MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — A former Mt. Juliet High School teacher and coach was charged with aggravated statutory rape of a 16-year-old student.

Timothy Williams, 30, communicated with the teen on Instagram before picking her up at one of her friend's home where she was supposed to spend the night, according to Metro Nashville Police officials.

Police say he drove her to his home in Nashville then back to Mt. Juliet early the next morning.

Detectives say there could be other victims given that Williams was employed at the high school for several years prior to their investigation.

Anyone with information about Williams that they believe should come to the attention of law enforcement was asked to call MNPD Youth Services Detective Edward Conrads at 615-862-7417.

Williams was a track and football coach. Wilson County School officials released the following statement:

“Upon learning about the criminal allegations surrounding Mr. Williams, the district met with him and then immediately placed him on suspension. At that time, our schools were not is session due to Summer break. Before the start of this school year, Mr. Williams resigned while he remained on suspension. He had been an employee with the district since 2013 teaching Social Studies. We have worked very closely with local law enforcement throughout their investigation and will continue to do so moving forward.”
