FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A retired police sergeant was sentenced to prison on Nov. 15, 2016 for multiple counts of child sexual abuse. 

Lawrence Woods, 67, was arrested and charged by Flint Police in September of 2014 after a victim came forward and reported crimes that happened more than 20 years ago.

Additional victims came forward following Wood's arrest and an investigation by the FBI. 

Woods pleaded guilty on June 7, 2016 to eight counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13, and eight counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct for multiple variables. 

“The Flint Police Department is disgusted by the actions of Lawrence Woods. His crimes victimized numerous citizens of the community that it is our duty to protect and serve,” Captain Leigh Golden said in a press release.

Woods retired from the department in 2002.

He was sentenced to 15 to 25 years in prison.
