Pastor Garry Evans, 72, who led Rushville Baptist Temple in Rushville, Indiana, for some 30 years, tried to take his life in November, weeks after he was arrested and charged with three counts of child molestation, four counts of sexual battery and five counts of child solicitation in a case involving a 3-year-old girl.

Police say Evans took the girl to his office for candy but pulled down his pants instead and made her touch his penis. He warned her not to tell anyone.
