Pastor in Pennsylvania Opts Out of Trial by Committing Suicide

Posted on

A week from now, 61-year old Pastor Scott Sechrist was supposed to go on trial for 20 counts of involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and other similar counts.  This man was a Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Morrisville, Pennsylvania and claimed he was innocent all the way up until he pulled the trigger of the gun that killed him on Monday night.

This is the kind of story that just turns my stomach. This guy assaulted a little girl from the time she was nine years old and instead of going through due process, he takes the cowards way out and now she won’t get the real justice of seeing him sentenced for his crimes.  He answers to a higher power now, but in my opinion suicide is one of the most degrading, pathetic ways to go out of this world.
