|Man Who Took Kids to Ala. Churches Charged
October 11, 2010
GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin says a man who often drove children to church is charged with sex abuse involving a 12-year-old girl.
The sheriff says 50-year-old Timothy Derwood Williams has been affiliated with at least two churches in Etowah County, but was not part of a church-sponsored van ministry.
Sheriff's office investigator Carla Carroll says Williams is charged with first-degree sexual abuse. Officials say the allegations stem from a time when Williams' van was parked on his property after he picked up the child to go to church.
Williams was held in the Etowah County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.
