David Wills, who led Michigan InHumane in the 80s then worked as a vice-president for HSUS, was arrested and charged last month with crimes relating to the sexual abuse of a child in Texas. It’s his third arrest this year.
He is charged with two felonies, Continuous Trafficking of a Child and Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child.
Wills and a woman from Brownsville, Maria Losoya, are accused of forcing a female under the age of 14 to perform a long list of sexual acts including prostitution.
Wills, who fled both Michigan InHumane and HSUS amidst massive embezzlement scandals, bonded out of jail on his previous two arrests but this time would have to raise $100k in order to get out. Perhaps he has invested his embezzled funds wisely over the years and can cough up the cash. But hopefully not.
Predators often seek out jobs where they can access victims – preferably voiceless, vulnerable victims who can’t fight back. And the link between animal cruelty and domestic violence is well established. Does anyone think it’s a coincidence that Wills previously held leadership positions with organizations known to harm animals?
To those who blindly defend organizations that kill shelter pets and attack anyone who criticizes the killing with worn out excuses like “of course everyone who works here loves animals”, “we are all on the same team”, blahcetera: David Wills is not on my team. You can keep him.
