PHILADELPHIA - January 25, 2007 - It is described by federal authorities as one of the most horrific cases of child pornography that they have ever seen. At the center of it all is John Worman of Colwyn, Delaware County and two alleged co-conspirators.
Worman's family tells Action News that he was actually living elsewhere at the time of his arrest a year ago. Back then, he was picked up for allegedly sexually abusing two minors.
Federal investigators said what they have found since that arrest is very disturbing.
"This may be the most horrific case that I have ever been involved with," said U.S. Attorney Patrick Meehan.
39-year-old John Worman of Colwyn, Delaware County was indicted on 51 counts of producing and possessing child pornography.
Investigators say they found more than one million pornographic images of kids on Worman's computer along with hundreds of videos of Worman sexually assaulting kids of all ages.
Some of them are just infants. The youngest was just three-months-old.

This should be an exception to the 'cruel and unusual punishment' method.

I believe in a fair trial in most situations but this one is just a waste of tax dollars.
Get a rope.
I'm speechless. This man needs killin. I'd pull the switch.
There were two women who aided and abetted - even running the video camera. Why are they out on BAIL?!!!!!!!!!!!!
Slow, gruesom, lingering death should be meeted-out to this degenerate sack of s***.
I favour maggots in the sinus cavity along with corkscrews driven under the kneecaps - for starters...
I would just toss him into general prison population and let inmate justice take care of this monster.
I'm going to go hug my kids.
Why are they out on BAIL?!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who knows! This is Philly. The drug dealers go thru a revolving door, why not these sickos.
how the heck was he around so many children ?
First I saw this. Hopefully the Inky or Daily news will have something more on it.
I'm all for, say, sawing them in half. Seriously. Rip them from stem to stern with a ShopSmith band saw.
The City loves to whine about the crime .. but they don't do much to keep the criminals behind bars
Whatever we do...do NOT shout any mean or intimidating words at this man!
>> Rip them from stem to stern with a ShopSmith band saw.
If he were in Vermont he'd probably walk with 6 months of unsupervised probation. The justice system should turn him over to the parents and turn their backs.
Calling it "the most horrific case" of exploitation of young children he had ever been involved with, United States Attorney Pat Meehan said three people have been charged in an incident involving a million photos and thousands of child pornography videos.
Multiple criminal charges were filed against three Delaware County residents.
John Worman, 39, of Colwyn, was charged with 53 counts of producing and possessing child pornography. Police have recovered more than one million images and videos from his computer.
He also faces other charges, including hundreds of counts of rape and sexual assault in Delaware County Common Pleas Court.
From 1997 to 2006, according to court documents, Worman sexually abused at least 12 children including infants as young as 3 months who were left by their parents at a baby sitting service in Collingdale.
With the assistance of Concetta Jackson, 44 of Collingdale, and Dorothy Prawdzik, 43 of Drexel Hill, who were babysitting the children, Worman would video the children as they used the toilet, undressed and showered.
Police said Worman had installed a video camera in a bathroom wall and used it to videotape four children between 2003 and 2006.
According to court papers, Worman sexually abused some of the children who he forced to participate in oral, vaginal and anal sex. He would video tape the assaults.
Officials are still investigating the crime and have not yet determined if any of the images were sold or if all of the children in the pictures have been identified.
Worman has been in custody since February 2006 and is being held in Delaware County Jail on $4 million dollars cash bail. The two women were arraigned in Philadelphia Federal Court today.
How about using the method preferred by so many democrats ... punch a hole in the back of his skull and stick in a cannula to suck out his brains, then just chop him up for tissue sales to research university programs.
That sounds fair to me.
The things I'd do to this pervert before I dispatched his soul to hell would have the taliban and al qaeda calling me a barbarian.
Because they're child rapists. Drug "dealers" are no different than the local liquor stores where I get my occasionally excessive doses of Scotch, rum, and vodka. Let's keep a sense of perspective: selling weed is not the same as raping kids. Death, or life in a cage, this guy should never see natural light again.
This is a federal case, not city or county.
That explains how they were able to get the kids
The POS needs to ripped from limb to limb
It was sarcasm but that's the way it is here. They let people go all the time.

Reminds me of an incident in the classic novel, How Green Was My Valley. The Welsh village had an incident of a perv molesting and killing a child. All the men of the village took the perv up on some mountain somewhere and dealt with him accordingly. The book didn't go into details, but the perv didn't come down from the mountain again.
What I don't understand is this. If he did this to infants there had to be bruising around the genital areas and if there was how was it not noticed?

I'd be willing to temporarily suspend the constitution just long enough to give this perv some damned cruel and unusual punishment.
I have no idea how it couldn't have been notice
Drawn and quartered would not be "cruel and unusual punishment"for this POS!
"As far back as August 2003, neighbors began keeping a log of all the goings on next door - the screams, the crying and the threats."
unless it was oral .. the report just says sex acts
Worm Man was simply behind his times. He would have made a great investigative partner for Kinsey.
They kept a log but didn't call police??
that I don't get either
Great. She claims to be a Catholic. The nerve.
OMG! The stupid neighbors heard crying and screaming of kids and just kept a log? Screaming at 2am and they just wrote it down??? WHY????
How does a grown man rape a 3 month old and not leave injuries??? This is insane!
And a second rope for the neighbors who didn't call the police -- for years.
Maybe the Candle business was just a front.
Either they are stupid .. or they tried calling someone about this and they were ignored
There is a whole lot more to this story
from NBC 10
Officials said some of the victims might be related to the co-defendants
" ... hundreds of counts of rape ..."
Can you imagine? I don't think I've ever even seen that written before.
