Guilty but mentally ill. It sounds like this man needs to receive help for his condition, not a trip to jail, or even the bad media exposure that this kind of news coverage inflicts on people with his condition.
The temple workers were very charitable.

I'd bet my bottom dollar he's taking SSRI anti-depressants.

Fits the pattern.

Part 1:
Kelly grew up in Logan and I have been privileged to know him 20+. He is actually a great guy but sufferers from bi-polar and a manic depression. I have accompanied Kelly to his son's mission farewell, wedding, and his other son's Eagle Scout ceremony and soon his mission farewell. Kelly served a mission in Kentucky and got temple married. In the last few years he started to suffer from being bi-polar and manic depression. This has impacted his short and long term memory. Something I have also noticed during seasonal changes his bi-polar and manic depression flares. The worst is in the fall.

Part 2:
However, none of this has changed his good heart, the love for his children, ex-wife, or his desire for the best for those he comes in contact with. He is a good soul, loves the church and his Father in Heaven. He was most likely reliving a fond memory of going to the Logan temple with his ex-wife and needed to use the restroom. Consequently, made a wrong turn or didn't clearly read the sign. I have done that myself and only realized I was in the wrong place when I couldn't find a urinal. I have done this myself and only realized I was in the wrong place when I couldn't find a urinal. Whoops!!! Luckily, nobody was there.

Part 3:
If only this story was as exciting as it is being made out to be. The Logan temple people refused to press charges since he was not threatening and most likely came across as a bit confused and disconnected. I believe someone believed there was a spark in all of this and then fanned it into a flame at some level post the temple encounter.

Okay, so he had a warrant out for his arrest for not completing his mental health treatment. Most likely, Kelly probably had either forgotten that he had to go or believed he had completed it. If the authorities were so concerned about it why didn't they just pick him up off of the streets in Logan? He can generally be seen on a daily basis going to and from the grocery store or the bookstore and back to where he lives.

Let's all just wish Kelly well and do what we can for him and those like him. That would be the Christ like thing to do. Wouldn't you agree?
