Innocent man freed after 14 years not angry: Johnny Williams had Faith in God!


It was just 14-years ago when Johnny Williams was accused of raping a 9-year-old girl on her way to school.  He told police they had the wrong guy, but the family of the young girl allegedly jumped to conclusions and thought he was the 'Johnny' who did this to her.   It's wonderful to know this man never gave up on God and kept the faith that He would work on his behalf, after contacting the Innocence Project. 

Williams knew he was innocent all along and never lied one time while doing hard time in a San Diego state prison.  Johnny Williams said he prayed and kept reading his Bible and that's what gave him faith to know everything would be alright in so many words.   After 14-years in prison, Williams has been exonerated and he says he hopes they find the real person who molested the young girl.  

We are so happy for this man of God.  Johnny Williams story should encourage all of us to keep holding on, no matter what we are facing in life.  God bless him.
