Bangor Man Sexually Assaults a Family Member

Patten man sentenced in sex assault By Judy Harrison Tuesday, - Bangor Daily News

BANGOR — A Patten man described by friends and family as kind, considerate, caring and generous was sentenced Monday in Penobscot County Superior Court to 15 years in prison with all but 11 years suspended for sexually assaulting a female family member for a decade.

Kirby G. Williams Sr., 54, also was sentenced to six years of probation and ordered to undergo sex offender treatment and to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Pending charges involving a second family victim are expected to be dropped.

Williams did not address the court and showed no emotion when his sentence was handed down by Superior Court Justice Thomas D. Warren.

The victim, who is now 31 and lives in the South, did not attend the sentencing. She testified at the trial that the abuse began when she was 5 or 6 in 1986 and continued until she was 15 or 16, Deputy District Attorney Michael Roberts said Monday.

The abuse began with fondling and escalated over the years to sexual intercourse that began when she was about 12.
