Disney employees and former judge are among the 108 people arrested in human trafficking sting, in Florida. Authorities have arrested 108 people including child sexual predators and people seeking prostitutes. According to reports released by NBC news Flordia Police conducted a six- day undercover human trafficking operation. Among those taking into custody four were Disney employees and a retired judge.
“The arrest of a human trafficker and four predators alone makes this whole operation worthwhile. Where there is prostitution there is exploitation, disease, dysfunction and broken Families.” ( Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd) The operation was called “Operation March Sadness 2”, detectives found prostitutes who posted online advertisments through websites and social media. Undercover agents started communication online with the people who posted the ads. They set up meeting locations and arrested them.
Officials identified four Disney employees as among those arrested. Xavier Jackson, 27, worked as a lifeguard at the Polynesian Resort for Walt Disney. Judd said Jackson sent inappropriate photos of himself and messages to an undercover detective who pretended to be a 14-year-old girl. He was charged with three counts of transmitting harmful material to a minor and one count of unlawful communication.
“We protected some little girl someplace that was groomed or potentially groomed by these evil, deviant criminals, thugs, that’s all they are,” Judd said about the four suspects at a press conference. “They’re dangerous people.”
The three others, who were allegedly attempting to solicit a prostitute, were identified by Judd as: Wilkason Fidele, 24, who worked at the Cosmic Restaurant at Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland for four years; Shubham Malave, 27, who is on a visa citizenship from India and worked as a software developer for Disney; and Ralph Leese, 45, who spent nearly four years working in IT for Disney.”
