BRUNSWICK, GEORGIA — After a six-day trial of a Brunswick pastor on sexual molestation charges, a Glynn County jury deliberated less than an hour Monday, finding Ken Atkins guilty of all charges.

Monday on “First Coast Connect” we talked about the trial of pastor Ken Adkins in Glynn County, Georgia, with attorney Jimmy Midyette. In honor of Victims Rights Week we spoke with Quigley House CEO Peggy Payne and we heard about the growth in the state’s nonprofit sector with Florida Nonprofit Alliance Executive Director Sabeen Perwaiz.
