Trial of alleged child rapist on track to start next Monday

After numerous continuances, the trial of the man alleged to have raped a 14-year-old girl, a Mt. Baker Middle School student, on Oct. 9, 2018 in his Auburn apartment is on track to start next week.

A spokesperson for the King County Prosecutor’s Office said that as of Monday afternoon at least, Ronald Williams’ trial is scheduled to start at 9 a.m., Oct. 14 in courtroom GA at the Regional Justice Center in Kent.

Williams is up against a charge of second-degree rape, which is a class A felony.

At first, the KCPO filed charges of third-degree rape of a child, first-degree kidnapping and second-degree assault against Williams, but it later dropped the kidnapping and assault charges, leaving him up against the single charge.
