Lee County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a parolee Tuesday for multiple counts of child abuse, including one described as “torture”.

On December 14, Lee County deputies were dispatched to County Road 506 in Shannon after deputies received a call of concern for children in the home.

Jeremy Lane Williams was taken into custody on several active warrants once deputies arrived on scene.

Lee County Child Protection Services also responded after several small children were located in the home with “very serious injuries.”

Williams, 29, of Shannon, is charged with four counts of felony physical child abuse and one count of aggravated assault domestic violence. One of the abuse charges falls under a torture statute, investigators say.

The children were immediately taken to a medical facility for treatment and are now recovering.

At the time of his arrest, Williams was on parole with the MDoC for multiple prior felony convictions, including shooting into a dwelling.

His bond is $850,000 on the child abuse charges and $250,000 on the aggravated domestic violence charge.
