Menna will have his day in court in September. This should prove to be interesting.

what is it exactly that "carol" said that was a lie? there were no accusations in what she said, only a story of what happened at her church!
as far as whether he is a black op or a dentist or physician, all you have to do is go check it out for yourself online---it isn't hard to do! he wasn't any of those things. so what is the problem with what she said?

In 1997 Chris Allum orchestrated an amazing bungie jump with 7 people in a basket (1.5 tons) He asked me to be the rigger. About one hour before the Jump, Menna walks up and asks me if he could help. I said "sure" He handled some rope and left. He did not skull months over the logistics of pulling off this amazing feat. But he was there.

He tells a story of welding the basket late into the night and working tirelessly at more than one bridgeday celebration almost like he started the whole celebration...sad to see someone talking about a great feat only to deminish the greatness of the feat

I new Dave personally. I had dinner at his parents home and worked side by side with him on many occasions. I camped with him with our Scout group and personally know at least one of the posters here by name and location. Dave even attempted to extract my wisdom teeth, but was unsuccessful, a qualified dentist finished the job. At the time he had just graduated from Emory Dental school and was in the habit of calling himself "Doctor Menna". He did graduate but failed his boards. He told me the day it happened. He never retook the test that I know of. His father was very concerned about him - good people. Some of the best camp-outs we had, he planned.
BUT, Dave did insist on doing things that were, in my opinion, beyond reason, like provide a large tent for the group and then insist on sleeping in it with the boys. Inevitably an accusation was made by a Scout, and the Atlanta Area Council BSA investigated and banned him from Scouting - permanently.
To A.K.- If my failure to see his game led to a problem with you, you have my heartfelt apology and sympathy. I didn't know. It all made sense in the end though. He went to incredible lengths and expense to cover his scheme. This is not a witch hunt nor is it about religion! It is simply perversion in a very intelligent and motivated individual.

delayed again till April!!!!! Are you serious?? Sometimes our 'justice' system pisses me off in gigantic proportions! All this does is give menna more time to prey on those he should not. menna - your acts disgust me and you absolutely need to never ever, ever, ever violate those who can't defend themselves!!! If you would ever like to talk and confess and free yourself from your sin - feel free to confess.

If anyone on this message board is interested in seeing David Menna brought to justice, please contact me at the email above, particularly if you can provide verifiable information concerning Menna's previous involvement with young boys and the Boy Scouts. I am with the firm representing the family that has filed suit against him. I am also a retired cop of 20 years and want to see the right thing done in this matter as well as Menna' pending criminal case in Osage County. My work email is tkittle@rrblawok.com.

For those who are interested, Channel 6 in Tulsa ran a story on this case. See attached hyperlink:

March 8, 2010, update - for those interested, Ch 6 ran a story regarding plea / deferred sentencing in this case.
Please be encouraged to re-read message # 95...and make contact if needed. Sometimes a 'plea bargain' offers a BARGAIN for the offender, ie: 5 crimes for the price of 1!?! That doesn't take away, lessen or negate the crimes committed against the victim ...and it's especially sad when committed against innocent children. JUSTICE for all!

Yes, David Menna is now out from under his criminal case. On 03/07/2012, he will be able to go back to the court and have his case dismissed and expunged, which means sealed from the public. Further, his "probation" is supervised by the DA's office, not DOC, which essentially means he's being charged $40 /month for the next two years through the statutory DA's Supervision Fee. DOC probation would have required him to regularly check in with a state probation agent. He pled guilty to one count of Practicing Medicine w/o a License. The two Lewd Molestation charges, which carry a minimum of 25 years each, were dismissed.

HOLY Crap! I used to go to campouts with this guy in the 90's here in Atlanta. We always thought there was something weird, but I guess it's true! I walked in on him doing a "physical" on my best friend before a trip. He was 11 at the time. His parents had no idea that he was only a dentist and were willing to let him examine my friends genitals in front of them.

We always thought it was a little fishy, but didn't think anything of it.. Tonight I was curious what Ol' Dr. Menna was up to, and I find this...
