Windermere Police Chief Daniel Anthony Saylor was relieved of duty Wednesday after being taken into custody by Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents on charges of giving unlawful compensation for official behavior and official misconduct.
He was released from the Orange County Jail shortly after posting a $5,150 bond, officials reported.
The charges stem from reports that Saylor, a former Melbourne police officer who resigned while under internal investigation, offered a subordinate officer compensation to falsify records related to a friend suspected of sexual battery on a child.
"We still have a very active investigation," said Susie Murphy, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Disney Pedophiles
You might think that if there were one single crime that Disney would work aggressively to counter it would be child molestation. But you would be wrong.[1] Of all Disney’s secrets, none is perhaps as dark and troubling as the growing number of active pedophiles in and around the Magic Kingdom.“Disney is having more problems than anyone else,” says [Detective Matt] Irwin, who has cracked several pedophile cases for the Sheriff’s Department.…(He also handled the famous 1997 “baby Jasmine” case, in which a newborn was abandoned in a Magic Kingdom [toilet].)[2]

While it’s difficult to know just who is working at Disney, copies of the company’s security records reveal that numerous employees have arrests for a variety of sex crimes.[3] Even repeat sex-crime offenders with criminal records have operated at Disney for years, apparently with the company’s knowledge.[4] Security checks would undoubtedly be a good idea since a surprising number of Disney employees have serious criminal records that are either unknown or ignored by Disney management.[5]

Detective Eric Fortinberry has a unique perspective on all of this, having both investigated sex crimes at Disney and worked at the park itself.“They probably don’t want the criminal checks because it would keep employees out that normally would get through,” he says. And beyond security background checks,[i] if Disney acted like any other theme park in Central Florida and cooperated with local law enforcement efforts, this would most likely lead to more arrests. Until it does the chances will remain quite low that these child molesters will be caught.…

“When they advertise their attractions as a safe haven for children, the least they can do is make a minimal effort to protect those children they are inviting onto their property,”[former Orange County, Florida, prosecutor] Michael Gibbons says.“Right now [1998] there are so many incentives for pedophiles to work at Disney.”[6]

“Disney World is the greatest attraction in the world for children and pedophiles,” says Professor Jack Enter, a criminology expert at North Georgia College.[7] Disney is a magnet for pedophiles, who prowl in search of kids. This is not a problem unique to Disney. Theme parks and many other businesses that attract kids also attract abusers.[8]

The chance to work at Disney attracts people like John Mushacke. On March 15, 1995, Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested the Disney employee on three felony charges: fondling a child, possession of child pornography, and procuring child pornography. Mushacke was charged with fondling a thirteen-year-old girl repeatedly while he worked at Disney. He pled guilty to five counts.[9]
