    DHS Cast Member Arrested

    A Walt Disney World employee was arrested this morning on three counts of possessing child pornography.
    Investigators served a search warrant at the home of Charles Hurrey, 29, on Cagan Crossing's Boulevard in Clermont this morning and found three videos depicting children engaging in sex acts with adults and each other on an external hard drive, according to an arrest affidavit.
    Hurrey admitted to downloading the videos and told investigators that he is interested in child pornography because he is curious why people would make them, according to the affidavit.
    Hurrey denied ever sexually abusing a child, according to the affidavit.
    Kim Prunty, a spokeswoman for Walt Disney World, confirmed that Hurrey was employed at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where he issued and repaired photography equipment and deployed photographers to locations around the park.
    "Obviously, we take these things very seriously," Prunty said. "He has been placed on unpaid administrative leave pending the outcome of these charges."
    Investigators zeroed in on Hurrey during an ongoing undercover investigation with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, according to Det. Chris Loyko of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.
    Hurrey is being held at the Lake County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond.

    At least they are finding them- hunting them down and taking them away from WDW.

    At least it doesn't sound like he had much contact with kids at Disney.

I guess when you are as big as WDW has becomes.. and the hiring practices have gone to the dogs since positions must be filled at all cost and the pool of candidates is thin... this is what happens. Gee, I long for the days when WDW was only a small number of hotels and two parks only... and Casting was able to weed out the bad and the ugly.

    Re: DHS Cast Member Arrested

    Okay... what does his place of employment even have to do with this?? I would understand if it was on a work computer in his office at disney world. Or if he worked there and had been touching/taking pictures of kids at disney world. But he wasn't. He's still a sicko and and idiot, but disney world has nothing to do with this. I bet if he worked at a gas station, that would go completely unmentioned in the article.

    "Let he among us without sin be the first to condemn."
    Exactly, what was so horrible about what he did that his life and career at Disney should be ruined over it? The man never has, never would hurt anybody but because he was curious as to why someone else ever would he shouldn't be allowed to work at Disney? That makes no sense! They still do background checks on everyone but maybe they should start asking potential cast members if they have ever watched a horror movie in their lifetime, because God knows they might have gotten some ideas and do the unthinkable.

    Maybe because Casting is biased on how they conduct their hiring practices and business?
    While they hire trash like sex offenders or Child porn lovers... they also love to fire/ NOT hire good workers just because they have invalid or outdated reasons to believe they are bad for the operation. I for one am glad this crap comes out in the press, as it is not always dreams and magic what goes on over there.

    In regards to this situation and others similar to it, once you get fired at Disney for something considered a criminal offense, it's Disney Casting itself that will not re-hire you.. ever. You can go on to be the most productive and decent person on Earth etc, but Casting will keep your record for the offense, and you can go back there a decade after seeking employment and they will send you a "no re-hire" letter which is usually sent on plain white paper (no Company heading on it) nor will that notice be signed by any particular casting CM... because that is how they protect themselves from discrimination lawsuits. The Disney people are quite despicable me thinks and they deserve all the bad press they get because they will not treat any questionable CM with the same respect the company gets from the community.
