A former University Prep Academy teacher will spend 8-to-15 years in prison on a Criminal Sexual Conduct conviction.
Jamila Love Williams was sentenced today in Kent County Circuit Judge Paul Sullivan's court. She had admitted to having sex with 15 and 16 year old students on a number of occasions from March to May this year. She had faced a total of seven charges, the sentencing reflects three 3rd Degree CSC counts and one 2nd degree charge.
WOOD TV reports Williams expressed her regrets to the court and victim's families. "Someone once asked me am I only sorry because I got caught. No, I'm actually sorry for the pain and hurt that I've caused the many people who are affected by my actions." A mother of one of the victims told Williams "I'm so outraged and overwhelmed I don't even know what else to say or think. I do hope that your kids, your mom and your family will be able to come together, just like me and these other young mothers and family."
