CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Former Clinton teacher and music minister, John Langworthy has bonded out of jail in Jackson after being charged with 5 counts of sexual gratification of lust. His bond was set at $500,000.

This is the second time Langworthy has bonded out. He is facing two charges of sexual abuse in Clinton. Langford is accused of fondling boys aged 8-12 years old back in the 1980's. All the boys were from the Jackson-Clinton area.

Langworthy stunned the congregation of Morrison Heights Baptist Church in August when he confessed to church members that he had inappropriate contact with teenage boys in Texas and Mississippi 22 years ago.
