Greene County man pleads guilty to sex crimes involving children


U-R update

GREENSBORO, Ga. — A 70-year-old Greene County man will spend the next three years of his life in prison.

William Boyd Anderson, of Greensboro, pleaded guilty Monday morning in Greene County Superior Court in Greensboro to two counts of felony sexual battery and one count of simple battery, a misdemeanor, according to court records.

Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Amanda S. Petty sentenced Anderson to 10 years, the first three of which will be served in prison. Anderson also was ordered to register as a sex offender and to abide by sex offender conditions after he is released from prison.

Before sentencing, Leslie Saunders, a victim advocate, read a letter in open court from a victim’s mother, according to a court official.

Anderson was arrested Sept. 18, on three counts of child molestation and one count of felony sexual battery of a child under the age of 16, according to Greene County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Capt. Lee Stancill.

“The investigation began when we received information from the parents of one of the victims,” Capt. Lee Stancill said in a press release shortly after Anderson’s arrest. “After opening an investigation, additional complaints were received and those allegations were investigated as well.”

A court official said Anderson was arrested for inappropriately touching children in the neighborhood when they were at his residence.

Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit Chief Assistant District Attorney Allison Mauldin prosecuted Anderson on behalf of the state.
