NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - A school board member in Delaware is facing felony charges that he sexually abused at least three juvenile victims.

New Castle County Police said Saturday they charged 41-year-old Ronnie Williams with 19 felonies. Investigators believe there may be more victims who haven't been identified.

Williams is a member of the board of education in the Colonial School District.  A district spokeswoman said counselors will be available Monday to talk to students who want to discuss the case.

A phone message left for Williams at a listed number in New Castle wasn't returned.
