(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) A former Cameron high school teacher is now facing federal charges for producing child pornography.

A federal grand jury indicted William Derek Williams, 39, for allegedly using three different minor victims to produce child pornography.

Williams was charged in Clinton County in 2018 on three counts possession of child pornography, three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, and one count of statutory sodomy.

He's accused of recording child pornography inside a bathroom in his home by using a camera hidden inside a cell phone charger.

According to court documents from Clinton County, prosecutors said 168 videos and images of minors were found on a computer during a search of Williams' home.

Williams was a former high school language arts teacher and part-time high school multimedia teacher at the time of the alleged crimes.

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.
