NC man gets 115 years for child molestation

CHARLOTTE -- A North Carolina man has been sentenced to at least 115 years in prison after pleading guilty to child molestation charges. The Charlotte Observer reported that 50-year-old John William Worthey pleaded guilty Wednesday to molesting an 8-year-old girl. Mecklenburg Assistant District Attorney Kelly Miller says Worthey made more than 80 photographs involving child pornography at his Charlotte home. Worthey pleaded guilty on the third day of his trial. Superior Court Judge Gentry Caudill sentenced Worthey to a minimum of 115 years and a maximum of 142 years in prison. Worthey had been arrested in 2006 after federal authorities said he had ordered child pornography over the Internet. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
