UPDATED: 8:10 am EST January 31, 2010ORLANDO, Fla. -- A federal Transportation Security Administration employee has been arrested in connection with the molestation of a girl, Orange County sheriff's deputies said. The man told investigators he planned to make her his "sex slave," according to the arrest report uncovered by Local 6.According to jail records, Charles Henry Bennett, 57, works as a TSA employee at Orlando International Airport, and was booked into the Orange County Jail early Friday morning after a 15-year-old girl came forward claiming Bennett touched her inappropriately when she was 12, deputies said.
A TSA spokesperson reached late Saturday night said it would not be possible for her reveal whether Bennett’s employment status with the agency was impacted by his arrest until Monday at the earliest.It’s unclear exactly where the alleged abuse took place and how Bennett and the girl met, because the arrest report detailing the abuse is heavily redacted. The report reveals, however, that the “protective investigation” that led to Bennett’s Friday arrest, was initiated after Florida’s Department of Children and Families was notified of the girl coming forward by her “house parents.”In the police report, Bennett acknowledges that he "groped" the girl, although the girl's version is more graphic.A DCF spokesperson reached late Saturday night said she would research the case to see what details she could legally provide by Sunday morning.Bennett’s family declined comment to a Local 6 photographer who knocked on his Winter Garden door Saturday.
Bennett’s apparent MySpace page says Bennett wants to meet “submissive females” and is a swinger who is a master of BDSM, which stands for bondage, dominance, sadism and masochism.Investigators wrote that Bennett was also very forward in his statement to them.“He advised, in a written statement, he actually asked her to be his sex slave,” the report stated.Bennett is currently being held on no bond in the Orange County jail.Watch Local 6 for more on this developing story.
