A former Columbus police officer pleaded guilty Monday to child pornography charges. 

Sentencing is scheduled January 10 for 52-year-old Sergeant Dean Worthington, who pleaded guilty to counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. Worthington resigned last month under “dishonorable status” but remains eligible to collect his pension. Authorities launched an investigation last May.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
