Florida Pastor and Wife Used Teen Organization to Turn Teen Girls into Sex Slaves
According to reports by CBS 12 in Palm Beach, Pastor James Jackson was once viewed as an upstanding member of the Palm Beach, Florida community. In 1999, Jackson and his wife, Valerie Jackson, founded Positive Habitat Aspiring Teens (P.H.A.T.) as a way for teenagers to express themselves and transition into adulthood.
However, the Jacksons are being accused of using their organization as a way to take advantage of the teens who they were suppose to help. A 15-year-old girl went to authorities and told them about years of sexual abuse by the Jacksons.
