Underage Girl Says She Was Gang-Raped on Carnival Cruise to Bahamas
A Florida man accused of leading a gang rape of a 15-year-old girl during a cruise to the Bahamas denied taking part in the alleged attack — but admitted Tuesday to plying the group with alcohol, according to reports.
Casey Dickerson, 31, was arrested Monday and thrown into Orange County Jail on sexual-assault charges after the incident on a Carnival Sensation cruise Sunday, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Dickerson, of Casselberry, declined to say what occured in the room, but repudiated the rape accusation.
Dickerson was reportedly on the cruise with his wife leaving from Port Canaveral on Aug. 16. The couple was upset about noise heard from inside their cabin and were given a second room — but were also permitted to keep the first one.
It’s inside the original cabin where Dickerson allegedly hosted a booze-filled gathering with four underage boys as well as the 15-year-old girl and her 15-year-old friend, according to The Sentinel.
The girl told an FBI agent investigating the case that she was sexually assaulted by Dickerson and the boys while her friend was held inside the bathroom.crime, cruise
