Fugitive wanted for 20 years on sex crimes found living as a pastor in Alabama

Larry Albert Flake was convicted in 2001 on charges of sexual misconduct with a minor. A judge in Indiana sentenced him to 25 years in prison, but by that point it was too late.

Flake was on the run.

More than 20 years later, police found him three states away working as a minister at a Baptist church under the name Larry White, according to law enforcement and local media reports.

The 75-year-old was arrested Nov. 19 in Birmingham on charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, the Richmond Police Department in Indiana said in a news release.

Flake had worked as the minister of music at Evergreen True House of Prayer MBC in Birmingham for 10 years prior to his arrest, WBRC reported.
