Rock Hill man charged with rape, burglary against ex-girlfriend

— A Rock Hill man out on bond on two sets of charges including robbery, drugs and domestic violence, and barred by court order from seeing his ex-girlfriend while on bond, is in jail on $200,000 bond after allegedly breaking into the woman’s home Friday morning and sexually assaulting her, according to police and jail records.

William Kyle Fields, 29, allegedly stood on a trash bin to climb onto a roof then swung into a second floor window at the Rock Hill home, police said.

Fields appeared in court Friday afternoon, often interrupting Rock Hill Municipal Court Judge Ray Long - the same judge who had set his bond months ago for domestic violence allegations. Fields claimed in court he had lived with the woman since his previous arrest in March that was set for trial next week, despite a court order that demanded he not see her.

Long told Fields that he had previous conversations with him about the woman but Fields cut Long off, saying: “You had that conversation, not me.”

Judge Long was undaunted, however, telling Fields, “I encouraged you to clean your life up.”

Fields has previous convictions for resisting arrest, drugs and domestic violence, Long said in court. Convictions for burglary and rape can carry sentences of at least 30 years each.

Court records show Fields faces several felony drug and robbery charges. Those charges are in addition to the domestic violence allegations that he already had concerning the same victim in city court. Rock Hill Municipal Court Solicitor Anna Miller told Judge Long that she would move next week to have Fields’ bond revoked on the previous case.

In Friday’s case, officers responded after a 911 call open line around 2:40 a.m. after dispatchers could hear a woman crying. Police located the victim downstairs who told them she had dialed 911 after finding Fields in her bedroom after 2 a.m., then dialing 911 and leaving the phone under her pillow. She told officers Fields sexually assaulted her.

Upstairs officers found Fields and arrested him, charging him with rape, burglary, and violation of a no contact court order.
