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....

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?
