ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) - The assistant principal at a Rock Hill school was arrested Tuesday and charge with multiple counts of sexual conduct with a 16-year-old student.

Kenneth Andrew Williams, 30, is charged with four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, and one count each of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and unlawful conduct toward a child.

The case, investigators said, involves a 16-year-old female student who attends Northwestern High School, where Williams is assistant principal.

Police said the reported incidents occurred at a residence, or residences, within the city limits of Rock Hill, and not at the school or on school property.

They said that the first interaction occurred around May of 2014.

The victim reported the incidents to the School Resource Officer at Northwestern last week. The officer then turned the case over to Rock Hill detectives.

School officials say Williams, who has been an employee for four years, was placed on administrative leave last week when the allegations surfaced.
