Old Rape Kits and Four Brave Women Bring Rapist to Justice

With the help of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Sexual Assault Kit Testing Initiative, four women’s rapist was sent to prison for 10 years. The initiative helps use older rape kits to be tested for DNA to catch cold case rape or sexual assault cases. In this case of the four women, all signs pointed to Dwayne Wilson.

Stacey Fifer, who brought the case back to court, was racing against the clock for the statute of limitations. The four different cases against Wilson were about to become 20 years old, and then nothing could be done. Thankfully, Fifer was able to get the DNA tests to prove that it was Wilson who had raped all four women; one of them was 16 at the time.

Two of the rape survivors came to court to testify against Wilson. Both women didn’t really want to relive the horror that they went through, but it was to help put him behind bars. However, none of the women were present for his sentencing of ten years, despite his claims of insanity. It would have been nice to have at least one of the women present to see Wilson be put into handcuffs.
