    Creep goes to jail

    Every once in a while, something unexpectedly bad happens to a visitor at WDW, even more irrehensible when it is a child. The following is the end of a court trial. Management should be proud of those lifeguards, for their quick thinking and action. One more (repeat) creep should be off the streets for life, here is hoping.

    Man gets 30 years for molesting girl at Disney

    Sarah Lundy
    Sentinel Staff Writer
    September 20, 2008

    A 63-year-old man was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison for molesting a girl in 2007 at a hotel on Disney World property.

    Orange Circuit Court Judge Thomas A. Mihok ordered William Bishop, who has a history of lewd-behavior arrests that goes back to the 1970s, to prison.

    Earlier this month, an Orange County jury found Bishop guilty of kidnapping, lewd and lascivious molestation, lewd and lascivious conduct, lewd and lascivious exhibition and use of a child in sexual performance. The incident occurred on April 27, 2007.

    Lifeguards at the Swan Hotel detained Bishop after an 11-year-old boy told them that he saw the man in a Hawaiian shirt exposing himself and fondling a young girl, records show.

    The victim, who lives out of state, was not in court Friday. Prosecutor Linda Drane-Burdick read a letter from her family.

    If Bishop completes his time in prison -- he would be in his 90s -- he will be required to be on probation the rest of his life.

    That's great news! He will get what's coming to him in prison.

    Now if they can just continue this trend and make sure they all go to prison. Like this guy...

    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/for...ested-dtd.html

    I strongly believe that any adult who does something horrible to a helpless, defenseless child, should be forced to face the same in prison as well. This is a family site so I won't go into details on what I mean but I'm sure you can read between the lines.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.
