GREENWOOD, SC – (WSPA) – A Greenwood man has been sentence to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of molesting a child for years.
According to reports Howard James Wood Jr. was convicted of second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Woods assaulted the victim for a number of years up until 2009.
The victim reported the abuse to authorities in October 2015.
Following the sentencing, Eighth Circuit Solicitor David M.
