Cases worked by convicted deputy to be dropped

VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Warren County authorities say they'll have to drop numerous criminal cases investigated by a deputy who has been convicted of incest.

A jury convicted 40-year-old former Warren County Deputy London Williams on Nov. 2.

Assistant District Attorney Dewey Arthur said prosecutors aren't yet sure how many cases have been compromised due to Williams' involvement, but some of them involve violent crimes, including armed robbery.

Williams faces up to 10 years in prison when sentenced Friday.

The Vicksburg Post reported that Williams had been an investigator with the sheriff's department from January 2008 until June.
