HOUSTON COUNTY: This afternoon Clint Williams, a former police officer in Ashford and Taylor, went on trial before 20th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Mike Conaway. The offenses were Conspiracy Possession of Marijuana and Pimp - Soliciting/Comm Prostitution.
The offenses were misdemeanors. That means the maximum possible sentence was one year or less. Houston County District Court Judge Benjamin Lewis recused himself. The Presiding Circuit Judge ordered Judge Mike Conaway to serve as a District Court Judge for the purposes of hearing this case. The case was a bench trial - which means no jury was present.
The case made by Houston County Sheriff Deputy Grantham. The allegations against Clint Ivey Williams of Marie Street in Ashford were: In July 2016 he sought a female for sex and in return he would have her traffic citation dismissed or give her $ 400.00 cash. That is the case where the Pimp - Soliciting/Comm Prostitution.
Judge Mike Conaway convicted Clint Ivey Williams of the Pimp - Soliciting/Comm Prostitution, a class A misdemeanor. Judge Conaway sentenced Clint Ivey Williams to one year in jail, suspended, and a $ 10,000.00 appeal bond.
Judge Conaway found Clint Ivey Williams not guilty of the Conspiracy Possession of Marijuana.
During the trial Clint Ivey Williams was represented by Doug Bates. Bates served as Municipal Court Judge for the City of Ashford and City of Taylor during Clint Ivey Williams tenure as a law enforcement officer.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant 20th Judicial Circuit District Attorney Russ Goodman. Williams was hiding somewhat behind his attorney constantly texting on a telephone during the trial. It is unknown who he was texting.
Also during the trial when Houston County Sheriff Cpl. Grantham was testifying, Clint Ivey Williams,hiding behind his attorney Doug Bates, mouthed the words to Cpl.Grantham "f--- you". Had Judge Conaway witnessed that, well Williams would have a had a long extended stay.
Clint Ivey Williams sold his badge and law enforcement for sex. He was an embarrassment to the Ashford Police Chief, Ashford Police Department, the citizens of Ashford, and all law enforcement officers. His actions to use his office to change the outcome of a case for sex is absolutely a herendous act.
We do not know if the original traffic citation was issued by Williams or not.
With the conviction of Clint Ivey Williams on Pimp - Soliciting/Comm Prostitution it is not clear if he will have to register as a sex offender. The one who registers sex offenders is having to contact the State of Alabama to verify if Clint Ivey Williams will have to register as a sex offender.
