NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A 24-year-old Nassau County man has been convicted of raping a 15-year-old girl last December, the State Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.

Warren Allen Williams Jr. was found guilty of sexual battery, lewd or lascivious battery and two counts of solicitation to commit witness tampering.

In December 2015, Williams forced the 15-year-old victim to have sex with him, leaving her with bruises on her back from where he pushed and hit her during the crime, authorities said.

Williams now faces up to 75 years in prison. He will be sentenced Dec. 8.
