FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) — A Fall River man convicted of second-degree murder will serve 20 years in prison following his sentencing.

27-year-old Rayquan Robinson appeared in Fall River superior court Thursday after being convicted of second-degree murder, armed assault with intent to murder, and carrying a firearm without a license.

He was sentenced to serve a minimum of 20-and-a-half years in prison for these crimes.

“If someone says grief doesn’t hurt, they are lying. The physical pain is unbearable,” said a family member of Jake Williams, who was killed by Robinson.

The family member added, “We will always have an empty seat at the table at holidays, birthdays, and any other occasions. He will never get the chance to meet my son, or his niece and nephew.”

The family of Williams pleaded to the judge to have Robinson kept away for a long time.

“Your honor, I beg that you give him the maximum sentence for each charge and no chance for early parole,” the family member added.

Williams was shot on May 6 of 2020 at the age of 22 in the area of Mott and Warren Streets.

Upon arrival at the scene, first responders found Williams where he would later be pronounced deceased at the hospital.

Robinson would later be found and arrested.
