A former Denton youth pastor accused of multiple child-related sex charges worked at Denton Bible Church from 1995 to 2001, church officials said Thursday.
Robert Shiflet, 50, of Denton is charged with four counts of child sex trafficking-related crimes dating back to 1997, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas announced in a news release Wednesday. He pled not guilty Wednesday and a jury trial has been set for July 27.
According to the indictment, he is accused of transporting three different minors for illegal sexual activity around May 1997, March 2001 and from June to September 2002. The third minor in 2002 was also coerced to cross state lines for illegal sexual activity, according to court documents.https://dentonrc.com/news/accused-child-sex-trafficker-worked-at-denton-bible-church-officials-say/article_6b98f718-3d12-5cc7-bff6-4ed435d25d4d.html
