The case against former Grayson County High School teacher Roger Williams will soon be presented to the Grayson County Grand Jury.

At Williams' preliminary hearing on Tuesday, evidence was presented against Williams, and special Judge C. Derek Reed ruled there was probable cause for the case to be presented to the Grayson County Grand Jury.

The grand jury will next meet on Aug. 7, but Grayson County Circuit Court Clerk Stacie Blain said the case does not have to be presented to the Grand Jury at its next meeting, so the courts are unsure when it will be heard.

Williams, 62, of Clarkson, was arrested by the Kentucky State Police on Wednesday, May 9 and was charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and one count of possessing/viewing matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, in relation to an alleged inappropriate sexual relationship with a minor student.

Later that month, Williams pleaded not guilty to all charges brought against him.

Reed, regular Judge for the 10th Judicial District, was appointed to preside over the case on May 30. The case is being prosecuted by Jon Heck, of Attorney General Andy Beshear's Office of Special Prosecutions, and Williams is being represented by Dennie Hardin, of Dennie Hardin & Associates, out of Bowling Green.

Williams was released from the Grayson County Detention Center on May 10 when he posted $5,000 cash for a $10,000/50-percent-cash bond.
