According to the prosecutors, the accused had reportedly put a camera in a bathroom that children "sometimes use on their own."
Investigators have also said that Williams admitted for hiding the camera "four or five times before" too.
The accused's role at the Southwest Airlines is not clear yet.
Reports state that Williams, as of July 23, was booked into King County Jail and appeared before a judge. His bail was reportedly set at $90,000.
If Williams is released from prison under any circumstances, he will not be allowed to have any contact with children.
The carrier provided a statement to KIRO saying, "We will work with the appropriate authorities as they investigate an accusation that involves one of our Seattle Employees. We do not have additional details to provide."
Williams, besides working for Southwest Airlines, also volunteers at the Chehalis Centralia Railroad and Museum.
