BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WALA) - Bay Minette Police said Sammy Williams, 28, allegedly raped girl under the age of 12 on September 27, 2013.
Authorities said Williams was arrested and put in jail under a $25,000 bond
Just days later, investigators say Williams was arrested again for showing up at the home of the victim while he was drunk.
Although Williams once again bonded out on charges of public intoxication and trespassing, Sgt. Ray Dixon said the arrest was enough to issue another warrant.
"He had a bond stipulation that he would have no contact with the victims. When he went back to the residence he violated the condition of the bond and the Distric Attorney filed to have it revoked," said Sgt. Dixon.
Authorities said the crime was allegedly committed while Williams was staying with the alleged victim at a home on Hoyle Avenue.
Investigators found and arrested Williams Friday, October 11 for breaking the conditions of his bond.
Dixon says Williams isn't the only one in his immediate family getting jail time because of this case. He said Williams' father Sammie Johnson is also behind bars and accused of harassing the alleged victim and her mother.
"When the father showed up and harassed the victim's mother, she filed a report and he was shortly before Sammy Williams was picked up," Sgt. Dixon said.
Dixon says the alleged victim is receiving medical treatment and authorities are just glad to put an end to the situation for now.
"Now that Williams and his father are behind bars and they can't go back to the victim's home, the family should have some peace and quiet now," said Sgt. Dixon.
Williams is being charged with first-degree rape, trespassing and public intoxication and being held currently under no bond.
His father is charged with harassment and domestic violence. He's being held in Baldwin County jail under $1,250 bond.
