RUSHVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) - A Rush County pastor is now facing more charges of child sex crimes after a sixth alleged victim came forward.

Now the prosecutor is trying to increase the bond for Garry Evans. He's the pastor of the Rushville Baptist Temple Church.

According to our partners at the Rushville Republic, the new charges include child molestation and child solicitation involving a six-year-old.

We told you about this investigation last month when police first arrested Evans.

Prosecutors say he lured several children into his office with candy and then touched them inappropriately. Court documents say the youngest child was just three-years-old.

Evans will go to trial in February.
