Bobby Williams, Jr., 18, is under arrest after he was caught sending inappropriate pictures to a 13-year-old female and sneaking into her window.

According to Decatur County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Vincent Edmond, Williams previously worked with the young female’s mother and had expressed an interest in her. The mother informed Williams her daughter was only 13 and to stay away from her.

Edmond also warned Williams to not have contact with the daughter, as she was only 13.

However, Williams did not heed either warning and was caught sneaking into the daughter’s window on February 20.

Two days later, Edmond responded to the address on Wine Court, where the mother had found Williams.

After speaking with the mother and her daughter, Edmond learned Williams had a sexual encounter with the young female and sent her explicit photographs of himself.

Despite knowing the female’s age, Williams told her he was only 16-years-old, and it was “okay to talk to him.”

Williams was later arrested by Edmond for two counts of child molestation, due to both the sexual encounter and photographs. He was also charged with criminal trespass and giving false information to the young female. He is currently being held on a $16,900 bond.
