A Disney hotel employee who is also a pastor at a local church is accused of downloading child pornography on his computer at work while writing a sermon, his arrest warrant said. Cedric Eugene Cuthbert has been charged with possessing material including sexual conduct by a child and soliciting a child for unlawful sexual conduct using computer services or devices.

“It’s really bad. It puts a damper on the community,” said Kevlin Davis, who attends Cuthbert’s St. James A.M.E. Church in Sanford.

In the arrest papers, a Disney employee relations manager accuses Cuthbert, who is no longer employed by Disney, of downloading the porn while working as a nighttime custodial manager at the Port Orleans Resort. While the porn was being downloaded, Cuthbert was working on a sermon for the church, the manager told police.

After watching one clip, Cuthbert sent a message to the person who posted the video to YouTube that said, ‘You are so cute!… Keep making vids! Send me a private vid longer, I am a big fan of yours!

Walt Disney World spokesperson Andrea Finger said they alerted authorities to what was going on.

“He’s no longer with the company,” she said. “There are controls in place that make us aware of activity, and we notified law enforcement.”

A judge set Cuthburt’s bond at $12,500 and ordered him not to have contact with children under 18.
