Nashua man sentenced to ten years on Floyd County child endangerment as a sexually motivated offense charges

CHARLES CITY — A Nashua man who faced multiple child sexual abuse-related charges in Floyd County and later pleaded guilty to child endangerment as a sexually motivated offense charges has been sentenced to ten years in prison.

40-year-old Ethan Vorhes was accused of inappropriate contact with two minor children between 2018 and 2022, which also included showing pornography on one occasion to one of the victims during the abuse.

Vorhes was originally charged with two counts of second-degree sexual abuse, two counts of third-degree sexual abuse, two counts of lascivious acts with a child, two counts of indecent contact with a child, one count of indecent exposure, and one count of dissemination and exhibition of obscene material to a minor.

As part of a plea agreement reached in August, he pleaded guilty to two counts of child endangerment as a sexually motivated offense.

District Judge Chris Foy sentenced Vorhes this week to five years in prison on each charge, with the sentences to be served consecutively.
