The man police dubbed the North Dade Rapist could spend the rest of his life in prison


Sedrick Williams

A jury Wednesday convicted Sedrick Williams of raping a 21-year-old college student. He was found guilty of two counts of armed sexual battery and one count of armed burglary with an assault.

Williams is accused of raping five other women and girls in 2002 and 2003. He has yet to be tried for the other attacks.

Police said Williams terrorized north Miami-Dade County for nearly a year.

He was usually armed with a handgun, according to police. Investigators said he would typically enter homes through a window in the early morning hours. Police said Williams' victims were as young as 7 years old.

Police said he is linked to at least six rapes through DNA.

Williams, who has 21 prior convictions, is scheduled to be sentenced next month. His lawyer said Williams would appeal.
