William Didway

William Benton Didway, 37, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with two felonies: first-degree rape and rape by instrumentation of a 16-year-old girl, according to documents filed with the case.

According to an affidavit filed with the case, the girl said Didway inserted his fingers into her vagina on Sept. 28, then penetrated her with his penis on Oct. 4 and 5. She told police that she was too scared of him to resist.

The affidavit states that a medical examination of the girl confirmed her account of the events.

Didway is out on a $20,000 bond, and is due back in court on Oct. 31 for a sounding docket.
