Metroparks police told us there were three different partners involved with Dan Deusenberry. One of the partners was identified and arrested. There are still two unidentifed suspects. The Wakeman police chief Tim Hunker took immediate action, and placed the officer on administrative leave. "If he doesn't resign, my recommendation is termination," Hunker told Channel 3 News. Channel 3 tried to talk with Deusenberry at his Strongsville home. He declined an on-camera interview, but said he's now getting help for what he calls "deviant sexual behavior." Mark Hopkins, a parent and the commissioner of the youth football league where Deusenberry coached, didn't know about the man's crime when he suspended him 3 weeks ago. The coach had failed to get a background check required of all coaches in that league. "I'll change some things. I won't be as nice of a guy to volunteers, said Hopkins. "I'll make sure they're done sooner than three weeks ago and required before they step on the field." Deusenberry pleaded guilty to public indecency charges and will be sentenced next month.
