Wife of Ohio pastor accused of child sex trafficking resigns from youth services board
After news broke that an Ohio woman was aware of her husband’s alleged sex trafficking of a minor but didn’t report him, that same woman has now resigned from her position on the Lucas County Child Services Board.
As the Toledo Blade reports, Laura Lloyd-Jenkins, a former administrator on the county’s child services board, resigned Thursday after they published a story alleging she knew about accusations that her husband, Rev. Cordell Jenkins, had engaged in the trafficking of a minor.
She reportedly learned of the trafficking in late March 2017, and took a leave of absence from the board soon after. Now, she’s officially resigned — though she did not comment on why.
Her husband is the pastor and founder of Abundant Life Ministries, and has been “charged with two counts of sex trafficking of a minor and one count each of production of child pornography and receipt of child pornography.”
