Scott County (WVLT) -- The Scott County sheriff calls it the most horrifying incident of sexual abuse he has seen since taking office.

He was arrested and remains in jail on a $750,000 bond.

In the indictment, it says that Williams was involved in a sex ring against children ages three to approximately thirteen in both Scott and Morgan counties.

The indictment says the children were family and friends related to Williams.

Williams is scheduled to be arraigned on April 7th.

    This man has major problems!! He shouln't even have a bond. They should send him straight to death row!! How could any person treat or even look at a child in this way. It's discusting. God bless the children he has hurt.
