CLINTON COUNTY, Mo. – A former teacher waived his preliminary hearing Friday morning, on child exploitation charges in Clinton County.

William Derek Williams, 39, was suspended from his part time job in the Cameron R-I School District when the Sheriff’s Department began investigating complaints of inappropriate behavior. Williams is charged with three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of exploitation of a minor and one count of second degree statutory sodomy. Authorities say Williams was filming children at his home.

Williams will be arraigned in Circuit Court on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.
