Pastor accused of child sex trafficking faces federal trial

By JOHN SEEWER, ASSOCIATED PRESS TOLEDO, Ohio Feb 6, 2019, 1:55 PM ET

The former wife of one of three pastors accused of coercing and sharing teenage girls to have sex, often for money, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators Wednesday.

Laura Lloyd-Jenkins, who lost her job as a county administrator in Toledo after she was charged with interfering in her ex-husband's investigation, pleaded guilty to making false statements.

Her ex-husband, Cordell Jenkins, along with Anthony Haynes and Kenneth Butler, were accused in 2017 of child sex trafficking. Prosecutors said the men had sex with teenagers and sent one another photos and videos of the girls.

Jenkins and Butler already have pleaded guilty to charges that include child sex trafficking and are awaiting sentencing.

Haynes had been scheduled to go on trial Wednesday up until Lloyd-Jenkins decided to plead guilty. A new date for his trial has not been set. He could face up to life in prison if he's convicted.
