Anthony Haynes accused of assaulting two more minors in court papers

TOLEDO (WTVG) - Former pastor Anthony Haynes, who was convicted on charges of child sex trafficking earlier this month, is now facing accusations that he sexually abused two additional minors.

Those accusations were included in a sentencing memorandum filed by the prosecution on Tuesday.

In the document, the prosecution says that two siblings also experienced sexual abuse at the hands of Haynes while they were living with him in 2015. The siblings were 12 and seven at the time of the alleged abuse.

In the memorandum, the prosecution recommends the court impose a term of life imprisonment for Haynes, characterizing him as "a predator in every sense of the word" and saying he "used his position of trust to prey on victims who had lost their family or home."

According to the document, the siblings attended Greater Life Christian Center -- where Haynes was a pastor -- with their family. When Lucas County Children's Services received a referral about the family, Haynes and his wife agreed to take them in, which is where the victims say they were abused. The victims made these statements during a 2017 interview with federal investigators.

Haynes is scheduled to be sentenced on June 27th.
