2 Pulaski County men accused of crimes against a child

2 men from Pulaski County have pleaded not guilty to accusations of sex crimes against a child. Alexander Doyle and Patrick Dunn are accused of sexual contact with a student in the Waynesville School District, where Dunn worked as a contractor for janitorial services. Doyle, a convicted sex offender, is accused of taking video of the acts, while at Dunn’s home. The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office began the investigation after the child’s parent received a call from Social Services and from the Waynesville School District. Dunn is charged with statutory sodomy and sexual contact with a student with a bond of $250-thousand-dollars. Doyle is charged with statutory sodomy and sexual exploitation of a minor child with a bond of $250-thousand-dollars. A hearing for both men is set for Wednesday.

The Waynesville R-VI School District issued the following statement.

The school district has become aware of a former employee under investigation who has been taken into custody. Because it is a personnel matter and involves a legal investigation, the district is very limited in what it can say. The district understands that the public may have specific questions that we cannot answer; however, law enforcement officials may be able to discuss issues because they are not bound by the same privacy laws.
The Waynesville R-VI School District has fulfilled all of its reporting duties, including to law enforcement, and is fully cooperating with police officials. No reports of wrong-doing have been reported to the district while the individual was performing their duties for the district. As with all employees, a background check was conducted prior to being hired. The safety and education of the district’s students will remain our first and most important priority. We ask for the support of the community in helping us make that goal a reality.
