Accused child molester enters guilty plea

A north Macon man accused of more than two dozen counts of crimes against children pleaded guilty to several charges earlier this week.

Kenneth H. Johnston, 42, formerly of Oxford Road, pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of child molestation, six counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes, six counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, two counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor and six counts of exhibiting pornography to a minor, according to the Bibb County District Attorney’s Office. His sentencing is scheduled for next week. Johnston could face as many as 30 years on probation and 12 years in prison, said assistant district attorney Dorothy Hull.

He is being held at the Bibb County jail without bond, according to jail records.
