OWASSO, Okla. -- A multiple convicted felon who police say is on the run after allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend brutally Thursday night has a long list of felony charges and convictions, but has spent very little time behind bars.
Police say Quinton Williams, 31, gave his ex-girlfriend a horrendous beating with his fists and pots and pans, sending her to the hospital, before fleeing the scene. According to the police report he also tried to put her foot down a garbage disposal while it was churning.
Police say he also tried to strangle her and drown her by pouring water down her throat at her house in Owasso.
2 Works for You did some digging and court records show that going into Thursday’s alleged assault, Williams has had 12 criminal felony charges filed against him in six cases from Payne to Tulsa to Wagoner Counties from 2009-2016, most concerning domestic abuse and assault or protection from him by his partner. And yet he has only spent 1 year in Wagoner County Jail and 5 months in Oklahoma prison.
In the six cases in which he was charged with 12 felonies, he received 10 convictions; two felony charges were dismissed because witnesses didn't show up in court to testify against him. He was handed down six suspended sentences from prison or jail, and twice he paid fines instead of spending time incarcerated. And on one occasion, he was told to go to counseling instead of spend time behind bars.
Also on top of all those felonies and dodged punishment, he had five felony charges pending in a case in Tulsa County in which he had pled guilty and was expected to be in court May 15. Add to that whatever charges are going to be filed in Thursday’s case.
