CLINTON COUNTY, Mo. – Ahead of Tuesday’s arraignment in Clinton County Circuit Court for a former part time teacher from Cameron, a motion for change of judge was filed.
The motion filed Monday on behalf of William Derek Williams, 39. asked for the removal of Judge R. Brent Elliott from the child sex charges against Williams. Williams waived his preliminary hearing last week for three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and a single count of statutory sodomy in the second degree.
The judge sustained the motion and a new judge will be assigned to hear the case.
