After a jury found a Greenville man guilty of a committing a lewd act on an 8-year-old girl, prosecutors said his sentencing was delayed because he became disorderly with officers.

A spokesperson for the 13th Judicial Circuit said Millanyo Woody, 38, was convicted of criminal sexual conduct with a minor second degree on Tuesday, but his sentencing was delayed a day because he caused a disruption in the courtroom.

Prosecutors said Woody struggled with court security and was removed from the courtroom. Once court resumed Wednesday, the spokesperson said Woody was sentenced to 177 months in prison.

The victim testified during Woody's trial, saying he molested her when she was 8 years old.
