Second suspect in sexual battery case stays in Volusia Co. jail

- A man accused of sexually battering a woman on multiple occasions has turned himself into authorities, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said.
Terrell Williamson, 18, was booked into jail Saturday night, a day after his girlfriend Daria Hill was arrested by deputies, officials said. He faces one county of sexual battery.
Investigators said Hill, 28, was an accomplice during one of the attacks.
Willamson is accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him on three occasions at an apartment complex in DeLand, deputies said.
Officials said the attacks occurred from Jan. 1st through Tuesday.
In the first incident, deputies said the victim told them that Williamson held a gun to her head, demanded she take off her clothes and sexually battered her.
In the second incident, the victim said that Williamson put a pillow over her face while he sexually battered her, officials said.
Deputies said in the third incident, the victim claims Williamson punched her and Hill held her down against her will as he sexually battered her.
Meanwhile, Hill and Williamson’s families claim this is all a big misunderstanding.
FOX 35 News was the only ones to speak to their families.
"He wanted to turn himself in the day before," said Williamson’s aunt Naketria Dunn. "I told him no wait until we get the lawyer and I can turn in all the evidence we got then bring him here."
Dunn showed FOX 35 a text message she said was between the victim and Williamson, agreeing to having consensual sex with Hill.
"I know all the charges will be dropped with the stuff we have," said Dunn.
That's why Dunn said Williamson was smiling in his mug shot. "When you're innocent you have nothing to worry about, why? God got everything; God gets the last say so," said Dunn.
Hill's mother said she doesn't believe the allegations.
"I don't picture my daughter or my son-in-law in that kind of way," Tanisha Hill said. "That's not the way those kids were brought up."
Hill is being held in the Volusia County Jail on $150,000 bond.
Williamson is being held on no bond for violating his pre-trial release regarding a previous case, officials said.
Deputies said more charges are likely to be filed against Williamson.
