Home invader gets 93-plus years in prison

Published: Tue, February 22, 2011 @ 3:15 p.m.


Lexter Williams, the fugitive home-invader captured in Philadelphia, didn’t do himself any favors by fleeing.

Williams drew a 93 1/2 year prison term this afternoon from Judge Maureen A. Sweeney of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Williams, 30, of Kendis Circle, fled from electronically-monitored house arrest on Nov. 18, just before he was to be sentenced for the Jan. 22, 2009, armed home invasion in the 100 block of Livingston Street.

Judge Sweeney issued a bench warrant for his arrest after he failed to appear for his scheduled Nov. 22 sentencing, and he was captured in Philadelphia late last month and returned to Youngstown.

Williams had pleaded guilty in October to three counts of aggravated robbery, four counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated burglary and one count of gross sexual imposition with firearm specifications and to being a felon with a gun.

Williams was initially charged with rape, but that charge was reduced in the plea agreement to gross sexual imposition.

OUCH ! Will Lexter Williams die in prison of old age ? Home invasion in Youngstown has been no big deal in the past . Is the subculture losing political clout ?
