A former Clinton Minister of music has entered guilty pleas on multiple child sexual abuse charges, but 50-year-old John Langworthy will not serve any jail time.
Langworthy, who pled guilty to five charges of gratification of lust involving five males, received ten years for each count, which was suspended. He received five years probation, and will have to register as a sex offender.

Two of the victims were allowed to speak aloud in court before sentencing.
