Jamila Love Williams, 35, was booked at the The Kent County Jail just before 6 p.m. She was charged with counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, all of which are felonies. No bond was set. More victims have come forward since Williams was charged, so the algebra teacher could face additional charges. Williams, a teacher at University Prep Academy for four years, was first accused of having sex with two students.
The Kent County Prosecutor’s office authorized warrants for four counts of third degree criminal sexual conduct against the teacher. Allegedly, she sexually assaulted two boys–ages 15 and 16–at various locations in Grand Rapids over the past three months. After the police’s investigation into Williams’ conduct became public, more alleged victims have come forward. The prosecutor’s office is reviewing those cases.
Michigan Live reports that Williams has confessed to having sex with at least two boys. The 16-year-old victim says he had sex with Williams at his home, a park, her car and other locations. The 15-year-old victim claims he and Williams had sex in her car and even in an allay.
Williams has four children, ages 19, 13, 9, and 3, and twin step-children, age 16. She has been placed on administrative leave.
If convicted, Williams could face up to 15 years in prison.
