A Disney employee is one of 13 men facing charges after an online child sex sting in Polk County. Sheriff Grady Judd yesterday announced the results of Operation Cyber Guardian Two.
Judd says eight suspects went to a meeting place to have sex with a child, and the other five interacted with the children online. All the children, though, were undercover detectives.
One suspect is Winter Garden’s Kevin Sanders. He was arrested last week at Disney where he worked for 16 years. The 42-year-old is also a husband and father of two.
