A sex terrorist from Visalia was sentenced Thursday to 54 years to life in prison for luring a disabled woman out of a Visalia Walmart and savagely raping her behind the store, the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office said.
In July, a jury found William Bickford, 51, guilty of forcible rape, sexual penetration by force, fear or threats, kidnapping to commit rape, felony penetration of a disabled person, and related crimes.
On June 9, 2015, Bickford approached the disabled victim inside a Walmart store on South Mooney Boulevard. He convinced her to follow him outside to an area behind the store where he raped her.
