A 26-year-old Green Hill man was, on Thursday, jailed for 15 years for unlawful sexual intercourse with an 8-year-old girl.
Justice Brian Cottle handed down the sentence on Kawanie Williams, who was convicted 7-2 by a nine-member mixed jury on Nov. 23, after a full trial.
Williams committed the crime when he was 19 years old.
The facts of the case, as read by the judge, are that on Nov. 16, 2013, the “academically slow” child, as she usually did, went to Williams’ home so his sister could help her with her school work.
At one point while the child was at the house, Williams’ sister went into a bedroom for a nap, leaving the child alone in the living room.
