A 16-year-old student at Northwest High School in Rock Hill, North Carolina was allegedly taken advantage of by former assistant principal Kenneth Andrew Williams. The student claims to have told Williams that bullies were going to beat her up the next day at noon and he did nothing to prevent the altercation. After it happened, the student is said to have told her peers as well as teachers that she didn’t want to be alone with Williams.
A subsequent police investigation revealed that the 30-year-old administrator was allegedly threatening to alter the students grades and even kidnap her if she didn’t adhere to his sexual requests. Williams has since been charged with four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and unlawful conduct toward a child.
The 16-year-old victim may have helped police to uncover other students that had a similar relationship with Williams based on intimidation and an abuse of power. Williams’ bond was set at $100,000, he’s been placed on administrative leave from work and ordered not to have any contact with the victim or her family.
