TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio county administrator married to a pastor facing child sex trafficking charges has been suspended from her position for “failure of good behavior.”

The Lucas County Board of Commissioners suspended Laura Lloyd-Jenkins on Tuesday. The 30-day suspension without pay and is scheduled to begin next Monday.

Lloyd-Jenkins is married to the Rev. Cordell Jenkins, the founder and pastor of Abundant Life Ministries in Toledo. Jenkins was indicted in April on child sex trafficking and production of child pornography charges. He has pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court.

Lloyd-Jenkins resigned from her position on the county’s Children Services board after taking a leave of absence in April following her husband’s indictment.

She didn’t return phone calls requesting comment.
