U.S. & World

(WKRN) – A Tennessee Ridge City Judge is being charged with three counts of raping a child, according to the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office.

Judge Woodrow Adams was charged with three counts of rape of a child. Tennessee Ridge Mayor Stony Odom said Stewart County deputies took Adams into custody.

Odom said that while the judge serves in Tennessee Ridge, which is in Houston County, he lives in Stewart County. Prior to his move to Stewart County, he lived in Dickson County.

Odom says the town is in shock and that Adams is very well known and liked in the area. Adams has served as a city judge and recorder for over 20 years.

Odom says the Tennessee Ridge City Board will meet in early May and will discuss the matter then.
