BELL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

A former Fort Hood soldier accused of sexually assaulting a young girl in 2014 was brought back to the Bell County jail Tuesday to await trial.

37-year-old Lawrence Charles Woods was arrested in 2014 but was transferred to another agency for different charges shortly after.

The U.S. Marshals in Waco released Woods to Bell County after he was sentenced to 30 years behind bars for sexual exploitation of a minor.

In late 2014, a Temple girl, younger than 14, told her grandparents that she had been sexually assaulted by a man with tattoos and drove a Yukon.

The victim told police the most recent incident happened on Sept. 1, 2014, inside of that vehicle where Woods forced her to perform oral sex.

A friend of the girl told authorities she saw her go inside of the Yukon at a park in Temple and took a picture of the license plate. 

Police were able to confirm the vehicle belonged to Woods, and the victim was able to identify him during a photo lineup.

He is charged with aggravated assault and is in the Bell County Jail on a $500,000 bond. 

His pre-trial is set for May 12.
