Woods

JANESVILLE - A former Beloit police officer charged in the alleged repeated sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl has yet to enter an initial plea in Rock County Circuit Court nearly two months after he was arrested.

Larry J. Woods, 62, is charged with one count of repeated sexual assault of a child. Woods served with the Beloit Police Department for 25 years and retired in 2007, and currently receives a department pension. He was arrested June 11 after an investigation into the allegations by the Beloit Police Department.

At a hearing Wednesday, Woods told the court he was set to pay the retainer for Madison-based attorney Tracey Wood on Aug. 14. At two previous hearings, Woods appeared without counsel, delaying his case as the court waited for him to secure an attorney.

Assistant District Attorney Scott Dirks said Wednesday he was "concerned about this case getting stale," arguing in favor of setting the matter on for a preliminary hearing.

According to court documents, Woods allegedly had over 100 contacts with the victim from September 2017 to June. Woods has remained free on a $100,000 signature bond. He is scheduled to appear next in court for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 22, according to Rock County Court Commissioner Stephen Meyer.
