Florida Pastor Caught Having Affair With Another Man's Wife

By

A highly-respected pastor in Tallahassee, Florida had some serious explaining to do after he was caught having sex with another man's wife earlier this month.

According to WFMY, Pastor O. Jermaine Simmons met with a woman on January 17 to discuss business plans about providing less-fortunate children with basic needs -- a selfless act, to say the least.

Ironically, they wound up in bed together and were discovered by the woman's irate husband.

Yikes.

Apparently, the man came home early after being called by school to pick up his sick son.

When he found his wife was in bed with the local pastor inside his daughter's bedroom, he ran for his handgun and yelled,

I'm gonna kill him.

Moments later, Pastor O. Jermaine Simmons ran away from the apartment naked and hid outside behind a nearby fence.

After Simmons frantically left the scene, the woman called the police.

Apparently, her husband was so enraged, he threatened to diminish the pastor's reputation by exposing him on Facebook and dropping his belongings off at his church.

However, he soon agreed to return Simmons' belongings after phone negotiations with authorities. He also turned his handgun in to President Dale Landry of the NAACP Tallahassee Branch.

Luckily, Simmons chose not to press any charges and neither did the woman he had an affair with. She claims their relationship began in October.

Instead, the pastor addressed the members of the Jacob Chapel congregation regarding his sexcapade with the married woman.

In the video, he addressed his mistakes for the crowd, who cheered with support and forgiveness.

He said,

I'm hurting because I've hurt you. I can't speak to people on the outside. I am not Tallahassee's pastor. I am not Florida's pastor. I am Jacob Chapel's pastor. It hurts me that you have to defend my actions. You cannot defend sin.

Shockingly, Simmons was caught the same week his church was celebrating his 11th year as their leader.

I bet the church definitely wasn't expecting this kind of behavior during his anniversary week.
