Bail revoked for Natchez financial planner charged in rape cases

 

NATCHEZ — A Natchez financial planner had his bail revoked Friday after being indicted on a series of sexual assault allegations.

The Baton Rouge Advocate reported Friday that Orleans Parish Criminal District Court Judge Tracey-Flemings said the charges against William McDonough, 46, were enough to keep him in jail before his trial.

McDonough is a financial planner and owns a house in Natchez. He also owns a condominium in the Warehouse District in New Orleans.

Fleming-Davillier said her decision to jail McDonough was based on the increasing number of allegations against McDonough.

In 2016, a woman accused McDonough of raping her at his New Orleans condominium after they met on the dating app, Tinder.

Last April, another woman accused McDonough of raping her in the same condo after a Mardi Gras parade. Several days later, McDonough reportedly violated a protective order by contacting the woman seven times in one night.

Since the second allegation, a third woman has come forward to accuse McDonough of sexually assaulting her in 2014.

Last week, a special grand jury indicted McDonough on a second-degree kidnapping charge in connection with the 2014 incident, along with second-degree rape charges in connection with the 2016 and 2019 incidents, The Advocate reported.
