An Ohio pastor was convicted in August for trying to hire a prostitute.

An Ohio pastor, arrested in Dayton, was found guilty earlier this year for loitering to engage in solicitation, according to court records.

Daniel P. Williams, 40, of Huber Heights, was found guilty in late August after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of loitering, according to Dayton Municipal Court.

Williams’ employer is listed as Arrowbrook Baptist Church in Xenia in both court record and the police report. The church’s website also lists Williams as its pastor.

Attempts to reach Williams by phone  were unsuccessful.

Williams was originally charged with a second count of loitering and a third count of soliciting. Both were withdrawn upon his guilty plea, according to Dayton Municipal Court. 

The violation happened at around noon Aug. 17, according to Dayton police.

Williams was sentenced to 60 days in jail, with all 60 days suspended. He will be on probation for one year, according to court records.
