Carthage, MO man charged with rape, physical assault on wife

William F. Hutson, a 33 year old man, was arrested and charged with forcible rape and forcible sodomy for allegedly attacking his wife Wednesday, July 15 at around 10 PM. The assault began after Hutson slapped his 32 year old wife hard enough to make her unconscious. Before the slapping, the wife told authorities that her husband raped and sodomized her after holding her down on their bed and after she plead with him to stop.

Carthage police stopped Hutson at around 10:20 PM, where they took him to the police department. They also issued a press release as shown below:

Further investigation by the Carthage Police Department uncovered that Hutson also committed the crimes of Forcible Rape and Forcible Sodomy on the same night. Hutson was held at the Carthage Police Department and charges were sent to the Jasper County Prosecutor for consideration of charges for rape, sodomy, and domestic assault third degree.

The Jasper County prosecutor’s office filed charges Thursday against Hutson for forcible rape and forcible sodomy. A probable-cause affidavit states that he allegedly held the woman down on a bed and sexually assaulted her despite her efforts to get him to stop.

A police detective called in on the case wrote in the affidavit that he observed fresh bruising on the woman’s arms and a bra strap that was bent due to the undergarment being forcibly removed.

Hutson is currently being held on $100,000 bond in the Jasper County Jail.
