Vestavia Hills man arrested for rape same day he bonded out of jail on rape charge

Samuel Woods III (Shelby County Jail)

A Vestavia Hills man will go to trial next month on six counts of rape. He was arrested and charged with rape while out on bond for the same charge.

Court records show Samuel Woods III's charges date back to 2015. Woods is accused of having sex with a girl who was between 12 and 16 years old. The incidents allegedly occurred in June and September of 2015. More charges were filed in regards to incidents that allegedly happened on April 17 and April 20 of 2016.

He left jail after posting bond, but was arrested again a few days later. After posting bond, he was arrested a third time, on the same day he left jail.

Woods remained behind bars until September of 2016 after a judge reduced his bond.

Fast forward to 2017, Woods was charged with two additional counts of rape involving a teen girl. A judge then revoked his bond, and Woods remains behind bars. His trial is set for next month.
