Couple Caught Having Sex on Church Alter

Crystal Rowland, 24, and Matthew Pearce, 28, were busted having sex on a church alter. Crystal Rowland, 24, and Matthew Pearce, 28, were busted having sex on a church alter.

Deputies in Baker County arrested a couple caught having sex in a church.

Baker County Sheriff's Deputies say they received a call about a suspicious person outside the Mount Zion Primitive Baptist Church, on the night of March 11th.

Deputies say they found a red Toyota pick-up truck and went inside the church.

"Her drawers [were] in the stands. Her brazier was over on the outside the stands," Deacon Lonzie Altman recalled from his conversation with deputies.

According to the offense report, deputies found Crystal Rowland, 24, behind the altar.

Rowland was taken into custody. She told deputies that Matthew Pearce, 28, was still inside.

Deputies found him underneath the church, partially dressed.

Red tea candles were also collected from the church. Deputies say there was splattered red wax all over the altar.

"I don't know what has become of the people [that] somebody would just do something like that in a church," said Altman.

Altman has been the deacon of the church for more than 40 years.

"I was shocked," he added.

When asked why they decided to have sex inside the church, deputies say Rowland told them she wanted a "spiritual and sexual experience."

Altman says he won't judge the pair. He'll leave that to someone else.

"Don't think that the lord ain't got something for them," said Altman.

Rowland and Pearce each face charges of criminal mischief and burglary.

Pearce is also a registered sex offender. In 2002, he was convicted of a lewd act against a child under the age of 15.

He's being held on $10,000 bond. Rowland is being held on $20,000 bond.
