The stepson of White Sox executive vice president Kenny Williams was ordered held on $150,000 bail and electronic monitoring after being charged with sexually assaulting his girlfriend at a downtown hotel over the weekend, officials said.
Dedrick Williams, 30, was charged with criminal sexual assault and unlawful restraint, both felonies, according to Police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez. Williams, of the 4700 block of North Central Avenue, was also charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.
A judge this afternoon ordered Williams held in lieu of $150,000 bail and also ordered that he be put on electronic monitoring if he posts bond. The judge also ordered that he not have any contact with the victim, prosecutors said.
Dedrick Williams is the son of Williams' ex-wife. Kenny Williams has not maintained contact with his stepson, according to a source.
Police were called to the Palmer House Hotel, 17 East Madison St. at about 3 a.m. Saturday for a domestic disturbance in a room at the hotel, police said. When officers arrived, they spoke to a 30-year-old woman who claimed she had been beaten by Williams, who she said was her boyfriend, according to police.
Williams claimed he had been attacked by the woman, police said.
According to a police report, the woman said Williams hit her with his fist and that she suffered a black eye, a swollen lip and bruises on her arms.
At that point, the woman did not say she had been sexually assaulted and she refused medical attention, police said. Williams was allowed to leave the hotel room, police said.
The woman was later taken by a female friend to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she told authorities she had been sexually assaulted, police said. Williams was arrested at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at his home, police said.
Kenny Williams declined to comment, according to White Sox spokesman Scott Reifert.
