Williams is accused of using a department-issued vehicle to visit a woman on nights he was called out to investigate crimes. The woman reported their extramarital relationship in June.

The former detective is also accused of having a sexual relationship with another woman whose husband is charged in a child sex case as a result of an investigation he led.

Williams says his investigation was complete before any relationship with the suspect’s wife.
