Jenkins pleads guilty and is sentenced to 40 years

Landon Taylor Jenkins, 24, has pled to child molestation with deadly force, an L2F, and child molestation, a B felony. He was originally charged with 8 counts of child molestions, including one L1F charge, the most serious, and one of rape.

Jenkins was arrested in late May 2018. The crimes involved both female and male members of his household committed over several years. Reportedly, victims were living in the home shared with his mother, her boyfriend and other family members.

Victims were allegedly threatened by Jenkins that if they told anyone what was going on, he would kill them or beat them up.

Jenkins received a sentence of 20 years on the 2 counts, both of which will be served concurrently. He received credit for 412 days.
