Jury Trial Set in Williams Case


By Tammy Moore Teague

Former Waldron Assistant Principal Jessica Williams is set to stand trial on five counts of sexual assault in the first degree and one count of tampering with physical evidence.

Williams was arrested back in August after confessing to having an ongoing relationship with a 16 year-old student. See related story– Williams was released after posting a $100,000 bond. However, as part of her release, she was ordered to have no contact with the underaged victim. According to court documents, Williams has allegedly violated those terms. Williams denied those claims, and her attorney responded to the petition to revoke her bond by motioning for discovery.

Williams’ jury trial is set to begin in a Scott County Courtroom on Tuesday, November 20 at 9:30 a.m.
