We can't tell you her name but she was able to tell a jury about what happened to her. And her determination to recount some of the most incredible savagery ever heard in a courtroom is testimony to her courage and her desire to see justice done.
The recall of a Columbia University student that unfolded in a New York City hall of justice on Monday was almost too hard to hear. The 24-year-old victim sat in the witness box with her jaw clenched and her mind focused, as she retold the unimaginable ordeal she claims she suffered at the hands of 31-year-old Robert Williams (top left).
The ex-con stared straight ahead as his 24-year-old accuser poured out her story of a 19-hour rape and torture session, a day-long siege so brutal she begged her attacker to kill her.
It happened on April 13, 2007 when Williams allegedly burst into her New York City apartment.
He's accused of forcing her to have oral sex and raping her seven times during that ordeal, but that wasn't the worst of it.
He allegedly scalded her with boiling water from a kettle, forced her to take massive doses of painkillers, used a knife to mutilate her face and slice her eyelids and ordered her to gouge out her own eyes using the same blade.
When she refused, cops say he threw bleach into her face in an attempt to blind her.
"I was burning all over," the witness related in terms so vivid many jury members had to look away. "He threw the rest of the bleach into my face, but I was able to close my eyes in time. I was breathing it in. My lungs were burning."

Yes, but that's too good for this guy.
Have somebody do to him what he did to her.
"An eye for an eye" seems about right here.
When -he- screams to be killed, don't. Let him rot somewhere.
Wow. A quick death seems like too easy of a punishment for this nutjob.
But not (yet?) convicted.
I’d use a woodchipper.
We're not told in the article ... but ... was she .. and by God, that girl is courageous ..., white?
This story makes me want to feed him into a lunchmeat slicer, feet first. Maybe one slice every few minutes. Let it last at least as long as what he did to her.
Yeah... I was thinking maybe a lunchmeat slicer, but the same idea.
Oh, and he should have bleach and boiling water pouring over him while being sliced (or chipped) up. Just for accuracy.
Forced myself, but I read it.
There aren’t words for ...
That son of a bitch.
He wasn't an EX-con. He was a convicted criminal who was let go to continue to commit more heinous crimes.
Nothing EX about him.

Is evil the result of human choice or manufactured by social circumstances? Professor Philip Zimbardo, known for his infamous Stanford Prison Experiment of 1971, opted for the latter explanation at a recent CATO book forum.
Good point—he never retired.
I read about this case the other day. How this woman lived is beyond me.
death aint good enough....
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Robert Williams also known as William Roberts
Police say Roberts is a career criminal who often frequented homeless shelters in the area.
Rumours abound that Vlad also ate the flesh, and drank the blood of his enemies, often holding dinner parties next to the freshly impaled. He was very proud of his work, and anyone who showed disdain while looking upon the thousands of putrefying corpses would soon suffer the same fate. Vlad liked to arrange the impaled in circular patterns, the length of the stakes determined by the victim's rank; this way, wealthy, or powerful opponents would plainly see they were not above the law. Impalements were carried out in a variety of ways, During his reign, Vlad Dracula also had people decapitated, had their eyes gouged out, had them skinned alive, boiled, burnt, dismembered, eviscerated, or sometimes just physically disfigured for his own amusement. In one particular incident, Turkish ambassadors who had refused to remove their Phrygian caps in his presence were asked why they insulted him in such a manner. When they replied it was because their hats had to remain on their heads according to custom, he graciously honored their tradition by ordering their hats permanently nailed to their heads, never to be removed again.
After all, they are his brothers...
He’s one of the disadvantaged who’s ancestors came over on a slave ship, now he’s getting even? Poor, poor thing. sarc! And the city planner dreamers want these people moved into our neighborhoods from their crime infested areas?
A presumed-innocent would need a pardon?
“We’re not told in the article ... but ... was she .. and by God, that girl is courageous ..., white?”
Who cares what color she is?
What I’d do to this vermin would make an Apache cringe....
Human sexuality is one of the most under rated forces of nature. Wired in the wrong way, as in this horrifying story, it is the root of so much evil in this world.
This person needs to be removed from existence as soon as possible.
To put a finer point on this, if a white man did this to my daughter I would want to destroy him just as much. And there are plenty of white serial killers, etc. Good and Evil are color blind.
This professor Zimbardo is full of prumes, right up to his brown eyes. Look at the african countries who prey on the weaker countries, look at zimbawee....their gangster in charge blaming the West for his starving citizens, while his wife spends $400.00 per pair of shoes,’cause her feet are so narrow, then they dine on whatever...while their countrymen starve. Can we expect much more from some of our citizens with the same blood? I’m sick of our country cow-towing to this type of “injustice”. For the next few years we’ll be taking care of this evil speciman of human excretemtn with good medical, eye, dental, lodging and meals.
What difference does that make?
That is hogwash. Sexuality is a way of reporduction, just like the rest of the animal kingdom What this person did and probably has done is evil, pure and simple for the “fun” of it.
If some judge lets this lowlife out, let’s chip in — get him an apartment in the judges neighborhood.
Someone call Sharpton and register some outrage on HIS ass...
Well Keith, I was never racist before this year. You have no way of knowing if that is a true statement or not, but ..
The Obama campaign and entourage made me more of a racist than not.
I think I perceive trouble in our nation ... it is primarily political, but it will be promoted as racist ... and I take offense at being called something I'm not.
So, should this all shake out the way I think it will ... I'm practicing to be a racist.
And the animal in this article is black.
“He will probably get life in prison.”
How does he not get death?
I cannot imagine a liberal who thinks a quiet sleep to death is too horrible for this man, while the woman he tried to kill in such a horrific manner literally lives with the scars.
Hang him. And if there is a theoretical biological basis for evil, everyone within 2 degrees of kinship gets sterilized, too.
Feed him to a pack of hungry and pissed off wolves.
Very slowly. Very very slowly.
If this man's victim was white, will he be charged with a hate crime? Of course he won't, which shows the insanity of political correctness, and somehow seems to say that a black man doing such things to a white woman isn't as bad as a white man doing the same thing to a black woman (or a black man, for that matter). If he did it to a black woman, he should be charged with a hate crime. If a white man did it to a white woman, he should be charged with a hate crime. All crimes of this type of cruelty and viciousness are either hate crimes, or they aren't. The color of the perp and victim should have nothing to do with it, of that, I agree. All crimes of this nature display a form of hate, and it should be understood automatically, not selectively applied based on the race of the perp and the race of the victim. Hate crimes laws are stupid, because all crimes of this cruel nature involve hate. Selectively applying "hate" to one race while not applying it to another race is just stupid.
Chainsaw neuter then death slow.
Chainsaw neuter then death slow.
I prefer the immortal words of Marcellus Wallace:
“Im gonna get a couple of hard pipe hittin MoF*****s, to work over homes here with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch.”
Forget hate crime. Rape is the worst crime there is. Worse than murder. It should be death. I’ve written to state legislators pleading the same.
I agree about the death penalty. This story breaks my heart.
Not a nutjob: Pure Evil.
It’s odd you’d put you political views as far as race onto this situation.
But let me ask you this.
In your world would what this woman suffered be ok if the perp was white?
This is happening in New York. That state prides itself on not applying the “barbaric” death penalty. The worst this person faces is life in prison. I don’t know if NY has a “without parole” condition for a Life sentence, but if they do, I’m sure someone will overturn that in NY, too.
Wake up, son ... we're both in the same world.
Posing academic questions is what you did in college .. your preliminary decisions were made then.
All thought proceses are polarized, and we develop the grey areas in order to make sense of polarized extremes .. (No black without white, up without down, in with no out, etc.)
The grey areas grow from interacting and experiencing the tangible world.
Black and white decisions (not race, but definitive) must be made for man to develop. (Is there a right? A wrong? .... who says so?)
So let me ask you .... who made the decision for me to conclude the way I did?
Did I make that decision with no input?
Did the POS guilty of this atrocity inject itself into the thought processes of people trying not to be racist?
Why did he choose a white woman? ... and please ... don't attempt to suggest the POS didn't "choose" ... it most certainly DID.
