Today, Roderick Williams was sentenced to Life for the 1998 sexual assault of a minor in Mobile County. The defendant entered a Blind Plea to Rape 1st earlier this year. This case is part of the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) and is the second conviction in Mobile County related to this program. SAKI is a joint community response that helps ensure a resolution to sexual assault cases by the implementation of best practices, comprehensive reform, and a victim-centered approach. This initiative to process backlogged rape kits helped identify Williams as the perpetrator.
