MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A Montgomery County grand jury returned a no bill in a Montgomery police officer's case, according to his attorney.

Morris Leon Williams Jr. was charged with second-degree sodomy in 2016.

According to Williams' attorney Richard White, the case was presented to a Montgomery County grand jury in May, and the grand jury returned a no bill.

White says the allegations made against Williams were "false and made without a thorough look at all the evidence."

According to Capt. Regina Duckett, Williams remains on administrative leave with the Montgomery Police Department.

Williams was charged after MPD began an investigation with the One Place Family Justice Center and Sexual Assault Response Team (SART/SANE). Officials with the center said it had received allegations of a sexual assault involving an on-duty officer.
