OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A former officer with the Fremont Police Department has been convicted of sexually assaulting a child in 2019.
Austin Williams was found guilty Wednesday in Douglas County Court on three charges, including first- and second-degree sexual assault of a child.
Williams was a police officer when the Fremont Police Department was notified by an advocacy center of his involvement in a potential sexual assault, which was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol. He was arrested in February 2019.
