Williston is an Asian American with a shaved head, brown eyes, and an olive complexion. He is 6’1”, and he weighs 195 pounds.

Williston’s criminal record includes convictions for grand theft and first-degree burglary, grand larceny and fraudulent use of a financial transaction card, and burglary and attempted strangulation. His sentence was to be completed in August 2025. (end)
