Baptist Missionary Behind Bars After He Se*xually Assaulted Child, Gave Her Gonorrhea

A former Baptist missionary from Iowa has been handed a significant prison sentence after being found guilty of Se*xually abusing a young girl and transmitting a Se*xually transmitted disease to her. The judge has ruled that 31-year-old Jordan Webb will serve a minimum of 17 years behind bars.

According to The Fort Dodge Messenger, Webb has been sentenced to 25 years for second-degree se*xual abuse involving minors under the age of 12, five years for incest, and two years for child endangerment. The jury reached the conviction in April, leading to this sentencing.

The judge emphasized that Webb must spend a minimum of 17 and a half years in prison before being eligible for parole. Additionally, he is strictly prohibited from contacting the victim for a period of five years. Furthermore, Webb will be required to register as a se*x offender upon his release.

The events leading to this verdict unfolded in April 2022 when the young female victim began experiencing health issues. Subsequently, she was diagnosed with gonorrhea, and it was revealed that Webb had tested positive for the same se*xually transmitted disease just days before the girl’s diagnosis, as reported by The Messenger. Prosecutors argued that Webb’s se*xual abuse directly led to the victim contracting the infection.

During the sentencing proceedings, Webb maintained his innocence, stating, “I would just like to say that I still maintain that I did not do this,” as per The Messenger. Webb intends to appeal the conviction as he pursues further legal action.
