Georgia Preacher Sentenced to Prison for Sexual Relations With Campbell Co. Teen

Posted:

Campbell Co., VA - A Georgia preacher will spend decades in prison for having a sexual relationship with a Campbell County teenager.

Roger Givens submitted an Alford plea to object sexual penetration of a child. That means Givens acknowledges the county has enough evidence to convict him, without admitting guilt.

Wednesday, a judge sentenced Givens to 25 active years in prison.

Campbell County Sheriff's deputies say Givens was senior pastor at Shekinah Ministries International in Atlanta.

Deputies say Givens met the 14-year-old through his church connections and began a sexual relationship at the victim's home in March 2011.
