Pastor Kenneth Butler, 37, of Kingdom Encounter Family Worship Center in Toledo, Ohio, was arrested and slapped with federal sex trafficking charges, along with the Rev. Cordell Jenkins, 46, and the Rev. Anthony Haynes, 38. All three pastors are accused of knowingly recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing or obtaining a person under the age of 18.

Jenkins' wife and former "first lady" of Abundant Life Ministries in Toledo, Laura Lloyd-Jenkins, was also arrested for allegedly obstructing the sex trafficking investigation against him weeks after she was fired from her job as administrator in Lucas County, Ohio.
