Back to jail: Police catch convicted rapist in Lincoln

After he went on the run… for a third time

A 28-year-old convicted rapist from Lincoln was arrested and jailed after going on the run for a third time.

William Clawson was arrested in the early hours of Sunday, December 20 for a breach of notification.

On Monday, December 21 he was sentenced to eight weeks imprisonment.

Clawson, was sentenced to seven years in prison for the rape of a woman in Lincoln back in 2011.

He was released in January 2019 and since then has been wanted by police for prison recall and for threats to kill.

Police issued a wanted appeal on December 11 after Clawson, who has previously been described as a serious danger danger to women, failed to comply with a court order.

They said at the time that he could be in the Lincoln or Ermine area before he was later found on December 20.
