Former Plymouth Pastor Sentenced After Prostitution Sting
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. - A former Plymouth pastor is going to jail after getting caught up in a prostitution sting.
Jim Irwin, 68, will spend two years behind bars after pleading guilty to dealing in a schedule II controlled substance (a felony) and propositioning a prostitute (a misdemeanor).
Six other charges were dropped as part of a plea agreement.
Irwin was arrested in August 2017 for trying to buy sex and pay for the encounter with drugs.
He was previously the director of "Care and Share Ministries" in Marshall County, a non-profit group that helps provide shelter for families in crisis.
