Steven Craig Sumner Case


Welcome to the Steven Sumner Tracker Page


It's quite sad that citizens like me have to step in and raise awareness on certain topics. I don't think there will ever be an easy way to discuss some of the subjects I tackle.


Somebody has to stand up for people that can't stand up for themselves. (For ex. children)

It is now August 2023. School is back in session, and yet our City/State has just lost a sexual predator by not properly tracking him.

I don't know about you, but when I think of

the child victims, all I can think of is

how hard this situation must be for them currently.

Sadly the victims don't have a choice yet. 

The victims have to try and function normal in a society that just lost a predator.


Some of the adults on Steven Sumner's

side have been quite rude to the victims.


Enabling Sumner's behavior is what helped catapult the case into a Nation Wide

Pedophile MAN Hunt!! 


There will come a day when we will be asked about our actions on EARTH. For me and my house, we will be glad to say I did everything WE could to protect the children and be the voice of those who couldn't speak for themselves.

Luke 17:1-2 NIV
17: 1 Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come,

but woe to anyone through whom they come.


2 It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.

A Tree and its Fruit (Matthew 7:15-23)

15Beware of false prophets,

which come to you in sheep's clothing,

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?


17Even so every good tree

bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree

bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,

neither can a corrupt tree

bring forth good fruit.

19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20Wherefore by their fruits

ye shall know them.

21Not every one that saith unto me,

Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of

my Father who is in heaven.

22Many will say to me on that day,

Lord, Lord, have we not

prophesied in thy name?

and in thy name have cast out devils?

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them,

I never knew you: depart from me,

ye that work iniquity.

What happened?!?

Steven Sumner was once a highly trusted person in Madison County, IN or so we thought. Sumner was a Predator in the Pulpit and a Council Member on the Madison County Council a.k.a Politician. Steven had already made his way to a platform by 2020, and that didn't stop him from molesting children he adopted. 

If you read the above paragraph and you are not disgusted or appalled then this page is not for you. Or better yet let this be a WARNING! If you touch or rape children in Madison County Indiana and you are a pastor and/or a politician then we will expose you, and we will help the victims or law enforcement catch you. 

Steven Craigg Sumner Mugshot
MUGSHOT: Steven Craig Sumner

The State of Indiana has FAILED the VICTIMS!! 4 separate cases ... 2 victims times 2 families ... the cases include over 18 charges.


The Steve Sumner cases started in 2020:

1.) 2020 case # 48C05-2012-F6-002976 (Decided?)

35-42-4-4(d)/F6: Possession of Child Pornography, 35-42-4-7(m)/F6: Child Seduction-Child care worker engages in fondling or touching w/child 16-17 

  • The Bond was for this case. The case says decided. The bond is no good, and can not be transferred to other cases.

Sumner was not arrested nor spent time in jail for the newer cases.

Childers is off the hook on the bond issue because

the case doesn't exist anymore if it's decided. 

Tippecanoe Judge GRANTED to VACATE Bond



2.)2021 case # 48C03-2107-F3-001950 (?)

Tippecanoe Judge DENIED Bond



07/27/2023 FTA WARRANT

4.) 2023 case # 48C03-2308-F6-002316 FTA WARRANT

Failure to Appear but where the charge released is a felony charge

NOTE: Steven Sumner has not been arrested on cases #2-4. Not sure why they kept asking for a bond when the Tippecanoe Judge GRANTED to VACATE the original bond from the first 2020 case on 07/21/2021. A person can't have a bond if they haven't been arrested yet for the crime. BOND increase DENIED at least twice in cases #2-3.

2nd NOTE Rodney Cummings said the other day that he was not responsible for the Sumner case anymore. Cummings didn't like what people were saying about the case on FB. The Madison County P.A. Cummings filed case number four. If his name is Bennett and He says he ain't in it. Then why does he file an F.T.A. for Sumner? The F.T.A. case # 4 is on behalf of case #3. Case #3 also includes the F.T.A. from case #4. 



The State of Indiana has had over 3 years to put the man behind bars. Yet, here we are hunting him down. Sumner could literally be anywhere.

A face only a Mother could love?!?

The Steven Craig Sumner case started in 2020. Sumner was also an active Madison County Council Member and a Pastor at the Lighthouse Church on Broadway. He also ran his own printing shop business. When this first started there were a lot of people that didn't believe he did the crime. 

Sumner's fall from grace wasn't instant. In fact, he continued to keep his position on the Council until 2021. A lot of us were demanding his resignation, and we couldn't figure out why he wasn't stepping down. Think about it tho, Narcissists don't go down that easy. Little did any of us know how deep this rabbit hole would really go? 

I initially tried to follow along with the case. I wanted to be a voice for the victims. Then things started getting weird with the cases. The local Judges started recusing themselves. Which is a good thing. Then the case was transferred to a Special Judge from Tippecanoe.


Here I thought a Special Judge was a good thing. As of 08/12/2023, I finally figured out Tippecannoe basically slapped Steve Sumner on the wrist as well in 2021 when they vacated his bond and then denied the bond in the consolidated cases. Basically, the State of Indiana Prosecutor Starbucks tried to add charges to the original bond, but that is not how bonds work. Therefore the State filed cases #2-3 to add charges. However, Steven Craig Sumner has not been arrested for the newer cases.

For all the people complaining about the bond amount: We have a bigger issue than the amount. I think we all need to know WHY the bond was VACATED 07/22/2021 and then DENIED Bond in the newer cases, and has yet to face jail time. Hence, why there is one mugshot that has since disappeared from the PUBLIC website for local inmates. 

Thankfully other news outlets and people like me have saved the 2020 mugshot just in case we needed it. Let that sink in a moment. Look at how easily sexual predator crimes can be swept under the rug. Seriously folks it shouldn't be this hard to see Justice for any kind of victim in America. 



Who in their right mind would want to support sexual predators?

I wish the answer was no one, but that is far from the truth. Surprisingly even people that don't know the sexual predator will say things like well only God can judge him or the Victim shaming starts almost immediately by those closest to the person being accused of the crime. 

Example Story right here in Madison County Indiana:

Back in 2016-2017, I had a run-in with a charismatic predator in the pulpit and a musician. He had been following my church circles for many years and came highly recommended by another local church (Greater Light Church).  


I would have never thought to question Greenwell's background considering he came so highly recommended. I even attended a worship session at his home. I remember telling him I was a sexual assault survivor and I also advocate for children victims or predators. The man had the opportunity to tell me he was a child molester at that moment, and he didn't even flinch. 

A couple of months went by. I was in charge of music at a local coffee shop event on Saturdays. I agreed to participate with Hope Brews Here before realizing child molesters would be attending. One imparticular would attend with a handler. I wasn't very happy about it, but he did come with a handler, right?!? 

WRONG! I guess one Saturday there was an issue with David Greenwell. None of the Church people that followed him around mentioned he was a sexually violent predator or he had been in prison for molesting a 6-year-old. Nor did anyone mention Greenwell was married to his Pentecostal wife in prison. 

I was very shocked to learn there are groups out there willing to aid and abet felons/sexual predators and despise those of us who hold them accountable for their actions. I used to think only Mothers could love someone so sadistic, but in my experience, in some cases, they will have an entire following including someone who is willing to marry them in prison. None of them seem to care the person was charged and proven guilty. 

I was naive to think only Mother's loved their monster sexual predator. In fact when the news of Steven Sumner's child molestation case broke 2020, I was a little shocked. 


Aiding and abetting (Wikipediais a legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets (encourages, incites) another person in the commission of a crime (or in another's suicide). It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if he or she is not the principal offender. The words aiding, abetting, and accessory are closely used but have differences. While aiding means providing support or assistance to someone, abetting means encouraging someone else to commit a crime. An accessory is someone who in fact assists "commission of a crime committed primarily by someone else".

Elements of Aiding and Abetting (Justia Law)

A charge of aiding and abetting has three requirements. First, someone else must have committed a crime. Second, the defendant must have assisted that person in the commission of the crime. Third, the defendant must have had knowledge of that person’s criminal intent or criminal plans. An individual will not be found guilty for accidentally assisting in a crime. For instance, if a man knows that his friends have committed a crime and are trying to escape and he causes an accident in order to allow them to get away from the police, this could be aiding and abetting. However, if the same man is involved in an accident that allows burglars to get away from the police, but he has no knowledge of the burglary or the effect his accident would have, he cannot be charged with aiding and abetting.

The elements necessary to convict under the aiding and abetting theory are: (Department of Justice)

1. That the accused had a specific intent to facilitate the commission of a crime by another;

2. That the accused had the requisite intent of the underlying substantive offense;

3. That the accused assisted or participated in the commission of the underlying substantive offense; and

4. That someone committed the underlying offense.

United States v. DePace, 120 F.3d 233 (11th Cir. 1997); United States v. Chavez, 119 F.3d 342 (5th Cir. 1997); United States v. Powell, 113 F.3d 464 (3d Cir. 1997); United States v. Sayetsitty, 107 F.3d 1405 (9th Cir. 1997); United States v. Leos-Quijada, 107 F.3d 786 (10th Cir. 1997); United States v. Stands, 105 F.3d 1565 (8th Cir.), cert. denied (October 6, 1997) (No. 96-9541); United States v. Pipola, 83 F.3d 556 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, __ U.S. __, 117 S.Ct. 183, 136 L.Ed.2d 122 (1996); United States v. Chin, 83 F.3d 83 (4th Cir. 1996); United States v. Lucas, 67 F.3d 956, 959 (D.C. Cir. 1995); United States v. Spinney, 65 F.3d 231 (1st Cir. 1995); United States v. Spears, 49 F.3d 1136 (6th Cir. 1995).

To convict as a principal of aiding and abetting the commission of a crime, a jury must find beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant knowingly and intentionally aided and abetted the principal(s) in each essential element of the crime.





It's not often that I hear the words aiding and abetting in the same sentence. The Churches say things out of context which makes some sermons hard to follow or understand. I also hear people say "that isn't what it means to me" when talking about scripture from the Bible. 

I often reply with "If you read the beginning of the Bible then it helps define the end of the Bible." Comprehending the Bible helps when it's in context. It took me many years to figure out that the books of the Bible are out of order.

(The Cepher - chronological order)

Another favorite reply I have is Webster's dictionary defines words in English in order for us to communicate. Let's see what Webster says to settle the debate on a topic or word. I've also found that giving a reader some definitions helps them to follow along with where I am about to go with this topic. 

I gave several sources on the topic of aiding and abetting above. I believe that aiding and abetting is wrong. To me it's similar to the wrong place and time theory when someone gets in trouble for just being somewhere a crime was committed. I know people who have been to prison for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and didn't commit the actual criminal. Both scenarios are wrong.

What makes the Sumner criminal case so unique is he was in many different sectors of society. Sumner seemed to excel at everything he did. It seems as if he was trying to be at the top of the seven mountains of influence. 

Steven Sumner was an Air Force Veteran, a Pastor, a Politician, a Foster Parent/Guardian-Adoptive Parent, and a leader in the City of Anderson, Madison County, Indiana area. He was influential and had connections all over the Nation. Yet, behind the scenes, Steven Craig Sumner led a secret life. 

One of the things I have an issue with is trying to wrap my head around nobody knew he was odd. None of the people closest to Sumner knew he was off a little in the head. I say that because he was supposedly connected to a lot of local politicians that are highly educated and apparently none of them knew Sumner was a monster behind closed doors. I find it hard to believe those closest to him had no clue he could commit crimes against someone or a child. 

A lady that has been in Indiana Politics for 20-30 years, and is married to a very influential person in the City of Anderson alerted me a few years ago to the odd behaviors of some of the local politicians. She said to me "Steven Sumner is my Daddy". I asked her to clarify the statement, and she backtracked on me. However, I knew at that moment there was something very off with some of our local politicians. Plus she said the name of another local politician that is known for child molestation who happens to be connected to Sumner's victims. 

Recently several different groups of people have been calling things to the attention of the Public. Alice Flowers points out the constitutional violations. Katherine Callahan alerted the Community to the beer cooler morgue the commissioners were using to store dead bodies, plus many state violations. Madison County Government Accountability has specifically been following the Likens Family and those who have been helping Steven Craig Sumner survive throughout the case. 

I can't forget that Larry McClendon went toe to toe with the Madison County Election Board at the same time as me. That is when I started realizing that Russ Willis, Tim Funk, Commissioner Olivia Pratt (Ex County Clerk), and New County Clerk blatantly disregarded my election complaint and the complaint against the election complaint process in Indiana to investigate residency concerns.

Ladies & Gentleman I am no longer able to keep a fact to myself. Bio Mom of Steven Sumner's victims was molested as a child by Martin "Skip" Ockomon sometime between 1986 to 1998. They say the truth shall set us free, but it usually gets me in trouble first. 

Right about now a whole bunch of people should feel bad for Victim Shaming! Supporting someone who has been accused of sexual crimes is right up there at the top of the list of ways to victim shame. People should be offended that someone who was accused of sexually assaulting 3 stepdaughters would be given so many positions of influence by 2023, and nobody talks about the victims. 

That is great that adult women a.k.a. Mothers supported Skip Ockomon. I'm sure the victims and everyone involved have had a lot of counseling on the issue. That doesn't take away the trauma that was inflicted on the victims over 30 years ago. 

I don't care how nice a person is. If they support or ignore sexual accusations against their Husband because their Pastor says it's the right thing to do is just as wrong as the Husband who committed the crimes whether he admits it or not. Neither Sumner or Ockomon needs to be given positions of influence in our community. SHAME ON THE ENTIRE LOT OF YOU!!


November 29, 2011:

Skip Ockomon arrested on child molest charges | Archives |

September 5, 2012:

Grand jury indicts 'Skip' Ockomon on child molest charge | Local News | 

RECAP 2023:

In 2011-2012 Skip Ockomon was accused of sexually assaulting 3 of his stepdaughters from 1986 to 1998. Ockomon's case was dismissed. It was dismissed essentially due to the Indiana Statutes of Limitations to investigate the crime and press charges for sexual crimes had ended.

NOTE: It has been called to my attention this a.m. (09/09/2023) that the Statutes of Limitations were extended on some sexual crimes as of 2020. If that is true then the people would like to see the Ockomon case reopened considering it's connected to the Steven Craig Sumner case. Catch 22: Victims over 31 yrs old.


The sexual crimes were reported. It was reported to Skip's brother. The brother didn't turn the case over to the prosecuting attorney. The behavior was ignored and covered up for over 10+ years. 

Ockomon may claim he is innocent of the charges today. Back in 2011-2012 being innocent wasn't part of his defense. Skip's defense was the accusations went beyond the Statutes of Limitations to prosecute.


How convenient is that folks?!? It's almost like a bunch of people helped cover up sexual crimes  and knew that at some point it would be dismissed. Ultimately that is sad to me. Especially since the case connects to the victims of Steven Sumner 2023. 

I personally don't understand how so many people can support someone in a leadership role of any kind who has been accussed of sexual crimes against a minor. People don't want me to talk about the case timeline. That makes me want to talk about it more.


How can WE ignore that the Steve Sumner case connects to the Skip Ockomon case?!?


At this point, I CAN'T IGNORE IT! I can't tip-toe around the issue because people don't want to believe that today's Skip Ockomon would be capable of such atrocities against a child or young female teen. I actually spoke to one of the victims after praying about it 2018. 

I prayed God to give me a sign. If you want me to leave Skip alone then show me what to do. A couple of months went by and God sent me one of the victims. She had no clue who I was and began telling me her story. I had to stop her because I already knew about it.


In fact, Skip, another one of his victims, and I have already argued about his case. Every time I mention something publicly then someone yells at me for talking about it. How dare you people! Thank You for letting me know that I don't wanna be your friend anyway. My moral compass is not broken. 

How did we get to this point? Good question.

We are here now because of a series of misfortunate events starting with Skip Ockomon in the 80's. Yeah, it's great that Skip is trying to help people today. What about the child victim now an adult who has carried the trauma? 


What would you say if I told you she was the Biological Mother of Sumner's Victims?!? 

Shortly after the news broke in 2020, I recieved a message. It was from one of the victims of Skip Ockomon saying that she was the biological mother of the girls molested by Steven Craig Sumner. 

I seriously wish this is NOT what God would have me do with the information. Nobody wants to be the person who is now morally and spiritually obligated to break the news publicly. BECAUSE of the sensitivity to the subject. 





I seriously hate to be the bearer of bad connections. I seriously believe that if society actually held people accountable for their actions then we wouldn't be in these extremely complex sexual predator cases.


We may never truly know all the answers to all the questions in regards to Sumner or Ockomon. However, the fact the cases are connected creates new categories of questioning. For Example how much did Steve Sumner know about the connections? Ockomon's victim seems to think that Sumner was very familiar with the case because he was Skip's friend. 

This week it was called to my attention that Steve Sumner was also a Fireman. Steve seemed to have his hands in everything around here locally. The fact he is ex Airforce tells me he is highly intelligent and ate up mentally at the same time. 

They teach us in AA & NA to focus on the similarities of cases and not the differences. It doesn't surprise me that either one of them would want to be at the head of Recovery Programs or Churches or Politics. Why can't being sober be good enough?!? SMDH 

They teach us at Church to abhor evil. Sunday School even quote scriptures to NOT harm children. I can't help but feel so much compassion for the child-aged victims in both cases even though one set of victims are adults. 


Romans 12:9 (KJV) 

... Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Galatians 5:19-21 ESV 

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

The similarities between Sumner and Ockomon don't stop at personalities. Both were firemen. They were friends. Let that sink in for a minute or five. Knowing that the men were friends makes me really start questioning the entire complex storyline of both cases. 

We the PEOPLE should really be like OMG?!? How can any of you force this on anyone let alone the PUBLIC?!? Then they have the audacity to be like but ya'all can't talk about it because only God can Judge them (which is true). However, God also gives people instructions on how to run a community. Back in the day humans like either one of them (Sumner/Ockomon) would be led out of camp and stoned to death. 

Leviticus 20:10 ESV 

“If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Matthew 5:28 King James Bible
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

I'm not asking for either of them to be killed. I'm saying we shouldn't be putting either one of them in leadership positions within our community. Then people wonder why we are in the top 10 most dangerous cities in Indiana. The people in charge break as many rules as the people do, and the people are held at a higher state of accountability than our leadership and their families over and over again. 

It seems the recurring theme around here is protecting people's families and not the community as a whole. The rest of us don't feel like putting up with someone's family that is NOT held responsible for their actions. These people are so focused on themselves that some of them have forgotten how to be human. 

A majority of the leadership around here don't know how to lead. They all know how to be rich though. Some of their children are the rudest children there ever were and others were their first victims. We are forced to accept it!! 

My intention in connecting the dots of information is not to beat a dead horse. I don't care what people do, for the most part, especially when it doesn't affect me. I do have an issue when someone's bad behavior does affect me or the community around me or the Nation. 

I've been working or volunteering in homeless outreach for many years. I'm learning this week 09/09/2023 that Skip Ockomon is in leadership positions in AA/NA, Suicide, Homelessness, Podcasts his own show of some sort, and  blatantly in a person's (vicitm's) face that a narcisisist would do to overcompensate.

This just dawned on me: There are alcoholics out there who get drunk and can't remember anything they do. In addiction/alcohol circles, it's called a blackout. Just because someone doesn't remember doing sexual crimes when drunk doesn't make it right.

What Happened? Alcohol, Memory Blackouts, and the Brain - PMC (

Alcohol primarily interferes with the ability to form new long-term memories, leaving intact previously established long-term memories and the ability to keep new information active in memory for brief periods. As the amount of alcohol consumed increases, so does the magnitude of the memory impairments. Large amounts of alcohol, particularly if consumed rapidly, can produce partial (i.e., fragmentary) or complete (i.e., en bloc) blackouts, which are periods of memory loss for events that transpired while a person was drinking. Blackouts are much more common among social drinkers—including college drinkers—than was previously assumed, and have been found to encompass events ranging from conversations to intercourse. Mechanisms underlying alcohol-induced memory impairments include disruption of activity in the hippocampus, a brain region that plays a central role in the formation of new auotbiographical memories.

Skip Ockomon Leadership Positions:

  • Fireman Sargent Ockomon

  • Worldwide Peer Support (Firemen)

  • Fire House Rescue Mission 

  • Turning Point Madison County

    Mental Health/Addiction struggles - Chief of Operations

  • American Foundation for Suicide Prevention 

What I don't understand is how someone with no formal mental health degree could be in charge of so many programs.  It's almost like he's spread to thin to deal with his own issues. 

Someone pointed out that his brother Kris Ockomon was the Mayor of the City of Anderson 2008-2012 when this case became public. I don't know about all of you, but someone who was accused of sexual crimes against children or teens should not be allowed to be the head of any organization considering the inadequate laws in Indiana. Did the charges get brushed under the rug due to Nepotism?!?

What is a Narcicssist?

Narcissism is a self-centered personality style characterized as having an excessive preoccupation with oneself and one's own needs, often at the expense of others.

Narcissism exists on a continuum that ranges from normal to abnormal personality expression.[3] While many psychologists believe that a moderate degree of narcissism is normal and healthy in humans, there are also more extreme forms, observable particularly in people who are excessively self-absorbed, or who have a mental illness like narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), where the narcissistic tendency has become pathological.
