(Plattsburg, Mo.)— A Cameron high school teacher accused of sex crimes has pleaded not guilty.

Derek Williams, a broadcasting teacher at Cameron High School, appeared through a web camera in Clinton County Court during a hearing Friday morning.

Williams' attorney asked the judge for a bond reduction to allow Williams to return home and be with his family—the request was denied.

Williams was charged last month with possession of child pornography and sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to court documents, Williams is accused of possessing child pornography and creating videos by secretly recording two victims under the age of 18. The documents also accused Williams of having sexual intercourse with a third victim under the age of 17.

Williams' next hearing is scheduled for Novemeber 30 at 9 a.m.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
