A person with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity, tells The Associated Press that the delay was partly
because of travel difficulties. Williams lives in South Carolina.
Another person with knowledge of the case told the AP on
Thursday that Williams would plead guilty to aggravated assault.
That would carry a minimum 18-month sentence because a gun was involved.
Both sides are prohibited from speaking about the case under terms of a gag order imposed by Coleman.
