Judge orders $100,000 signature bond for retired Beloit officer

A Rock County judge ordered a $100,000 signature bond for a retired Beloit police officer accused of child sexual assault.

Larry Woods, 62, faces one charge of repeated sexual assault of a child.

According to the criminal complaint, the assaults took place between November of 2017 and May of 2018.

A retired Beloit Police Department patrol officer was arrested Saturday, accused of sexual assault of a child, according to a city of Beloit news release.

Larry Woods, 62, retired from the police department in 2007 and has most recently been working as a security guard with the School District of Beloit and the Beloit Public Library.

Police say they were notified by the alleged victim's mother on Saturday, and police took Woods into custody later the same day.

He has been placed on administrative leave from the Beloit Public Library.

“The allegations against a former officer are abhorrent and tarnish the badge that so many men and women are proud to wear,” said Police Chief David B. Zibolski in a news release.

Woods is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday in Rock County Circuit Court.
