CARTER COUNTY, Okla. -- Former youth pastor and Carter County Deputy Allen Haworth will spend the next few years in jail.

Haworth was sentenced by a judge to 9 years and 8 years consecutively on two counts of lewd molestation on Wednesday. He plead guilty in November.

Haworth was arrested back in July after three girls reported incidents involving him while he was working as a youth minister at a Lone Grove church.

    When this first started back in July the newspaper said he had been arrested on 5 counts what happen he only got 2 counts against him. I am like the person from Ardmore this is nothing. He will do his little time and get right back out doing the same thing. Those kids are having to suffer all the pain.

    I think it is real funny how people like this get off so easy, where as people who get drug charges get slammed. Those kids do not choose to have this happen to them and yet still have to suffer from this tragic experience that will haunt those poor kids for the REST OF THEIR LIVES!! Someone gets thrown in jail because they sold or made drugs for people who WANTED it!!!! I think there is clearly something messed up here. So pretty much let's just slap them on the hand, throw them in jail for a few months, let them out and just wait and see if they do it again. I think the punishments for all sex offenders should be way maximized!!!

    I do not understand why CHILD MOLESTERS practically just get a slap on the wrist! I feel there are so many children being taken advantage of. A person with one peice of crack gets 50 to 99 in jail (don;t get me wrong, they should be in jail also) but it seem these predators either get anywhere from probation to just a couple years in jail. AND to be an ex-police officer and youth pastor--WHERE ARE CHILDREN GOING TO BE SAFE!!!! I want to keep my kids safe, but there are so many perverts in this world. I almost will not allow my children to stay the night anywhere just because of SH** like this.

    I seen on T.V. this guy just got 17 years that is not even a start for what he done to these children. Those precious kids are paying a lot of his time for what that nut did.

    Simple solution to this problem. guilty of a crime against children = Death penalty. And another thought, All persons given the death penalty should have sentance carried out within 2 years, and made public. There's some real reality tv....

    He is just another weird sick-o that was able to blend into society long enough to do his sick perverted actions. He will be well taken care of in prison. Those guys really "like" child molesters. He will pay ten times over.
