A man facing extradition under child molestation charges is accusing everyone, from the sheriffs to the judge, of injustice.

"You will be charged as soon as I get out. I promise you that. You don't understand who I am," said Anthony Williams. He also accused deputies of physically and verbally attacking him.

Hawaii's attorney general says Williams calls himself a "Private Attorney General", and was illegally practicing law in the islands. Later it was uncovered that Williams was wanted in Georgia, and charged with felony child molestation.

Williams said authorities there never should have charged him in the first place.

The judge responded by saying, "I heard you say both your son and yourself were charged?"

"No, we were falsely charged. What I'm saying is who Georgia has charged officially, is not me. It's a legal fiction, all capital letters, Anthony Troy Williams, said Williams. "That's not me with a social security number. I do not have a social security number. That's who they are charging.

A judge delayed the rest of Williams' extradition hearing until Thursday as the state waits for more fingerprints to verify whether Williams is indeed the person charged in Georgia.
