Man Accused of Raping Special Needs Woman
(Memphis) After a year on the run an accused rapist is behind bars after a Memphis woman says he raped her special needs sister.
William Scott, also known as Willie Sally was arrested in a traffic stop in Nashville and brought back to Memphis on charges he raped a woman with Down’s syndrome.
“It`s been awful ever since everything happened. Really awful,” said the victim’s sister.
Scott is accused of going into this apartment on Cane Meadow Circle and raping a thirty year old woman with Down`s syndrome.
Her sister says she has the mental capacity of a 5-year-old.
“She really didn`t say anything she just kind of shut down. Shut down completely. It was hard you know,” said the victim’s sister.
The victim’s sister says she returned home and found her deep freezer blocking the front door.
She realized something wasn’t right, and once she got inside claims to have seen Scott naked having sex with her special needs sister.
“Since everything happened it`s just basically taken a turn for the worst as far as family, and it really just messed everything up,” said the sister.
Scott got away through a back gate and was on the run for over a year.
“I`m glad he was caught of course, but just the emotional pain and turmoil we`ve gone through. I mean I had to move and we suffered from that. We`re still going through it to this day,” said the victim’s sister.
Scott lived a few doors down from the alleged victim who has since moved.
He’s being held on $100,000 bail.
