Medina pastor charged with rape

LAFAYETTE TOWNSHIP -- A Medina pastor and father of 17 children is in jail Monday night charged with rape.

Leonard Robertson was arrested for rape and gross sexual imposition for allegations involving two of his adopted children.

Both were teenaged girls at the time of the alleged attacks.

They are both now adults and out of the home.

Investigators say the couple served as a foster family and adoptive family for many years and still have six kids living at home.

The sheriff fears there are more victims out there.

Robertson is also a pastor with the Prepare the Way Community Church in Medina and he served as a volunteer chaplain for the Medina PD.

He was terminated from the police department following his arrest.
