Bail was set at $50,000 Wednesday for a former Schaumburg High School teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student in 2001, police said.

Ronald L. Williams, 53, of Barrington, faces a charge of criminal sexual assault stemming from the allegations that surfaced in June, when the accuser contacted Schaumburg police, authorities said. The charge is a Class 1 felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison, if Williams is found guilty.

According to police, the assault took place at Schaumburg High School while Williams was in a position of authority over the student and was part of an ongoing relationship.

… Attorney Matt Fakhoury said the relationship was consensual and he expects his client to be cleared of wrongdoing.

“We don’t feel these charges are justified … the court will be fair and his innocence will be justified,” he said.
