Released Offender Charged Again

4-25-05 – David Ray Evans, 45, is once again facing charges of sexually abusing a child in Bryan County. Evans faced similar charges in 1999, but never went to trial after being ruled incompetent. That latest charge has Bryan County officials investigating how he was allowed back into society.

Evans was arrested Friday after being accused of molesting a 4-year-old relative.

Investigators from the Bryan County DA and Sheriff’s Office are investigating how exactly Evans was allowed back into the public. After being found incompetent to stand trial, he was admitted into a facility. How he got out is a mystery.

Evans also was charged with a similar crime in 1992, but that charge was not in Bryan County.
