Jenkins was convicted in July 2015 of indecency with a child - sexual contact after an incident in Tarrant County involving a 9 year-old girl. He was sentenced to 10 years' probation, but soon after, failed to meet the requirements of his probation and his duty to register as a sex offender.

In addition to probation violation and failure to register as a sex offender, Jenkins was also wanted out of Harris County, Fort Bend County, and Hays County for forgery and fraud.
