Williams told investigators he felt bad for the victim and wanted to turn himself in. Phone messages revealed several conversations with the victim, which confirmed Williams’ sexual involvement and apparent remorse.

Williams has been charged with one count of Second Degree Statutory Sodomy and one count of First Degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Williams is currently housed at the Lincoln County Jail under a $50,000 cash only bond.

Those charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
