120 Day Jail Sentence For Man Who Forced 9-Year-Old To Perform Sex Acts

A Johnston County man who allegedly forced his nine-year-old daughter to perform sex acts will spend only 120 days in jail for the unthinkable crime. Michael Billy Jack Williams of Benson was arrested last October. The alleged offenses happened in July 2006, and came to light three months later when the victim confided in her mother. The 30-year-old man was originally charged with first degree sex offense and taking indecent liberties with a child. Under a plea, Williams was convicted of taking indecent liberties and the first-degree sex offense charge was dropped. Williams was sentenced to 16 to 20 months in prison, but under a split-sentence was only ordered to spend 4 months in jail before he is released. Afterwards he will be on probation for 5 years.
