Macon Man Gets 66-Year Sentence | News
A Macon man was sentenced to 66 years in prison without parole after being accused of attacking two women in the same night and trying to rape one.
Friday in Bibb County Superior Court, 48-year-old Traypanilla Williams was convicted of kidnapping, criminal attempt to commit rape and two counts of battery.
That's according to Bibb County assistant district attorney Nancy Scott Malcor.
He was convicted of attacking two women on Aug. 5, 2011 near Tattnall Square Park and the Alexander II School.
One 21-year-old woman told police she was pulled under the railroad bridge at Oglethorpe and Shamrock Streets and beaten and pepper-sprayed by a man.
Police arrested Williams after they found him with a can of pepper spray and a butcher knife.
Malcor said five different women testified during Williams' trial this week that he'd assaulted them during the past 26 years -- even though he was in prison for 25 of those years.
He was released from prison just four months before the August 2011 assaults, she said.
Williams was sentenced by Judge Howard Simms, who also revoked Williams' probation on a previous conviction for aggravated sodomy.
