The indictment is sealed-- but sources who spoke to NEWS 7-- have shed some background.
They say Williams did NOT tape the conversation but played it in front of others and physically confronted one of the callers discussing his alleged affair.
The case eventually ended in court-- with the judge taking the case under advisement-- if Williams agreed to pay costs and get counseling. END SU

Virginia Republicans have successfully defended two House seats tonight, and picked up a third in Prince William County-- but they lost a crucial battle in court.
Virginia's Supreme Court voted six to one NOT to interfere with the state electoral board's plans to certify votes Friday from today's special elections in three House districts.
That means the three Republicans who won seats today can't take their seats tomorrow when the 1998 General Assembly convenes-- so the G-O-P may be outnumbered in the votes to decide the House leadership.
