Casa Grande Dispatch, Florence, AZ

A 49-year-old Florence man was sentenced Friday to two years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of molestation of a child. Darell Wayne Johnston must serve the entire term, visiting Pinal County Superior Court Judge Christopher Whitten ordered.

Johnston also was sentenced to three years supervised probation to be served consecutively to the prison term. He was ordered to register as a sex offender for life, according to the Pinal County Attorney's Office. Numerous other similar counts were dismissed in the plea agreement.

Johnston was charged after the Pinal County Sheriff's Office started an investigation when a complaint was filed Nov. 24, 2006 by the mother of one of the victims.

Adult probation, in court records, stated that Johnston's actions are consistent with that of a sexual predator and that he has caused great harm to the victims and their families.
