Disney employees and school teachers were among those arrested this week as the result of a large Florida sex trafficking sting, known as “Operation Fall Haul II.”
Sheriff Grady Judd suggested he was not surprised that Disney employees were among those arrested. “Now, where would we be with an undercover operation and no Disney employees?” said Judd. “Oh yes, we always have Disney employees.”
