Pastor Caught Looking At Child Porn While At Disney World

49-year-old Cedric Cuthbert was arrested on suspicion of viewing child porn videos while on the job at the Disney World theme park, according to CBS affiliate WKMG.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office was allegedly contacted in April by Disney World authorities after they had discovered that Cuthbert had tried to access blocked websites and view several unsuitable videos on YouTube showing young girls from their computers. Apparently Cuthbert was not aware that Disney monitors their computers at the park by taking screen shots every three seconds.

Cuthbert, who is also a pastor at the St. James African Methodist Episcopal Church in Sanford, Flordia, had been employed by the Disney Orlando resort for seven years in the position of custodial manager. On Tuesday, he was arrested by authorities for soliciting a minor via the Internet and possessing child pornography. One of those screen shots included messages Cuthbert sent to the girls he was ogling, writing, “You are so cute!” and “Send me a private video.”

The pastor was kept in a private cell until he posted bail of $12,500 on Thursday morning and he was instructed, albeit forbidden, to have any contact with any minor—the exception being his two sons, aged eight and eleven.

According to the arrest affidavit, semen was found in Cuthbert’s Disney office, the station reported. While Cuthbert wrote an apology letter to Disney, the 49-year-old has since been relieved of his duties at St. James African Episcopal Church and fired from his work with Disney. The 11th Episcopal District released a statement saying that it was “extremely disappointed” with Cuthbert’s alleged behavior and said that he had passed a background check and successfully completed a training course on sexual misconduct.

There are no details on Cuthbert’s letter to Disney World.
