The judge initially sentenced Worthington to nine years in prison but suspended the sentence on the condition that he serve 90 days and pay a $5,000 fine. If he does not pay the fine, he will serve 180 days in jail. He has other restrictions as well.

Worthington will have to register as a Tier II sex offender for the next 25 years and serve a strict probationary period after getting out of jail. The conditions include drug and alcohol screenings, no access to the internet, no unsupervised contact with unrelated minors, and completion of a program for sex offenders. He will also have to go through alcohol counseling and remain sober.

Was this a fair sentence?
