The Orlando Sentinel is reporting the arrest of 53-year-old, Keith Seitz, who world on Disney cruises for the Disney Vacation Club.  Orange County deputies arrested Seitz on November 25th.

This is in response to a 13-year-old girl telling her mother that he raped her multiple times between 2016 and October 2019.

“The girl accused him of molesting her at his home, beginning when she was 10, according to court records. She said these incidents escalated to Seitz raping her “over 100 times” starting when she was 11.

She told police Seitz also took photos of her while she was naked and stored them on his phone “for when he’s on the cruise ship.”

During the time of the interview, the victim’s mother told police Seitz was at sea on a cruise scheduled to dock in Miami the next day.”

Seitz is “facing two counts of sexual battery on a child under 12, two counts of sexual battery on a physically helpless person, and one count of lewd or lascivious molestation on a victim under 12.”

He is now in the Orange County Jail without bond. He has also been ordered to have no contact with the victim or any child under 18.

The Director of Communications and Public Affairs for Disney Signature Experiences, Cynthia Martinez, has indicated that Seitz has been placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the charges.
