Former Toledo Pastor Sentenced In Child Sex Trafficking Ring


A former Toledo pastor convicted of child sex trafficking after a woman said he groomed her for sex when she was 14 has been sentenced to life in prison. 

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Anthony Haynes paid the girl for sex during a three-year period after promising her mother he would protect her. She says Haynes later introduced her to two other pastors and encouraged her to have sex with them. Cordell Jenkins is serving a life sentence and Kenneth Butler was sentenced to 17-and-a-half years in prison. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
