OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- There are new developments after prosecutors charged a man with child enticement last week. Police said Kevin Dorsey, 43, drove from Lenexa expecting to meet and perform sex acts on a 13-year- old girl. FOX 4 has learned Dorsey was involved with Performance Volleyball Academy, or PVA.
Parents tell FOX 4 hundreds of young girls play volleyball for the club.
FOX 4 did some digging and found Dorsey’s name listed on recent rosters for the team as an assistant coach. Hours after we made phone calls to the director, the website had restricted access and a Facebook page taken down. Older versions of the club’s website had a picture of Dorsey and listed him as a staff member for the “15 Gold Team.”
One parent, who didn’t want to be identified, said her daughter plays for PVA and she was not notified of the incident. It’s unclear if other parents were told about it or not.
“You can’t let one incident deter you from something, but it definitely opens your eyes and makes you more aware,” said a mother whose daughter was trying out for the team Tuesday night.
PVA director and owner, Christi Lutman, issued the following statement regarding the investigation:
Our first and only priority at PVA is to support and protect our youth. Immediately upon learning of this situation, the person arrested was relieved of his coaching duties and our national governing body suspended him indefinitely.
We are cooperating fully with the authorities and any further comment regarding this situation will need to come from them. I respectfully request that the news media refrain from contacting our players and their families. Please respect their privacy during this difficult time.
Dorsey is being held on a $100,000 cash only bond. He is due in court in May.
