Donny Ray Williams, a former congressional aide and Obama staffer was spared jail time last Friday April 4th after he pleaded guilty to drugging and sexually assaulting two women, including a former intern. He was spared jail time because sometime in 2013, someone attacked him with acid that left him disfigured for life. Guess the court figured he had received enough punishment because many believe the acid attack was a pay back for the rapes, though he claims the boyfriend of a woman he was dating did it to him.
According to reports, Donny Ray Williams, who was once a staffer for the Senate Homeland Security subcommittee, slipped Ambien into the drink of an intern in 2010 before having sex with her while she lay unconscious. That same year, he had sex with a woman too inebriated to give her consent, prosecutors say.
Despite admitting his guilt in December, D.C. prosecutors on Friday asked that Williams be spared prison time because he is himself the victim of a crime – the effects of which will mar the remainder of his life, Washington Post reports.
