A bench warrant has been issued for an accused rapist after he failed to show up for court.
Darnelle Williams was scheduled to be arraigned in Jefferson County Court Friday, but he didn't appear.
A grand jury indicted the 22 year old man earlier this month on first- and third-degree rape charges as well as a count of endangering the welfare of a child.
According to the indictment, Williams had sex with someone incapable of consent due to being physically helpless.
The alleged crime happened on July 18, 2015.
