The newly appointed attorney for alleged Delaware County child molester John Jackey Worman said yesterday he probably won't oppose the government's motion to keep Worman locked up.
Worman, 39, of Colywn, was indicted by a federal grand jury on Jan. 25 on 51 counts of child porn.
He is being held at the Federal Detention Center here.
In a court filing Tuesday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle T. Rotella said Worman is an "extreme danger" to those around him and she wants a federal judge to order him to stay behind bars.
"I don't believe we're going to oppose the government's motion," Worman's attorney, S. Lee Ruslander II, said yesterday. He declined further comment.
Worman is to be arraigned before a federal magistrate today.
The feds said Worman installed a video camera in his bathroom wall and videotaped four children.
Authorities also allege he sexually abused eight other children, three of whom were infants, one just three months old.
Rotella has also filed court papers asking a judge to revoke the bail of Worman's two alleged accomplices, Concetta Jackson, 44, of Collingdale, and Dorothy Prawdzik, 43, of Drexel Hill.
They have detention hearings this afternoon before U.S. District Judge Lawrence F. Stengel.
