Ex-Anson youth minister indicted for indecency with a child


ABILENE, Texas - A Taylor County grand jury indicted Callan Rice, 26, after he allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with a member of his youth group.

Rice is the former youth minister at Bethel Assembly in Anson.

According to court documents, on Dec. 20, Rice was found with an underage girl behind the old Genghis Grill in Abilene on South Clack Street. The girl denied intimate involvement with Rice at the time.

On Dec. 28, the girl and her parents told police investigators the two had been having sexual contact over the course of several months.

Rice was questioned and arrested that day. He was released on a $25,000 bond.
