Woods pleaded guilty to having weapons while under disability, a third-degree felony, receiving stolen property, a fourth-degree felony, and failure to comply with order/signal of a police officer, a third-degree felony. A second receiving stolen property charge was dismissed.

He was sentenced to fours years in jail with 112 days of credit jail time served locally including additional days awaiting transport to prison. He will remain in custody of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office until he’s conveyed to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections to serve a three-year prison term.

Upon his release, he’ll be supervised on post-release control by the Ohio Adult Parole Authority.

According to court documents, Woods previously served a prison term in California, and there was a warrant for his apprehension.

His son, Timothy Woods Jr., 23, pleaded guilty to one count of receiving stolen property and one count of having weapons while under disability on Jan. 3 and was sentenced to three years in prison.

Both were arrested on Sept. 29, 2017, after evading authorities and being in possession of stolen firearms.
