Preacher found not guilty

July 11, 2003

Camilla - A South Georgia pastor was acquitted of child molestation and sexual battery by a Mitchell County jury.

They deliberated for more than two hours Thursday night before reaching the verdict.

Twenty-four-year-old Chris Dorrity was accused of three counts of child molestation and six counts of sexual battery. Prosecutors claimed some of the misconduct happened at Dorrity's New Life Worship Center in Camilla, and involved young women from 15 to 24-years-old.

But the jury said Dorrity is innocent of all charges. The prosecution rested Tuesday and the jury heard from the defense Thursday. The trial lasted three days.
