Man gets 115 years for child molestation

CHARLOTTE According to a Charlotte newspaper, 50-year-old John William Worthey pleaded guilty Wednesday to molesting an 8-year-old girl.

Worthey pleaded guilty on the third day of his trial. Judge Gentry Caudill sentenced him 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.
