OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon City man convicted of criminal mistreatment in the faith-healing death of his 15-month-old daughter has been sentenced to 60 days in jail and five years probation.
Judge Steven Maurer said Friday that the sentence reflects the seriousness of the crime and the duty of society to protect the health and welfare of children. The father, 29-year-old Carl Brent Worthington, could have been sentenced to up to a year in jail.
As a special condition of probation, the judge ordered Worthington to choose a pediatrician to provide regular care for his 5-year-old daughter and for the child he and his wife are expecting soon. The jury acquitted her of charges in the girl’s death.
