Her lawyer, Carman, reportedly said in court Thursday that Williams may have had a "daydream" about hurting Peter that she took too far but that she never would have carried though with the act.
Williams, whose children range in age 11 to 19, has been accused of asking private detective Joe LaBella to refer her to a hit man to kill her husband.
Instead, prosecutors say, LaBella, a former police detective himself, put her in touch with an undercover police officer, who allegedly recorded Williams as she worked out having her husband killed. Williams was arrested March 4 after allegedly handing over $500 for a down payment on the hit.
Despite Williams' release from jail, according to Trotter of the Nassau County DA's office, the prosecution remains confident in their case.
"The strength of the evidence will determine the outcome of this case, not the bail status," Trotter said.
