"Nasty, nasty people:" 17 arrests after undercover child-predator sting
Full press conference: Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd detailed the six-day undercover operation, which targeted those who use the internet to prey on children. In total, 17 suspects face 49 felonies and two misdemeanors.
The suspects thought they were speaking with or on their way to meet with young teenagers for sex, but it turned out they were speaking to undercover detectives across several agencies in central Florida. Among those arrested include Disney employees, a registered nurse, and a married man visiting from California, officials say.
