NORTON – A 49-year-old Akron man, on parole from a 2000 rape conviction, was indicted Nov. 5 for allegedly raping a 45-year-old woman in Norton.

William Queen was indicted on two counts of rape and one count of felonious assault for reportedly causing “serious physical harm” to the victim.

“He was given a sexually violent predator specification,” Norton Police Detective Ryan Connell said.

Connell said the investigation took about three weeks.

“He had served for a rape in the ’90s in Medina County,” Connell said. “He was convicted of two counts Sept. 13, 2000, and paroled May 25, 2018. Part of his parole is he was required to register as a sex offender.”

Connell said that during a house check by the Adult Parole Authority, Queen was found to have a weapon and his parole was violated. Norton detectives interviewed him in the jail and filed the rape charges. He was being held in lieu of a $500,000 bond.
