Beckley Little League Review Background Check Procedures
Beckley Little League has revised its background check process after discovering that a registered sex offender was a volunteer. A member of the league's board of directors, Bill Roop, says the organization barred 29-year-old Albert Aaron Mills from volunteering after learning that he is listed in the state's sex offender registry. Roop tells The Register-Herald that Mills started volunteering after the season began and a background check wasn't performed because he wasn't given a form to fill out. The league says it's putting in new procedures to ensure all backgrounds are checked.
