Florida Cruise Ship Employee Charged With Sexually Exploiting Child He Met Onboard Ship

Federal Prison

Federal prosecutors in Fort Pierce, Florida have charged a 38-year-old cruise ship employee from Stuart, Florida with enticing an underage girl he met on the ship into having sex with him and with producing child pornography by recording their sexual interactions. 

According to the allegations of the criminal complaint affidavit, Daniel Scott Crow, 38, met the victim while he was working aboard a cruise ship. 

The victim, a 16-year-old girl at the time, was a passenger on the ship, vacationing with her family.  After the cruise, Crow remained in contact with the victim and used a messaging application to solicit lewd photographs from her, says the affidavit. 

It is also alleged that Crow arranged to and later met the victim, who was still under 18, at a hotel, where he engaged in sexual activity with her while recording it.  Crow stored the conversations and videos involving the victim on his cellular telephone, according to the charging documents.
