Sparta coach arrested on porn charges

Sparta coach arrested on porn charges

A former assistant baseball coach for the Sparta Little League was arraigned Wednesday, July 14, on charges stemming from the alleged downloading and distributing of child pornography from his computer.

According to Michigan State Police Det/F. Lt. Curt Schram, 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 a search warrant for Mull’s home led to the 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. He posted bond last week of $5,000.

Mull reportedly had quit his position with the Little League several weeks ago, after the investigation started. Schram 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,” he said.

He said Mull had no prior incidents that 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,” he noted.

Mull is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on August 16, at 9:45 a.m. 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.
