday morning at his arraignment in Seattle Municipal Court. But he had an excuse.

Williams' attorney, Thomas McAllister, told the judge his client was under the impression that he did not have to appear at the arraignment and has returned to California, where he lives. McAllister said that Williams read a Seattle Times story earlier this week in which a spokeswoman for the City Attorney's Office mistakenly said that he did not have to appear if an attorney was in court on his behalf.
