Former Police Corporal Gets 20 Year Term for Sex Crimes

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A former Montgomery police corporal is headed to prison. 46-year-old Billy Doss was given a 20-year sentence Tuesday for sex crimes that involved four junior high school students.

Earlier this month, Doss, a former school resource officer, pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges of enticing a child, attempted sodomy and sex abuse.

He was an 18 year police veteran who resigned in January.

Susan James, Doss' attorney, said he will ask Circuit Judge Gene Reese to reconsider the sentence.
