Fort Hood soldier arrested in child porn case

TEMPLE, Texas (KXAN) – A Fort Hood soldier used a fake modeling agency to lure victims in an alleged child porn case, according to police. Temple police say they got a report about a sexual assault from a victim who told police he met Lawrence Charles Wood, 36, online. Police say Wood convinced the victim to send pornographic photos to him and that he then arranged for them to meet.

Authorities say during the investigation, detectives found other pornographic images. The suspect claimed to own a modeling agency called “Starrz Fan Signs” to lure victims. After the suspect received the pictures, he allegedly arranged to meet with the victim and pay for the pictures, according to KCEN. During the meeting, the suspect was said to have forced the victim to perform a sexual act with him.

Police say the suspect threatened to expose the photos and videos that he recorded if the victim did not continue to meet with him.

Wood was arrested on Fort Hood in November 2014 and has since been released on a $50,000 bond. Authorities are now looking for any other victims involved with Wood. Police say that they were able to locate some of the victims in the photographs as neighbors of Coryell County, Copperas Cove, Killeen, and in rural areas of Bell County.
