A former pastor in Indiana pleaded guilty to drug and sex charges, the South Bend Tribune reported Wednesday.

James Irwin, 68, pleaded guilty to felony charge of dealing in a controlled substance and misdemeanor charge of patronizing a prostitute.

Irwin, the former director of the Care and Share Ministries in Plymouth and a local pastor at a local pastor at a Methodist church, allegedly gave a woman $10 and two pills as payment for a future sexual act to be rendered when his wife was out of town.

Irwin also allegedly gave another woman $50 to buy drugs and then offered an additional $10 for sexual favors, ABC 57 reported.

“I would never have imagined that it would have and definitely not in conjunction with the church in my community,” a neighbor of the church said when Irwin was arrested in August. “People should not use that type of position to garner trust from the community and then turn and do something like that person has done. That’s very unsettling.”

Trump's angry tirade was sparked when Twitter added a link at the end of one of the president's tweets that offered users additional facts about mail-in voting, which the president has falsely claimed is rife with fraud.

Trump ‘frustrated and angry’ that Americans care more about COVID-19 than his Biden smears: White House reporter

Published

President Donald Trump sees himself as the real victim of the coronavirus pandemic, and a White House correspondent says that's why he can't show sympathy for the 100,000 dead.

The president just can't bring himself to act as "consoler-in-chief," Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," because he's frustrated over COVID-19's damage to his re-election campaign strategy.

"This is a president who has been from the very beginning of this crisis has been frustrated and angry this has happened to him, and ill-prepared," Lemire said. "He was going into this year expecting to run for re-election on the back of a strong economy against what he thought would be a weak Democratic foe, and that all went away."
