FREDERICK, MD – This morning in Frederick County Circuit Court, Willian Alexander Reyes-Reyes, age 29, of Frederick was sentenced to twenty years suspend all but ten years in the Division of Corrections for 2nd Degree Rape. In December 2021, a Frederick jury found Reyes-Reyes guilty of 2nd degree rape, 3rd degree sex offense, and 2nd degree assault. In sentencing, charges of 3rd degree sex offense and 2nd degree assault merge with 2nd degree rape. Upon release, Judge Theresa Adams ordered that Reyes-Reyes serve five years of supervised probation, register as a Tier-3 sex offender, have no contact with the victim or females under age 16, submit to the COMET program, and follow all recommendations by the court and probation agent.
State’s Attorney Charlie Smith commented, “The sentence was the maximum under the sentencing guidelines, and he deserved it. Frederick is very fortunate to have an SVU prosecution team who aggressively seeks justice for these victims.”
On October 11, 2019, officers with the Frederick Police Department responded to an apartment on Waverly Drive in Frederick. Officers spoke with an adult female who advised her 14-year-old daughter said she was raped the day prior, October 10, 2019. Investigators learned that the victim had been hanging out with a group of friends in the woods behind the Elmwood Terrace Apartments on the evening of October 10th. The defendant, who was known to the victim, was also with the group. When the victim went to leave the group and go home, the Defendant insisted upon walking her home. Once away from the group, he told her he was lost and told her to sit down while he tried to figure out where they were. As soon as she sat down, he attacked her.
The SVU Prosecution team consisted of Chief Assistant State’s Attorney Tammy Leache, Investigator Jimmy Simms, Victim Witness Coordinators Beth Hubble and Kim Murdock, and Legal Associate Melanie Sokolovich.
