Rape suspect sprung twice without watch

The suspect in a nightmarish Beacon Hill rape - a violent ex-con, Level 3 sex offender and serial courtroom no-show - had been sprung twice this year and was free without any state supervision the night cops say he stalked his 28-year-old victim back to her apartment, put a knife to her throat, then raped her, robbed her and left her bound in the kitchen.
Anthony Williams, 45, was charged with aggravated rape and held yesterday on $1 million bail for the Nov. 10 assault. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf. He had been before a judge at least twice already this year: once in July for failing to register as a sex offender, and again in September on charges he choked a woman during an argument. Both times, he was released on his promise to return to court.
"That's horrible. That wouldn't have happened - maybe - had he been in custody," said Sarah Knights, 25, who lives near the scene of the 2 a.m. attack, in which prosecutors said Williams followed the victim into her building as she walked home from a night out with friends.
