Ex-Disneyland employee sentenced to year in jail for attempting to sell tickets for sex

SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) -- A former Disneyland employee in Anaheim, who was accused of attempting to sell tickets to Disneyland in exchange for sex with a minor, has been sentenced.

Darreck Enciso, 27, of Adelanto, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year in jail and five years of probation.

He gave his plea on one felony count of attempted lewd act upon a child, one felony count of contacting a child with the intent to commit a specified sex crime, and one felony count of meeting a minor with the intent to engage in lewd conduct.

At the time of the crime, Enciso was an employee at the Disneyland Resort.

Prosecutors said he posted an ad on Craigslist on July 1, seeking women who would engage in sex in exchange for tickets.

According to a press release from the Huntington Beach Police Department, Enciso communicated with an HBPD undercover officer, who he believed to be a 14-year-old girl seeking a free entrance to the park.

Enciso set up a place and time to meet with her in exchange for sex acts. On July 9, Enciso arrived at the planned location with condoms and Disneyland tickets. Huntington Beach officers then arrested the defendant near the location on Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach.
