HUDSON, Ohio — A local pastor accused of sex trafficking was released from jail in the Philippines.
Tom Randall, who was on a mission trip to help with typhoon relief and to spend time at three orphanages he helped to build, was locked up for more than three weeks.
Monday, the senior pastor at Christ Community Chapel in Hudson made the announcement on the Free Tom Randall Facebook page.
In addition to his Ohio ministry, Randall, a good friend of Gil Morgan, previously resided in Edmond and played golf frequently at Oak Tree National. He conducted bible studies for groups on the Champions Tour.
Rev. Joe Coffey said Randall is free and all charges were dropped.
Randall was recently hired as a ‘pastor at large’ for the Christ Community Chapel but Coffey said he has known and supported Randall for nearly 20 years.
