Crews Faces More Charges as Students Come Forward

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office filed additional charges Monday against William R. Crews.

Crews, an eighth-grade social students teacher at Deane Bozeman School, was first arrested last Thursday and charged with sexual battery against students at the school.

Police said he would lure 14- and 15-year-old boys to a storage shed, show them pornography and then perform sexual acts on his victims.

Victims also told investigators that the sexual activity took place when they were on out-of-town trips with Crews

A search warrant on the storage unit turned up a television set, a VCR machine with a pornographic tape, and a sex toy, all items the victims stated were kept by Crews in the storage unit.

Since the arrest, three additional victims have come forward, police said.

By midday Monday, six victims have been identified and given statements. The additional charges filed against Crews are three charges of Distribution of Obscene Material to a Minor and Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition.
