Pastor Michael Jenkins, who was arrested in 2016 on one count of rape and one count of sexual grooming of a minor, was sentenced on Tuesday to 15 years and a $15,000 fine.  Jenkins, who is 68, is currently being held in Cross County, Arkansas.

FBI agents assisted Helena-West Helena Police on September 22, 2016 with the arrest after allegations that Jenkins raped a 15-year-old female in a camper trailer he owned. The arrest came after a lengthy investigation.
