Intoxicated Child Molester Found in Bushes Outside Muncie School

Corey Glass was convicted of molesting a Grant County boy in 2007.

MUNCIE, Ind. – A convicted child molester was arrested after he was found drunk in the shrubs outside of an elementary school, say Muncie police.

Officers found Corey Glass "sitting in the bushes against the wall" of St. Mary School at around 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Glass, 33, told officers he had intended to visit nearby St. Mary's Catholic Church to "talk to God", reports The Muncie Star Press. The school and the church are about one block apart.

There were several young boys playing in the schoolyard where Glass was found, court documents say.

Glass, who was convicted in 2007 of molesting a 9-year-old boy, is not accused of approaching the boys or interacting with them.

He was taken to the Delaware County Jail and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and sex offender failure to possess ID. He already faces four charges in unrelated cases.
