FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida woman has been accused of molesting her own children.

“I’ve been an attorney for a long time — I’m now a judge,” said a judge in bond court. “You have a lot of cases of this type. This is by far one of the worst allegations that I have ever seen in my career.”

Amber Williams appeared in bond court, Thursday, facing two counts of molesting a child under the age of 12 and three counts of child neglect.

Williams is now being held without bond after police said she was involved in the sexual abuse of her children — ages 10, 7 and 4 years old.

A neighbor — who wanted her identity hidden — said she is still shocked by the allegations. “From my well being and being around, I would never think that,” she said. “They never said anything, they was always healthy and well taken care of as well. They was never hungry, played outside, enjoyed life.”

Child Protective Services began looking into the family after the children were placed into foster care in 2015.

During the investigation, the oldest child handed over a diary detailing the abuse, which she said occurred in their Fort Lauderdale home, along Northwest 14th Avenue and 18th Court.

Williams has since been banned from making any contact with the children.
