A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week for a former Fort George G. Meade youth counselor accused of sexually abusing two boys.

Anthony Dennis Williams II is scheduled to appear before a judge at 1 p.m. Nov. 27 in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

The 27-year-old Severn man has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor. He is accused of abusing two boys in 2010 and 2011, when he worked at the Fort Meade Youth Center running a program called Passport to Manhood.

Williams left his job there in 2012.

Williams allegedly shared explicit text messages with boys and brought two of them to an attic, where he allegedly inappropriately touched one boy and allegedly had sex with another, authorities said in a criminal complaint.

The Fort Meade Youth Center serves the families of service members and civilian Department of Defense employees. It hosts after-school programs for children in grades six through eight and programs for children ages 3 to 18 and their families at other times.

Officials have asked anyone with information about Williams to contact the FBI at 410-265-8080 or Fort Meade at 866-454-9414.

Williams remains in federal custody.
