Medford court sentences molester to 25 years
Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Lorenza Mejia Monday sentenced a convicted child molester to 25 years in the Oregon Department of Corrections.
A jury convicted 59-year-old Michael Allen Doughty two weeks ago on several sex crimes that included a minimum 25 year sentence due to a piece of legislation known as Jessica’s Law.
According to the prosecution, Doughty was a long time friend of the girl’s family and during Thanksgiving week in 2010 he offered to take the girls on a trip to his east Medford property. He later committed the crimes against the girls who were ages seven and eight at the time of the incident.
