Disneyland Employee Allegedly Offered Tickets To Minor In Exchange For Sex Acts

SANTA ANA ( — A Disneyland employee faced charges Monday in offering free tickets to the Anaheim theme park to an undercover police officer who he believed to be a 14-year-old girl in exchange for sex acts.

Darreck Michael Enciso, 27, of Adelanto was scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon on one felony count each of attempted lewd act on a child, contacting a child with the intent to commit a specified sex crime and meeting a minor with the intent to engage in lewd conduct.

Prosecutors say Enciso allegedly posted a Craigslist ad dated July 1 seeking women who would engage in sexual acts in exchange for tickets to Disneyland.

A Huntington Beach police officer contacted the defendant and set up a meeting, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors say when Enciso showed up for the meeting July 9 "with condoms and Disneyland tickets" in hand, he was arrested.

If convicted, Enciso faces a maximum sentence of over four years in state prison and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration.

Disneyland Resort's Suzi Brown released a statement regarding Enciso on Monday evening.

"He was immediately relieved of his duties as a dishwasher."
