Fairview, Oklahoma — Tommy Pitts, the pastor at the Midway Assembly of God Church, is being held on a $1 million bail after being accused of raping his three adopted daughters who are between the ages of 6 and 12.

Police say the abuse had been going on for months, and was stopped by an observant wife who noticed something was not right in the house and did her own investigation. When she confronted her 51-year-old husband with her suspicions, he confessed to his crimes. She called police.

“We got a call from Mrs. Pitts,” Major County Sheriff Steven Randolph said. “She said that her husband was going to commit suicide. She said he just confessed to her that he had molested their three adopted daughters. We sent out two deputies to try to locate him. About 20 minutes after going out, we had a report that vehicle matching the description had hit semi south of Chester.”

Pitts had unsuccessfully tried to shoot himself before running his vehicle into an oncoming semi. Randolph said Pitts told the deputy who responded to the accident he was attempting to kill himself.

Pitts was arrested on 15 counts of first-degree rape, 15 counts of rape by instrumentation, 20 counts of lewd or indecent acts with children under 16 and 20 counts of forcible sodomy. He was also charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for intentionally hitting the semi.

Pitts is on suicide watch, police said while I submit them my suicide assistance proposal.
