GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — Sean Williams will have separate trials on his federal child pornography production charges and his escape charges, with his pornography production trial now officially set to start May 21.

Federal judge Ronnie Greer had suggested joining the count related to Williams’ Oct. 18 escape from a transport van to his pornography production charges. Neither Williams’ attorney, Joseph McAfee, nor federal prosecutor Meghan Gomez agreed.

Williams’ charges stem from alleged filmed sexual abuse by him of three different children in his downtown Johnson City apartment. Two of those incidents allegedly occurred in 2020, the other in 2009. Williams also faces child rape charges in state court related to those alleged incidents.

Williams has a plea deadline of May 7 in the child pornography case.
