Joya Williams, who was convicted of conspiring to steal trade secrets from Coca-Cola Co., was sent to jail because of concerns that she could be a flight risk. U.S. District Judge J. Owen Forrester told Williams that her behavior since her arrest in July has showed she "would do anything to avoid going to jail." Williams, 41, faces as many as 10 years in prison for conspiring to steal trade secrets from the Atlanta-based beverage giant and sell them to rival PepsiCo Inc.
