I'm just shocked and stunned by this story. I live very close to this family and feel so sorry for this man's children. We live in a wonderful, safe small town and our Little League program is a great assett to our community. I'm appalled at the actions of Mr. Dunlap and hope that he is punished and gets the help he needs. Even more appalling is that his yard backs up to the Little League Park! I hope he is not allowed to live in our neighborhood around children anymore!

You don't see anything wrong with buying child porn? What is wrong with you? And where do you see invasion of privacy? He used the league's card to buy porn and pay for a family vacation. He was trusted to work with kids and then went out and did this. I just pray that he didn't touch any of those kids.

Like i said they need to do background checks on these people to know who to trust. I also didn't realize it was child porn I thought it was just porn I misread the article so that is my fault.

It's a shame. If he wants to be a perve and treat his family like shit by these presentations of his and steal money from inncocent people, then let him suffer. I feel no pitty for him. He is a shame to all fathers, husbands and men.

On the side of the park, they should have been tracking their funds monthly or had a set up to be on top of situations that can occur no matter the person. That is how people get away with the things they do. Play sweet and inncocent and then POW right in the kisser-you never seen it coming.

There have been how many situatiosn like this, church, schools, airflights?

What makes me upset is that last fall Mr. Dunlap sent a letter out to all Little League players asking for a monetary doantion because they were short on funds. He claimed that they were short because Oakfield did not hold the annual Labor Daze, which all in the town knew that we would not have it because of the road construction. He made this letter to us sound so personal and signed his name to it, no one else from the Board signed their name. The board should have doubled checked when they found out last year they were so short.

i agree with you about the bard not taking care of things from their end. Nothing should ever be sent out without at least one board approval. they should have had a set guideline to handle .....anything. I am in such a uproar about this because its simply wrong!!!! I feel so bad for the parents and teh children who take the rath from this. The company and teh person involved- I feel nothing for them, because he did it, and they did not do their jobs allowing this to take place.

Just to clear up the facts... everyone associated with OA Little League is subject to a background check. This includes an annual check on Mr. Dunlap. However, background checks do not reveal a person's sexual preference for children or his intent to embezzle their funds. Background checks provide information on previously convicted charges. Therefore, nothing was out of the ordinary with respect to Mr. Dunlap. Additionally, it is my understanding that the Board of Directors did receive monthly Debit/Loss Statements and that they were falsified. While it is true that more could have been done to prevent his alleged activity, hind sight is 20/20. Mr. Dunlap fooled us all.

They did do a background check, it was on the news.

when we received the letter over the fall asking for donations i was angered a bit, asking where does all the money go? now i know. by his actions the league was forced to raise prices this year, pricing some kids right out of the league. he should leave town.

Little league Parent, I agree with you and I am in no way supporting this guy. Oakfield Little League did raise it's prices this year but they are still cheaper than other leagues around. I know Batavia was charging $75.00 last yeat and I think it went up this year. I also do know tha O-A little league has spent $12,000 on batting cages, They tiled the field, they spent money within the last two years replacing sod, and they lost out on their Labor Daze fundraiser due to road and village reconstruction which annually brings in a couple of thousand dollars if not more. This is how it was so easy for this scumbag to steal money. Plus with the rising costs of liabilty insurance prices have to go up. Looking forward to a great 2008 and Mr. Dunlap being sent away.

As someone who lives very close by to Mr.Dunlap and whose son has frequented
that house many times over the last
several years, it saddens and disgusts
me to hear the obscene nature of Mr.
Dunlap's "habit," not to mention the
fact that he thought he pulled one over
on all of us who have a child involved
in OA Little League. There are many
good, hard-working people involved
in the league, and shame on you Mr.
Dunlap for taking advantage of their
trust in you! My only concern right
now if for the welfare of the Dunlap children.. what a heartbreak. Hope
justice is served in this case!
