A veteran Birmingham lawman facing a rape charge Tuesday resigned from the force. Lt. Pete Williston was released from the Jefferson County Jail on $50,000 bond. His release came a day after Williston, until recently the department's spokesman, was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a teenage relative. His attorney, Scott Morro, said "there's a lot of healing that needs to go on." Morro added that "there's remorse." Morris police said the victim, now 24, said she was sexually assaulted by Williston from 2008-11.
