Review one lawyer's fight vs. Harris County probation officials.
According to public records, Cathryn, his wife, filed for divorce on Jan. 8, 2014, but the case was disposed for want of a prosecution. The aggravated sexual assault charge is a first-degree felony, which is punishable by a live imprisonment with a 25-year minimum sentence for the victim's age and a possible fine of up to $10,000.
Thorworth could have faced a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if he had gone to trial and been convicted of the misdemeanor charge. The prisoner later reported the incident, sparking a police investigation that resulted this week in Thorworth's guilty plea.
Two indictments, handed down by a Harris County grand jury, accused the 27-year-old of using a fake driver's license to hide his identity in his dealings with the women's health organization. The grand jury also charged him with the same misdemeanor he had alleged - the purchase or sale of human organs, presumably because he had offered to buy in an attempt to provoke Planned Parenthood employees into saying they would sell. Daleiden and Merritt were both indicted by the grand jury convened to investigate whether a Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast clinic had sold the organs of aborted fetuses.
