Ralph later attended Heartland Baptist Bible College. But not even bible college could save him now, reports say he was found in a motel room with an underage boy.

Shortey who has brought upon himself and his family major shame was charged with three felony counts including engaging in child prostitution, engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church and transporting minor for prostitution/lewdness.

Ralph has been a member of the Oklahoma Senate since 2010. Shortey Made National News in 2012 When He Proposed a Bill Banning Human Fetuses From Being Used in Food.

Jennifer Shortey first met her future husband in 1997. The two got engaged in 2001 and went with a wedding on May 18, 2002.


Since their nuptials, Jennifer and her husband have expanded the family. They have welcomed three adorable daughters: Kaitlyn, Elena, and Evelyn –being the latest addition in 2013.

Ralph often refers to his wife on social media as, Jenni. The two enjoy outdoor activities such as shooting…at the gun range.

Jennifer Shortey apparently prefers to leave all the spotlight to her husband. The wife and mom of three seem a lot more private and not more details are known about her. Though something tells us she probably will have to leave her comfort zone to make a difficult decision soon.

Do you think she will stay by her husband’s side?
