Victims “Prepared To Testify” In Case Of Teacher Accused Of Sex With Students
A former teacher at University Prep Academy in Grand Rapids, accused of having sex with some of her students, was back in court Wednesday.
Jamila Williams is facing seven counts of criminal sexual conduct for having sex or inappropriate contact with four teen boys.
She waived her preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
The case will now head to circuit court for possible trial.
High-profile attorney from L.A., Gloria Allred, was also in Wyoming District court in support of the victim’s parents again Wednesday.
“They are going to be very brave. They are going to be very courageous. If Mrs Williams exercises her right to go to trial, she’s going to have to face these boys. They’re going to take the witness stand. They’re going to tell the truth,” said Allred.
You may recognize Allred as a legal commentator on national news programs.
Most recently, she appeared on CNN to talk about the George Zimmerman case.
She typically represents women in high-profile cases.
Allred told us she’s in West Michigan because she felt for the moms tied to the case.
