Rockford man, Little League coach, arrested for Child Sexually Abusive Activity

“We certainly want the parents to talk to their children, ask questions, talk to them about internet safety,” said Michigan State Police Detective Curt Schram after a Rockford man and Sparta Little League baseball coach was arrested for Child Sexually Abusive Activity. Schram said the MSP Computer Crimes team received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about Aaron Daniel Mull, 30, of Rockford.

Schram said the tip was investigated and search warrant for Mull’s home lead to seizure of material by the Kent County Prosecutor’s office and Mull’s arrest July 8. Mull faces seven years each on two counts: Using a computer to Commit a Crime and Distributing and Promoting Child Sexually Abusive Activity. Both are felonies.

“That was obviously our concern,” Schram said of whether any children had been targeted by Mull. He said Mull had no prior incidents which would have placed him on the Sex Offender Registry. “The Little League people didn’t do anything wrong. He was checked out like he was supposed to have been.” Schram also said there is no reason at this time to believe Mull had inappropriate contact with any of the Little League players. “We don’t want everyone to get worried.” Schram said.

Mull was released on bond and will face a court date or preliminary hearing within 14 days. Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Rockford Post at (616) 866-4411. Parents with questions or concerns are also welcome to call to talk about the arrest.
