A Henry County pastor is in jail for suspected sex crimes. He is wanted in Missouri.
Robert Azinger was arrested Thursday by the Henry County Sheriff’s Office on a “fugitive from justice” charge, and was arraigned Friday in Napoleon Municipal Court. He is being held at CCNO on a $100,000 bond.
Azinger is the pastor of St. Peter Lutheran Church in Florida, OH, just west of Napoleon.
He waived extradition while appearing in municipal court on Monday. Authorities from Scott City, Missouri now have 30 days to return him to Missouri to face charges.
Napoleon Municipal Court says Azinger is charged in Scott City with one count of first-degree statutory rape, five counts of second-degree statutory rape, and four counts of first-degree statutory sodomy.
