Trial begins Thursday for Irvin Baldwin

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - The trial begins Thursday for the former Hanover County minister accused of soliciting sex from a minor.

The commonwealth's attorney in Louisa County expects the trial for 80-year-old Irvin Baldwin to wrap up before close of business Friday.

The Mechanicsville resident was arrested last fall when authorities say he arrived to meet with who he thought was a 13-year-old girl.

He was actually corresponding with an undercover detective.
