Union County Man Sentenced In Underage Sex Case

Harry Wood Jr. was sentenced to 18 years and 11 months in prison by the Union County Court of Common Pleas after engaging in an unlawful sexual relationship with an underage girl.

Wood pleaded guilty to four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, one count of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, three counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented materials and one count of possession of criminal tools.

The 34 year old had unlawful photographs of the girl, and sent her unlawful photographs of himself via cellphone. He also provided the girl with a cellphone to continue the relationship after the girl’s parents discovered photographs on her phone and took it away.

The investigation started after a report of “sexting” between Wood and the girl was reported to the Union County Sheriff’s Office.

Wood must now register as a Tier II sex offender and child victim offender.
