Williamsburg, VA (WTKR) -- Kimberlyn Williams feels unsafe in her own home because of her 12-year-old son. She says he's so dangerous that she is prepared to face jail time to keep him out of the house, to not only protect herself, but her two younger children.
"I am his mother and I do love him, but he`s dangerous. I've been hit, bit, kicked. He has threatened to stab children at school, to kill them. He has these outbursts," Williams says.
Williams says her son is now at a behavioral center. He was put there after Williams called police last week because of what she says she witnessed between her son and four-year-old daughter.
"When I went in, I found him exposing himself to her and trying to coerce her to touch him," Williams says.
Williams says that was the final straw after years of violent and inappropriate behavior, and years of trying to get him the help he needs.
"It`s not a case of us not trying to get him help. This is not an isolated incident. It's been a gauntlet of doctors and medications and diagnoses," Williams said.
Her son is set to be released Thursday, February 5th, but Williams does not want to bring him home.
"If I do not show up to get him, I will face criminal charges or child abandonment," Williams says.
Williams says Child Protective Services told her if she refuses to take him, her son would be placed in a 24-hour supervision residential facility — something she's wanted all along. She says it would take police arresting her to get her wish.
"I want something to get done. I don`t want it to be you take this one and you risk your other children's health and safety or you go to jail. There has to be a better way," Williams says.
To get her son the help he needs, Williams says she's prepared to face the consequences.
"Nobody wants to talk about this. It`s something we would certainly consider a private family issue, but along those lines maybe it can help other people," Williams says.
