Joseph R. Eyer, 52, was charged in 2020 with three counts of child molestation, a single count of sexual misconduct and a single count of sexual battery, according to court
Charging documents detailed how Eyer, a former deacon with Hammond’s First Baptist Church, purportedly molested the teen for several years in Gary. Eyer allegedly watched the boy in the shower many times and touched his genitals, according to the probable cause
Eyer’s wife testified ahead of his sentencing and asked Judge Salvador Vasquez to give him a modified sentence because her husband helps her run her business.
A man from Eyer’s church (Living Stones church in Crown Point), who said he works in church security, also testified in support of him ahead of his sentencing. He described Eyer as a good man who always has a smile on his face and said he is not concerned about Eyer being around children at the church.
