DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - A collaborative effort among multiple law enforcement agencies has led to the conviction of a U.S. Air Force airman from Decatur County. 

21-year-old Airman Dustin Wood was found guilty of attempted sexual abuse of a child,  sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16, rape of a child under the age of 12, receiving child pornography, and fraudulent enlistment into the armed forces. 

The U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigation reached out to the Decatur County Sheriff's Office after learning Wood had posted an ad on Craig's list looking for a young girl. 

Deputies later discovered Wood had molested children in both Seminole and Decatur counties.

Investigator Ken Davidson with the Decatur County Sheriff's Office said, “If somebody sees his name and picture and says, 'Hey, that guy was a problem,' contact local law enforcement. If there's a new victim, if something comes up, we can charge him again.”

Airman Wood was sentenced by a military judge to be discharged from the armed services and will serve 35 years in prison.
