A Colorado family is outraged after two of six men who gang-raped a 13-year-old girl were only sentenced to probation.
Tommy Williams, 20, and Clarence Williams, 19, were both sentenced on Tuesday to a minimum of 10 years of sex offender intensive supervised probation, with a maximum of life probation, reported KKTV.
They are part of a group, some of whom are cousins or brothers, identified as Jacolby Williams, Tyron Williams, James Williams, and an unnamed juvenile, who assaulted the girl in December 2016.
There was six of them and they gang-raped my granddaughter,’ the girl’s grandfather yelled in court according to KKTV.
The girl told authorities that one of the suspects, whom she knew, invited her to the apartment to play video games.
She said she went to the apartment with some female friends and, when she went to use the bathroom, the friends left.
According to court documents, two of the men reportedly pulled her out of the bathroom and into a bedroom where the other suspects were waiting.
At a sentencing for some of the other suspects in February, the teen’s grandmother said her granddaughter was rotated around the bed ‘like a hand on a clock’ during the rape.
KKTV reported that, prior to the sentencing, he apologized to the victim and her family, saying: ‘If I knew she was underage, it wouldn’t have happened in the first place.’
