Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando Rocked By Employee Sex Sting Arrests, Cnn Reports | Pennlive.com

(AP) View/Post Comments This is not the family friendly face that Orlando theme parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orland and SeaWorld Orlando want to show to the world. Instead, the theme parks are being rocked today by a CNN investigation that reveals some 42 staffers across the three parks have been arrested in sex stings or for child porn charges since 2006. According to the report , the arrest breakdown is as follows: 35 staffers from Walt Disney World, along with five from Universal Studios Orlando and two more from SeaWorld Orlando. Of that total, 32 have been found guilty, eight have been found not guilty and two have not entered a plea, CNN reported. The report revealed a diversity of suspects -- some married with children, a pastor, others working with children for years, USAToday wrote. However, most of those featured in the CNN report appeared to reach their potential targets through the Internet and child pornography websites, the newspaper said. Many of the suspects were nabbed as they traveled to meet someone who they thought was an underage child, but in actuality was a detective working with law enforcement, USAToday noted. However, Disney defended its employee pre-screening process to CNN: "We have extensive measures in place, including pre-employment and ongoing criminal background checks and computer monitoring and firewalls," Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said in a statement "The numbers reported by CNN represent one one-hundredth of one percent of the 300,000 people we have employed during this time period." Does this report shake your confidence in the family friendly nature of theme parks? Why or why not?

Disney theme park employees arrested in child porn and sex stings | WQAD.com

My familys life is ruined. My kids life is ruined. Ive devastated my parents because of bad judgment. Kingsolver, 49, is one of at least 35 Disney employees arrested since 2006 and accused of sex crimes involving children, trying to meet a minor for sex, or for possession of child pornography, according to a six-month CNN investigation that examined police and court records, and interviewed law enforcement officials and some of the men who have been arrested. Five Universal Studios employees and two employees from SeaWorld have also been arrested. So far, a total of 32 have been convicted, with the remaining cases pending. Two cases, which were for possession of child pornography, occurred on Disney property, according to police reports. None of the cases involved children or teenagers visiting the parks. Kingsolver, a service manager who oversaw ride repairs at the Magic Kingdom, has pleaded not guilty to soliciting a child for sexual acts and traveling to meet a minor for unlawful sexual activity. He said he thought he was going to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex at a house set up by detectives from the Lake County, Florida, Sheriffs Office, according to police records. Instead, when he showed up at the house, he was met by detectives.
