Warren man charged with corruption, indecent assault, indecent exposure

A Wayne Street man is behind bars on charges ranging from indecent assault to corruption of minors for alleged conduct against two juvenile females.

David S. Williams, 38, 116 E. Wayne St., was charged on May 16 by City of Warren police and arraigned by District Judge Raymond Zydonik on Monday.

He’s been in the county jail since Monday after he was unable to post $35,000 bail.

The investigation commenced on Feb. 13 when, according to the affidavit of probable cause, police were contacted by Warren County Children and Youth Services.

The affidavit states that a report was received from a teacher who overheard a student telling another student about things Williams had allegedly “done to her over the past eight years.”

That student disclosed to her teacher the nature of the conduct, which included alleged inappropriate touching of the girl. A subsequent interview with the juvenile revealed that Williams had allegedly “been doing inappropriate things to her since she was six years old.”

A “collateral interview” with a second juvenile uncovered additional alleged conduct. The second juvenile also reported that she “found a baby monitor hidden in her bedroom” in 2020 “pointing directly to the area where she gets dressed at. The other monitor was located in the basement, where the defendant hangs out at,” the affidavit states.

Online court records show charges of three counts of corruption of minors, indecent assault and indecent exposure at one docket and three counts each of corruption of minors and indecent exposure at the second docket.

A preliminary hearing will be held next month.
