A Disney World employee was nabbed for trying to lure an 8-year-old girl for sex — after bringing a child-size pink dress and condoms to the “encounter” that was actually set up by an undercover federal agent, authorities said.
Frederick Pohl, 40, of Clermont, Fla., believed he had been chatting online with the girl and her dad to arrange a sexual encounter — but he was unwittingly communicating with the fed, the US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida said in a statement Thursday.
Pohl allegedly sent explicit photos of himself to the “girl” and agreed to meet with her at an Orlando hotel.
He was arrested upon arrival and charged with transferring obscene material to a minor and attempting to entice a minor, the feds said.
A spokesperson for the Middle District of Florida confirmed to 7 News Miami that Pohl was employed at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. A Facebook page that appears to belong to him indicates that he works at Tomorrowland Attractions, one of the themed “lands” that make up the Magic Kingdom.
Pohl faces a maximum sentence of life behind bars if convicted.
Disney didn’t immediately return a message.
