WAUPUN - "That's shocking. I'm appalled. I can't believe that happened," said Waupun parent Sue Lippold.
She's disgusted the man accused of wreaking havoc on her town through bomb threats is also a registered sex offender. He's been a referee at girls softball, basketball and volleyball games in Waupun, Beaver Dam and Mayville.
The Waupun Superintendent is just as upset with the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association/
"All of our officials came off of their list. WIAA is the one that licenses the individuals. You would assume with licensing you would also conduct a background check," said Waupun Superintendent Tonya Gubin.
We asked the WIAA why a background check wasn't done on Aaron Schreiber.
"We just started doing background checks this fall," said Todd Clark of the WIAA.
In Dodge County Court Friday, Schreiber faced 41 counts including being a child sex offender working with children and for bomb scares.
In the criminal complaint, Schreiber admitted to all but two of the bomb scares saying, "I would like to apologize for the recent uproar in the area, what started out as a joke by someone using my phone to make threats went out of hand."
Many are just relieved Schreiber is behind bars.
"A big sense of relief community-wide," Gubin said.
Waupun has already started doing background checks on all of their referees.
