A Magic Kingdom employee from Clermont is accused of trying to arrange a sexual encounter with an 8-year-old girl.
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida on Thursday announced the arrest of the Magic Kingdom Cast Member, Frederick M. Pohl, Jr. He is accused of sending inappropriate materials and attempting to entice a minor for a sexual arrangement.
Pohl engaged in a series of online chat communications to arrange a sexual encounter with an 8-year-old girl, believing that he was communicating with the 8-year-old and her father in order to set up an meeting. Pohl sent explicit photos of himself to who he believed was the child. When arriving at the Orlando hotel they had agreed to meet at, Pohl was arrested by the undercover federal agent who he was actually communicating with.
According to the criminal complaint that was submitted, Pohl was found to be in possession of condoms and a child-sized pink dress for the arrangement.
The Middle District of Florida confirmed that Pohl was employed at the Magic Kingdom, though it is unclear what his role was.
