A federal grand jury indicted a Florida man arrested for participating in and encouraging the gang rape of a 15 year old girl on a Carnival cruise ship last month. The grand jury indicted Casey Dickerson on sexual abuse charges Wednesday for engaging in the rape of a girl in a cabin on the Carnival Sensation cruise ship.
The victim told the FBI that she and a friend went to Dickerson’s cabin with him and four other boys. She said that Dickerson and the boys held her down and took turns raping her.
Dickerson denies the charges but said he was drunk and didn’t know when anything got "sexual."
The case demonstrates the danger of free flowing cruise booze and the danger to minors of sexual assault on cruise ships.
The good thing, if there is such a thing, about this case is that the FBI actually made an arrest and there will be a federal prosecution – which is rare.
