Synopsis: In January of 2014 detectives from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office met with an adult female who reported that she had been sexually molested by her parents, repeatedly, from the age of 4-11. The female victim also reported that her parents had allowed her to be sexually abused by other adults during the same time period.

On 1/24/14, Sheriff's Detectives executed a search warrant at a residence off of Ruddick-Cunningham Road in Talmage. During the course of the search warrant Donald Dunakin and Ina Medina were taken into custody on an assortment of charges, all stemming from the sexual abuse of their children.

In February 2014, detectives, with the help of the victim, were able to identify another suspect who had sexually abused the victim 11 years earlier. The suspect, Walter Jesse Creed, had met Donald Dunakin and Ina Medina through on-line chat rooms.

On 2/27/14, Sheriff's Detectives executed a search warrant at Creed's residence off of Highway 253 in Ukiah. Detectives located a large amount of child pornography to include photogrpahs and videos during their search.

Sheriff's Detectives seized several computers from Creed's residence. The computers are being forwarded to the Department of Justice for forensic analysis.

Sheriff's Detectives sought the issuance of an arrest warrant for Creed. On 3/13/14, Detectives served an arrest warrant on Creed at his residence. Creed was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked for oral copulation of a child under 14, Lewd and Lascivious acts with a child, and multiple counts of possession of child pornography. Creed's bail was set at $130,000.
