Former corrections officer to be sentenced in sex abuse case
In April 2006, Lawrence handcuffed a woman in his apartment on Redwood Road and demanded sex acts, according to charging documents. He also showed the woman a badge and threatened to take her to jail and call the Division of Child and Family Services if she didn't comply, the woman told police.
Lawrence pleaded guilty to forcible sex abuse, a third-degree felony, in 2007. In exchange for his guilty plea, a charge of forcible sodomy was dropped.
He failed to show up for sentencing in April 2008, so a warrant was issued for his arrest.
In October 2017, investigators discovered that Lawrence had created a fake identity and was living in Hawaii. He was arrested there without incident last month.
