Ex-Baptist Minister David Rutherford Downs arrested on child-rape charges, Again

Report released has stated:

 

Nearly one month after the Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s office decided not to pursue charges against a Baptist minister accused of molesting a child, state prosecutors are trying again.

David Rutherford Downs, 55, was re-arrested on Friday on a warrant charging him with two counts of sexual battery and six counts of lewd and lascivious conduct.

The charges stem from allegations that the former Chuluota pastor had inappropriate sexual contact with a child under the age of 12 after over the course of several years.
