Convicted Sex Offender Arrested For Attempted Rape


Benjamin Willard Watkins was convicted of aggravated sexual battery back in 1997 and like most sex offenders just can’t keep it in his pants. Last Wednesday night/Thursday morning he jumped into a woman’s car in Maryville, Tennessee and forced her to drive to a parking lot of a rental company.

Watkins allegedly told the woman that he wasn’t going to kill her but she needed to cooperate with him. Watkins kept his victim in a headlock and took her into the basement of a nearby building where he tried to rape her but the woman managed to get away.

She ran to a nearby home where the residents called 911 for her. Maryville police arrested Watkins and he is lodged in the Blount County Jail on charges of Aggravated Kidnapping, Aggravated Sexual Battery and Aggravated Robbery. His bail has been set at $200,000.
