Former Monroe substitute teacher accused of being child predator

52-year-old David William Huntley of Monroe is admitting to state police that he's held onto decades of dark, sick, secrets. Huntley who lived not far from Lake Erie and I-75 on rural East Dunbar Road in Monroe, was busted with startling evidence on his computer. 

Investigators say so far they've discovered between 300,000 and 400,000 pictures of child pornography. If that isn't sick enough, investigators say sadly there's more. After his arrest for possession of child porn, during the interview, they say Huntley admitted to touching young children in inappropriate ways. Investigators say he also told them that while he touched both young boys and girls for decades, he had a fetish for girls under the age of ten. 

"Grandma, great grandma; I babysat the great-grandchildren and it is scary. I'm afraid to even let them go out into the backyard, unless I go out with them," said a Monroe resident.

Neighbors in Monroe are both stunned and sickened to hear the news. David William Huntley was a substitute school teacher in Monroe from 2000 to 2003. Now, although he said his illegal activity with possession of child porn and touching children went on for decades, investigators say there are no former or active complaints about Huntley during his substitute teaching career. 

Huntley was charged Friday with five felony counts of possession and distribution of child sexually abusive material. He remains locked up in the Monroe County Jail on a $1 million bond. If convicted of all five counts, he could get up to 20 years in prison.

"He's where he belongs and I hope they keep him. I've got grandchildren and great-grandchildren and I don't approve of none of that garbage," said a Monroe resident.

Another resident said "I think it's surprising in this area. This is not a bad area. I've lived in Monroe all my life and to me it's sad that something like that happens and I am surprised by it."
