Cruise Ship Sexual Assault: Carnival Bartender Gets Three Years For Raping Fourteen Year Old Passenger

In May, we reported the arrest of a 30 year old bartender who was arrested after sexually assaulting a 14 year old passenger cruising with her parents on Carnival's Freedom cruise ship - Carnival Cruise Ship Bartender Arrested On Charges Of Raping 14 Year Old Passenger.  

Today a Federal District Court Judge in Orlando sentenced cruise ship bartender, Hery KrispiyantoHery Krispiyanto - Carnival Bartender Rape , to over three years and to pay about $4,360 in restitution. 

The Orlando Sentinel covered the story in an article "Cruise Bartender Sentenced to Prison for Teen's Rape."

The minor girl told investigators that she was alone on the upper deck of the cruise ship when crew member Krispiyanto walked up behind her, grabbed her arm and pulled her into a nearby employee-only room and closed the door. The incident occurred in April 2009 and the girl told her parents in August.  Sexual assaults of minors on cruise ships are often not reported right away due to embarrassment.

Sexual assault of children is something the cruise lines like to keep secret.  We have discussed other cases before and you can read them about here.
