A St. Paul man will serve 15 years probation after reaching a plea agreement on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection to the rape of a 12-year-old girl in 2016.

Steven Pierre Williams was given credit for 354 days served in the Ramsey County Correctional Facility and had a 15-year prison sentence stayed.

Among the conditions of his probation:

He must participate in and successfully complete any treatment or counseling program ordered by the court, have no contact of any kind with his victim or any other minor females unless approved by the court or a probation officer therapist trained in the treatment of sex offenders, not be in areas frequented by minors unless approved in writing by a supervising agent, notify any spouse, immediate family members, significant other, employers and/or landlords of his sexual offending history and criminal record, maintain employment and/or schooling as directed by a supervising agent and not use the internet unless approved in writing by a supervising agent.

He must also abstain from using alcohol or any controlled substance and submit to random testing.

Williams initially pleaded not guilty to the charge in November 2016, but the plea was amended to guilty this past July.

St. Paul police were called to the Arlington Rec Center on April 19, 2016, after a girl who was 12 years old at the time said she had been sexually assaulted in the basement of a home on Albemarle Street.
