Teenager Raped At Knifepoint

FAST FACTS:
13-year-old accused 48-year-old man of rape
Teen was forced into abandoned home when man pulled knife
Will Williams faces aggravated kidnapping and rape in connection with the crime

(North Memphis, 5/18/09)

Behind the walls of a vacant home in North Memphis is where 48-year-old Will Williams is accused of raping a 13-year-old boy.

"it's horrible, terrifying," exclaimed Laura Dunlap who lives right next door to the crime scene. "

"I gotta be afraid to walk to school every morning. I gotta be careful where I'm going, so yeah it is scary."

The 14-year-old girls says it's especially scary considering how police say Williams targeted the teenage boy.

According to an affidavit, the boy was sitting on his own porch Friday when Williams walked up the alley and asked the boy to come talk to him.

When the teenager got close, the documents show Williams pulled a knife, took the boy to an abandoned home in the 700 block of North Manassas and forced him to perform oral sex and other acts.

No one answered at the boarding home on Jackson Williams listed as his address. We checked his rap sheet and found this isn't his first brush with the law. Williams has faced trespassing, drug and burglary charges.

But it's this latest charge against him that's got Travis Williams, a father of five, fuming.

"If I catch someone like that doing something to a child I'd rather not say it on camera but it wouldn't be nice on his behalf."

Empty liquor bottles, sheets and clothes are scattered in and around the vacant home on Manassas that sits wide open.

It's as if it's an open invitation for others to prey on the kids riding their bikes in the alley and use the home as a shelter for crime.

"It needs to go," says Laura Dunlap. "Because bad things happen there and I don't want to be living right next door to it ."

Dunlap and her father say they've contacted city officials about the vacant home. We weren't able to verify that.

What we have been told by Memphis Police is that the number of rapes are down nearly 32 percent since this time last year.

Williams is scheduled to be in court in early June on the aggravated rape and kidnapping charges against him.

This man is the perfect example of WHY the Sex-offender registry was started to begin with., Now the sex-offender registry is so diluted with 100 of thousand of people that are NOT a risk, examples are young boyfriend/ girlfriend who thought or were in love, the uncle that inappropriately touched his niece on the boob while he was drunk ( Wrong YES) but hardly a sex offense, mooners, streaking, or the middle schooler that pinched someone on the rear end, these are also put on the failed registry, ruining young men and womenÂ’s life forever while these sick people molest many victims and just get house arrest and go on about their useless life.
There is a huge difference between stealing a newspaper and robbing a bank, both crimes are considered theft but both are differentiated by law and society.
Are Americans aware that the current laws that label someone as a Sex Offender in the U.S do not differentiate? Whether you are accused of teenage consensual sex, urinating in public, mooning or streaking, pinching or touching someone or being a serial rapist upon your return to society, conviction and sentence will be the same.
The Registries need to be returned to their original intent, to list only the most dangerous, untreatable and repeat offenders.
And this man that raped the young child should never see the light of day!

i personally think it worst crime you could commit. people like this should get the death penalty or life in prison with no parole.

What confuses me about this issue is,Gays claim Gay people don't commit crimes like us bad nasty ole straight folks,A 48 year old man raping a 13 year old boy wouldn't the 48 year old man be a Gay ?? There are so many other cases like this it would take year to look into each case.

that would be ignorant of a gay or heterosexual to be stereotype that all gays do or dont do things like this. there are evil and good people on both sides of the fence.

Yep thats correct,you forgot he has to register as sex offender lol.Who ever came up with that program should be shot.I say first offense against a child you get life in prison,murder a child automatic death sentence,Speedy execution no 50 years on death row.

At least we can all breathe easy in knowing he's not an illegal immigrant, right? Right?

The great news is we have a legal system that will ensure he is giving at least one or two weeks behind bars and then we will have him out so that he can keep doing these things.

What freaking difference does it make if the man is gay or straight, For God sake he raped a child, Who gives a flying flip of the sexual gender he chooses. You need to get with the topic, Its about a child being raped. Its not about if you are straight or gay. Regardless he should be turned over to the childs parents for punishment and then if its anything left of him they can turn him over to the police.
