Moss Point man accused of teen’s assault appears in court

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - A Moss Point man accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a teenager was in court Friday.

Jimmy David Williams’s preliminary hearing was continued until February 22 pending the outcome of a drug charge against him by Jackson County.

Investigators say in March of 2018, Williams kidnapped a 14-year-old while she was waiting for the school bus, sexually assaulted her, then dropped her off at Moss Point High School. Williams was arrested last month in Atlanta.

The off-campus assault led to the hiring of a chief resource officer for the Moss Point School District.
