Cecil John Dunlap, 66, of the 4300 block of Joyner Street, was charged and arrested Sept. 17 by the sheriff’s office investigators.

Capt. Rick Gaddis said one of the child’s family members reported the suspect to the authorities.

After a search warrant was made, child pornography was found on the suspect’s computer.

Both warrants were served Sept. 19 at the Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk, where he remains incarcerated as of this publication.

Wilda stated that the suspect and victim were known to one another, and that the alleged crime took place in Dunlap’s home.

No further information will be released in order to protect the victim’s identity, said Wilda.

      Blessed, While I respect your feelings on the subject, your all-caps (translation: shouting) and lack of punctuation minimizes your point. Makes some people not want to even read it!

    Oh, I don’t think he is innocent. But he is legally until he is convicted.

    In no way do I believe he is innocent, but our Bill of Rights says he is. I wish they could not publish this until it is tried in court. If I saw this guy I would be afraid I would hit him, would rather not know before the guilty verdict.

    An old man like this should know how to conduct himself when he is in the company of a minor. This pervert had child porn on his computer!!! Do you really think “innocent” applies to him?

    chill, Hopefully if he is innocent, he won’t be convicted. Therefore the death penalty comment is a mute point. If he is found guilty, fry him.

    Devil’s advocate, what if he is innocent? On the flip side, if he is not… I hope Satan himself does to this man every thing he ever considered doing to any child.

    It is stories like this that make a man want to bring down his own justice sometimes.
