— A registered sex offender in Goldsboro has been charged with statutory rape after he allegedly had sex with a teenager.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office arrested Matthew Gordon Williams, 28, of 3630 Stevens Mill Road, after they received a report Tuesday about a sexual assault.

Authorities did not provide details about the case Wednesday, but the charge specifically references the statutory rape of a 13-, 14- or 15-year-old victim.

Williams was jailed under a $750,000 secured bond.

According to North Carolina's sex offender registry, Williams served more than a year in prison after a 2009 conviction on a charge of indecent liberties with a minor.

    You know even with castration, some of these individuals can't get the thoughts and urges out of their heads. If they feel the need to keep GITMO open, then send these scum there. A little sun and torture would do them some good.

    This fine specimen should be sent to Dorthea Dix. Oh, I forgot, we would rather have a city park for these sec offenders to roam around in.

    Sounds like it's time for the Ludovico Technique! Maybe we just need to start sending scum like this to North Korea. Drop them at the DMZ at night and wish them luck!

    Seems as though the rehabilitation system is working well doesn't it What makes you think it has ever worked? Locking someone up for a long with no one to associate with and talk to but other criminals is going to make them a better person? That's not logical. Not advocating softer treatment, but to expect prison to rehabilitate someone is wishful thinking. You are a product of the books you read and the people you associate with...
