Hastings Faces 3 Years For Molestation

A plea of guilty was entered last week in the case of a Calaveras County man accused of committing a lewd and lascivious act on a child.

Thomas Hastings made the plea Friday in Calaveras County Superior Court.

Because of the serious nature of the charge, officials say Hastings will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Hastings will also need to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence.

He´ll formally receive his sentence of three years in state prison at the end of August.
