Man who sodomized hotel employee found guiltyPublished 10:52pm Friday, March 8, 2013
Dallas County jurors in the case of a man who sodomized a worker at the Jameson Inn two years ago, found the suspect guilty of sexual misconduct.
Assistant District Attorneys Lloria James and Jimmy Thomas prosecuted the case against 33-year-old Dewayne Williams of Dainesville in Lawrence County.
Williams was accused of sexually assaulting a man who worked at the Jameson Inn in 2010. The victim reported that when the suspect came to the front desk and said he was having trouble with his cable television, the victim then went to his room to help.
The victim then returned to the main front desk to check on the fax machine when Williams, “came behind the counter and followed him into the office,” the police incident report said. “Once inside the office, the subject forced him into the bathroom and began choking the victim.”
After the victim was sexually assaulted, he informed the Selma Police Department.
District Attorney Michael Jackson said the jury deliberated on Thursday night for about an hour before finding Williams guilty and then Circuit Judge Marvin Wiggins ordered a pre-sentence investigation and report — sentencing is set for April 24.
Jackson said he and his office would continue to, “keep cracking down on these sexual predators.”
