A routine traffic stop landed a convicted sex offender back behind bars, accused of sexual assault. The Logan County Sheriff's Office said Cameron Williams could face several more charges.

The 14-year-old victim was not injured after the alleged sexual assault. She still needed to meet with a forensic interviewer that would allow investigators to know more about what allegedly happened Saturday night.

Blowing through the town of Luther Sunday afternoon, going about 70 miles an hour in a 55 zone, was cause enough for the officer to pull over Cameron Williams.

But when his license read ‘sex offender' and the cop saw three young women in the car, there was cause for concern.

“During that traffic stop a 14-year-old female disclosed that she's been sexually assaulted overnight,” said Chief Deputy Richard Stephens, Logan County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said the three girls in the car knew Williams and actually were the ones who arranged the weekend get together,

“They called him specifically because he could provide transportation and a method for them to be together,” said Chief Deputy Stephens.

Authorities said he's facing a charge of rape by instrumentation.

According to the Department of Corrections, Williams was arrested in 2011 for having sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend. At the time he was 25 years old. Williams was ordered 10 years of probation.

Until this weekend, his probation officer said he's been in compliance with his probation rules.

“I spoke with his probation officer this morning to alert them to the situation and he made a home visit just last week,” said Chief Deputy Stephens.

Stephens said repeat offense by a sex offender is not uncommon.

“Recidivism among sex offenders is high. Studies have shown that people who like younger and younger victims as their taste, those are the people who are much harder to cure,” said Chief Deputy Stephens.

Deputies said Williams has not cooperated with investigators, making threats and attempting to assault them.

He could be looking at additional charges added to his rape charge.

Williams is being held without bond at the Logan County Detention Center.

He's scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
