Police rule death not suspicious for man found near I-35 in south Austin

HAYS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department and Hays County Sheriff’s Office are asking women to come forward after they say they’ve learned a former deacon with the Hays Hills Baptist Church has been accused of sexually abusing multiple young girls under the age of 12 from 2002 through 2007.

Recently, a counselor alerted Hays County detectives that a woman said she’d been sexually abused by now 85-year-old Charles Sweet when she was a child. Sweet had also been named as a suspect in a suspended 2012 child abuse investigation by APD. That case was then reopened as a joint investigation between the two agencies.

In 2012, Austin police were alerted by a girl’s parents she’d told them Sweet had sexually assaulted her multiple times at his residence several years before. She said Sweet inappropriately touched her under her clothes. In a police interview, Sweet acknowledged touching the victim. The case was suspended after the victim’s parents
