On Tuesday Tommy Williams, 20, and Clarence Williams, 19, were each sentenced to serve an “intensive supervised probation,” after being accused of gang-raping a 13-year-old girl with their brothers and cousins.
KKTV reported, that at least 10 years of sex offender intensive supervised probation, with a maximum of life on probation, was the two sexual predators’ fate. Needless to say the victim’s family is outraged.
The incident occurred in Colorado Springs inside the Stonebrook Terrace apartment complex backing in December of 2016. Both Tommy and Clarence are just two of the six suspects accused of the rape. The young girl’s grandfather, shocked at the verdict, told KKTV, “There was six of them and they gang-raped my granddaughter.”
The Gazette stated all six were cousins or brothers and identified as Jacolby Williams, Tyron Williams, James Williams, and a juvenile, in addition to Tommy and Clarence.
Via Fox News: The victim told police she knew one of the men, and he invited her into the apartment to play video games. The 13-year-old said she went to the home with some female friends, but they left when she went to the bathroom.
Arrest records, KKTV reported, state that two of the men then pulled the teen from the bathroom and forced her into a bedroom where the other four suspects were waiting.
The victim’s grandmother said at a sentencing in February that her granddaughter was passed around the group of men “like a hand on a clock” during the attack. She added in court Tuesday that the 13-year-old may never be able to have children.
In January 2017, Tyron Williams was also sentenced to 10 years to life of sex offender intense supervised probation. Before his sentencing, he apologized to the victim and her family, and reportedly said that “If I knew she was underage, it wouldn’t have happened in the first place.”
In August 2016 James Williams received a five year probation sentence, and reportedly the unidentified juvenile has an impending court date; while Jacolby Williams’ trial took place on March 5; yet no reports of what occurred during this trial were given to the press.
