Poplarville, MS.  Fifteenth Circuit Court District Attorney Hal Kittrell announces that on April 7, 2016, Clyde Eugene Williams, 49, of Poplarville, MS, was sentenced by Judge Anthony A. Mozingo to serve fifteen (15) years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections for each of his two convictions for child molestation. Last week, Williams was found guilty by a Pearl River County jury of two counts of child molestation and was allowed to remain on bond under house arrest conditions pending sentencing. A motion for new trial and for a bond pending appeal has been filed by Williams. Today, after the sentence was imposed, a hearing on those two motions was held. The Court announced its’ intentions to rule on the motions within fifteen (15) days. Williams was allowed to remain on the same bond with the same house arrest restrictions pending the ruling on the two motions and is required to register as a sex offender at his address in Poplarville.
