A jury tonight found Michael C. Chartrand not guilty of molesting a 13-year-old girl when he was dressed as the Tigger character at Walt Disney World. Chartand was found not guilty of misdemeanor battery and lewd and lascivious molestation, a felony charge. He faced 15 years in prison if convicted.
"What do you mean you hope they do the right thing."
1. Give the job back 2. Full back pay 3. Reimburse for his defense costs!
#3 seems like it may be a legit option. He was working on Disney property and fulfiling his job description when the alleged events took place. It seems logical that Disney should take some responsibility. IMO!
He has gotten his job back He will be costumed but not neccessarly tigger.The one thing not mentioned this is a union job.So they had to give back pay and bennies.*** This post was edited by kevin38 8/7/2004 9:29:07 AM ***
