Wife of Toledo pastor charged with child sex trafficking placed on paid administrative leave

Posted August 1

— The wife of a Toledo pastor charged with child sex trafficking in federal court has been placed on paid administrative leave with the Lucas County Commissioners.

A spokesman for the commissioners says Laura Lloyd-Jenkins, wife of Rev. Cordell Jenkins, was placed on paid leave effective Monday.

Lloyd-Jenkins was supposed to return to her job as a county administrator this week after previously being placed on disciplinary suspension for "failure of good behavior" in her duties.

That suspension started on July 17, 2017 and she was to be unpaid for 10 of those days.

Lloyd-Jenkins' previously resigned from the Lucas County Children Services board after federal agents testified in court that she knew her husband allegedly had sex with a teen and never reported it.

The prosecutors called her husband a "flight risk" citing evidence of internet searches made by Lloyd-Jenkins for plane tickets for her husband.
