Michigan Pastor Admits To Climbing Ladder To Watch A Couple Have Sex
A former pastor and Cornerstone University professor has pleaded guilty to climbing a ladder propped against a home so he could watch a couple have sex in their bedroom.
Jeremy Grinnell, 42, pleaded guilty Tuesday, May 13, in Kent County Circuit Court to one count of surveilling unclothed persons stemming from the incident on Nov. 7.
Grinnell propped a ladder up against the home, climbed up to a second-floor window and admitted to watching the Cannon Township couple having sex.
When he returned for another viewing the next evening, he was caught by the male victim and subsequently arrested.
At the time of his arrest, Grinnell was an assistant professor of systematic theology at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, a division of Cornerstone University. He was also a “teaching pastor” at Bella Vista Church in Rockford. He no longer holds either position.
Well we should hope not!
Grinnell was originally charged with two counts of the high-court misdemeanor that has a maximum prison sentence of two years. Standing with his attorney David Dodge, Grinnell was allowed to plead to one count which names both victims.
The plea to one offense allows for the possibility of the charge being expunged from his record after five years as long as he does not commit another crime.
Grinnell lives in Rockford along with his wife.
Somebody needs to school the pastor to this thing call “the internet” so he can indulge all his perv proclivities in the privacy of his own home.
