Three Ohio Pastors Face Life In Prison For Human Trafficking


Three pastors who worked together sex trafficking underage girls are facing life in prison.

Two Ohio pastors who were charged with child sex trafficking in July have been joined now by a third minister. Prosecutors allege the three men worked together to seduce underage girls, offering money for sex.

A federal grand jury in Toledo has indicted the Rev. Cordell Jenkins, of Cleveland, the Rev. Anthony Haynes and the Rev. Kenneth Butler on conspiracy to sex traffic children.

Both Haynes and Butler are also facing charges of obstruction of a sex trafficking investigation. Haynes is accused of attempting to destroy electronic evidence of sex trafficking, while Butler is accused of instructing another individual to lie, and then lying himself to law enforcement about his involvement.

All three men have pleaded not guilty and potentially face life in prison.
