A cruise ship employee, who describes himself as a music director of Royal Caribbean, was jailed in Australia for obtaining and accessing child abuse photographs and videos. Forty-four year-old Dana Moran reportedly came to the attention of Australian Border Force officers earlier this year when he flew into Brisbane International Airport. Following a baggage search, at the airport, six electronic devices were found and seized, five of which were later determined to contain almost 600 images and videos depicting child abuse.

Last week, the District Court in Brisbane, Australia sentenced Mr. Moran to 18 months in prison.

Newspapers in Australia published images of Mr. Moran posted from his Facebook and Instagram pages. His Instagram page identifies him as a “Musical Director – Royal Caribbean International.” He was previously employed as a musician (trombone) by Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Cruises among other companies.
