March for Logan County rape, torture victim hits roadblock

By Scott Finn 

Last month we brought you the horrific story of Megan Williams, the young black woman from Charleston who police say was raped and tortured for days in a Logan County trailer. 

All six defendants are white, and Williams said they used racial slurs against her as they assaulted her. So far, state and federal prosecutors have declined to pursue hate crime charges in the case. 

A group called Black Lawyers for Justice is representing the Williams family. The group’s leader met yesterday with federal prosecutors, but he wasn’t happy with what he heard. 

The group is organizing a protest through the streets of Charleston for November third. But city officials are requiring a one-million dollar insurance policy before they can march.
