The happiest place on earth (if you have $100 per person to participate) has just gotten a little safer. According to KTLA, a former employee who tried to trade tickets for sexual acts has just been sentenced to one year in jail and five years probation.
KTLA reports that the employee, Darreck Michael Enciso, posted ads on Craigslist in July asking if anyone would be up for a trip to the park in exchange for performing sexual favors. And while his original ad was reportedly posted in a section where only those who are over 18 are supposed to visit, he was arrested for trying to arrange an encounter with a 14-year-old.
Fortunately, that 14-year-old was actually a decoy, so when Enciso showed up to meet the kid with both the tickets and a bunch of condoms, he was promptly arrested by the Huntington Beach Police and taken into custody.
Here’s a rundown of Enciso’s charges:
Darreck Michael Enciso pleaded guilty to one felony count of attempted lewd act upon a child, one felony count of contacting a child with the intent to commit a specified sex crime, and one felony count of meeting a minor with the intent to engage in lewd conduct, according to a news release from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Enciso will spend a year in jail, five years on probation, and will register as a sex offender.
