Alton Morgan, a Disney World employee from Lake County, was arrested on February 13 on child pornography charges after he reportedly downloaded and created child porn at his home. Morgan, 59, is being charged with multiple counts of production of child pornography, possession of child pornography, sexual battery, and lewd or lascivious molestation. He is being held without bond. News sources did not name an attorney for Morgan.
According to the arrest affidavit, investigators purportedly found several child porn images during a search of Morgan’s home on Monday. The detectives also reportedly found videos of Morgan molesting a young girl in his home. Morgan allegedly admitted to sexually abusing the girl, who is currently in California.
Police say Morgan met the victim’s mother online. She was also arrested on child pornography charges by police in California. Detectives believe that there are at least two additional victims in the case and are asking anyone with information to contact them.
A Disney World spokesperson told the press that Morgan has been placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the charges.
Another child molestation story was reported in Riviera Beach on Tuesday. Pedro Calixto Martinez of Lauderdale Lakes was also arrested on February 13 for allegedly sexually assaulting and impregnating a minor under the age of 12. He is being held without bond at Palm Beach County Jail.
According to the police report, the case was reported to Riviera Beach police on November 7, 2015. The victim’s mother reportedly found out about the sexual assault when her daughter, who was then 11 years old, was five months pregnant. When she questioned her, the pre-teen told her that she was raped by a man in an abandoned lot in Riviera Beach.
Detectives reportedly interviewed both the victim and her mother. They said the victim appeared to be scared and withheld details about the rape. DNA tests purportedly proved that Martinez is the biological father of the unborn child.
An arrest warrant was issued for Martinez in August 2016 on charges of lewd or lascivious molestation, impregnation of a child, and sexual battery of a victim less than 12 years of age. Martinez reportedly fled Riviera Beach. He was found and arrested in North Lauderdale by U.S. Marshals on Monday.
