SANTA ANA, Calif. – A former Disneyland employee pleaded guilty today to a court offer and was sentenced to one year in jail, five years of formal probation, and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration for attempting to sell tickets to Disneyland in exchange for sex with a minor. Darreck Michael Enciso, 27, Adelanto, pleaded guilty to 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.
On July 1, 2015, Enciso posted an ad on Craigslist seeking women willing to engage in sex acts in exchange for tickets to the Disneyland parks. He communicated with an HBPD undercover officer, whom he believed to be a 14-year-old girl, interested in the tickets. Enciso set up a place and time to meet with a person he thought was a minor girl to give her the tickets in exchange for sex acts.
On July 9, 2015, Enciso arrived at the meeting location with condoms and Disneyland tickets. HBPD officers then arrested the defendant near the pre-arranged location on Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach.
Deputy District Attorney Bobby Taghavi of the Sexual Assault Unit prosecuted this case.
