A 13-year and 15-year old have alleged to their parents; who in turn told the police, that Williams had sexual relations with them on multiple occasions. Williams states she had sex with the thriteen-year-old roughly fifty times since September 2018 when he was 12-years-old and the fifteen-year-old five to six times.

Court documents and the statement of probable cause allege that Williams told the boys “not to tell anyone”. In a text message retrieved by police, Williams texted that she was pregnant and was “100% sure” the thriteen-year-old was the father. A controlled call between Williams and the boy’s father took place and she allegedly admitted to having sex with both boys.

Police interviewed Williams on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, in which the statement of probable cause says she admitted to police that she had engaged in sexual activities with both boys on numerous occasions.

Williams was charged with two counts of second-degree rape, two counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the household or of a family member, and two counts of sexual abuse of a minor in a continuing course of conduct, which is all felony offenses.

Williams is currently being held without bond at the St. Mary’s County Detention Center.
