DALLAS – The stepson of megachurch pastor T.D. Jakes has been arrested on an indecent exposure charge.

Dallas police say Jermaine Jakesjakes is accused of exposing himself to two undercover vice detectives last month. He turned himself in Thursday and was released on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond.

His lawyer, Faith Johnson, didn’t return a call to the AP on Thursday. She told Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT: “We are aware of potential allegations involving Jermaine Jakes and are undertaking our own investigation of these allegations at this time.”

According to an arrest affidavit, the younger Jakes allegedly walked up to an undercover detective in a park and began masturbating while maintaining eye contact with the detective.

Jakes’ stepfather is a Dallas megachurch pastor who gave a sermon at the prayer service for Barack Obama on the morning he was sworn in as president.


Update: Pastor T.D. Jakes told his congregation Sunday that he would provide “help, support and restorative grace” to his stepson, who was accused of exposing himself to two undercover detectives last month. Hopefully this one is more successful than the one that Ted Haggard went through. We all know that after his restorative therapy his sexuallity is still “complicated”.

The pastor read a statement to his congregation, saying parents of children who don’t live up to ideals do not “diminish our love for them as recompense for our disapproval.”

This guy is 29 years old, obviously is living in the ‘Down Low’, because of his step dad. Let the brother live, and maybe he wouldn’t have to be going to the park and getting BUSTED!
