WILLIE-TIMS

An Atlanta man who kidnapped and sexually assaulted a 26-year-old woman in Buckhead, will spend the remainder of his life in prison.

Willie Devontae Tims was convicted Monday on charges of rape, aggravated sodomy, kidnapping, hijacking a motor vehicle and weapons offenses, according to a press release from the office of Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr. He was sentenced to two consecutive life terms, plus 70 years.

Tims was arrested in March 2013, two weeks after he was part of a group that abducted a woman who was stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Peachtree and Roxboro roads. Police say four men approached and got into the woman’s car while she was at a traffic light. The men had the woman drive around the Buckhead area and eventually pointed a gun at her before forcing her into the back seat, where she was sexually assaulted.

The men eventually got out of the woman’s car, after which she went home and called police.
Police say two weeks later Tims called the woman and sent her a picture of himself. He was arrested a few days later.
