This is a travesty!! Joe Williams is a very honest, decent,god fearing, family man. This woman is out for money and so is her boyfriend. As a woman, if I was in the situation she is claiming Joe put her in, I would have either called 911, or started screaming to get attention from my neighbors. She lived in an Apt, so there would have been other people around. But instead her and her boyfriend wait a year before they file a police report leaving no hope of any physical evidence being left to dispel her story. I hope when Joe is found not guilty he files slander suit against both of these people. Because that is all this is, Slander. It is a shame that the Iowa legal system even brought this to trial. It is a pure and simple case of he said / she said. There is no witnesses or evidence to back her up, but the legal system still felt compelled to put this before a jury. I'm sure Joe is feeling the same way Kobe Bryant felt when he was falsely accused. Good Luck Joe, Keep your faith and your head held high. We all know you are an innocent man.

It's a shame this happened again. This same incident happened to me at my apartment back in 1996. I thought Joe was a very nice guy so I let him in my apartment one evening when he showed up with hot chocolate after have a friendship with him for about a year. Once inside I stepped away for a few moments only find him naked and fondling himself moments later. I started crying so he left. I only blamed myself for letting him in. I don't doubt that this actually happened to this girl sine it sounds exactly like what happened in my situation but don't know if I agree about her filing charges. I found out later that he had been in a relationship with another girl for a long time. Now I think he is a creap!
