A former Disney employee who offered Disneyland tickets in exchange for sex with a 14-year-old girl has been sentenced to a year in jail.On July 1, 27-year-old Darreck Michael Enciso made a post on Craigslist looking to make the exchange, and unwittingly was emailed by an undercover Huntington Beach police officer post posing as a teenager. They scheduled a meeting for July 9 in Huntington Beach, where Enciso was arrested and found with the tickets and condoms. On Friday, Enciso pleaded guilty to three felony charges related to the incident, reports CBS Los Angeles.

According to City News Service, Enciso already has six months of time served to his credit. He will also be placed on five years of probation and have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Enciso was a dishwasher at one of the Disney-owned hotels near the park, but officials did not specify which. The company said he was immediately fired after he was arrested.
