A 38-year-old former executive senior pastor at Second Baptist Church of Kalamazoo in Michigan, US, has been accused of paying boys to have sex with his pregnant wife as he watched.
The pastor and his 27-year-old wife Jazmonique are currently facing charges of child sex offences.
The woman who is a mother of five and expecting the sixth child allegedly recruited at least four boys aged between 15-17 from the school where she worked as secretary and at their church.
The allegations first came to light in 2018, when two of the alleged victims and a parent reported the couple to the police.
According to court documents the Stricklands paid the teenage boys to have sex with the wife while her husband watched.
One alleged victim told police he was introduced to Jazmonique during the 2017-2018 school year and on one occasion was offered $50 (£37) in exchange for his naked selfies.
The same boy claimed Strickland asked him to have sex with his wife at the couple’s home in front of him and paid him $100 (£74).
The pastor, a dad-of-eight, has also been accused of paying two boys $100 each (74) to watch his wife perform sex acts on them.
According to the documents, the pastor allegedly sexually assaulted one of the boys and then gave him hush money after the victim told him to stop.
Another alleged victim said he was 16 when the pastor paid him cash in exchange for his naked photos in 2015.
When he turned 17 Strickland allegedly coerced him into allowing him to perform a sex act on the teen and offered him the use of his car in return.
Jazmonique handed herself into police on Monday and was charged with eight felony counts of child sexual assault and abuse, and human trafficking of a minor for commercial sexual activity.
Her husband, who previously served as the president of the local chapter of the NAACP, was removed from his post at the church in July.
