Xenia pastor guilty of trying to hire a prostitute

DAYTON — A Xenia pastor arrested in Dayton was found guilty earlier this year for loitering to engage in solicitation, according to court records.

Daniel P. Williams, 40, of Huber Heights, was found guilty in late August after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of loitering, according to Dayton Municipal Court.

Williams’ employer is listed as Arrowbrook Baptist Church in Xenia in both court record and the police report. The church’s website also lists Williams as their pastor.

Williams was sentenced to 60 days in jail, with 60 days being suspended. He will be on probation for one year, according to court records.
