Wake man, 20, accused of statutory rape of 15-year-old girl

From staff reportsJanuary 6, 2014 

— A 20-year-old Wake County man faces three counts of statutory rape and other charges, all of them involving a 15-year-old girl whom police charge he brought into his home at least one time.

Wake County sheriff’s deputies charged Christopher Lee Williams of 1305 Yakimas Road – a Raleigh address but is in the southeastern part of the county.

In arrest warrants, deputies charged that the incidents that led to the statutory rape charges happened between Oct. 2 and last Thursday.

One warrant accused Williams of taking indecent liberties with a child during the same period, and it also charged that he contributed to the delinquency of a minor on Jan. 2 because he “caused, encourage[d] and aid[ed]” the girl to be in his house.

A magistrate set Williams’ bail at $300,000, and he was being held in lieu of that for a court appearance Monday.
