Two Disney employees, Donald Durr Jr. and Brett Kinney, were among 17 people arrested in a child pornography sting in Florida, according to a press release from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

Durr, 52, was a custodian and Walt Disney Resorts. He has been charged with eight counts of Possession of Child Pornography and one count of Promotion of Sexual Performance by a Child.

  • Investigators discovered a device with multiple images of child pornography and a DVD created by Durr nine years ago showing explicit images of a child, the sheriff’s press release said.

Kinney, 40, was a guest experience manager at Disney World. He has been charged with one count of Promotion of Child Pornography and 24 counts of Possession of Child Pornography-Enhanced.

  • The sheriff’s office alleges that Kinney would search online for images of boys from toddler-age to 10 years old. When confronted by investigators, Kinney told them that he was addicted to child pornography and had been viewing it for two decades.

Another man nabbed in the sting — William Hage, 76 — is a retired middle school assistant principal. All 17 suspects are pictured below.
