A 15-year-old teen girl claims she was gang raped by an adult male and a group of underage boys during a Carnival Cruise. According to the unnamed teenager, another Carnival Cruise passenger supplied her and a group of minor boys with alcohol and then “led” the gang rape.
Casey Dickerson of Casselberry, Florida was arrested on charges relating to the alleged gang rape of the 15-year-old teenager on the Carnival Sensation cruise ship, the New York Daily News reports. Casey Dickerson was traveling with his wife and denies engaging in the gang rape of the teen girl but did admit to providing alcohol to the group of minors on the Carnival Sensation, the Orlando Sentinel notes. Dickerson reportedly refused to discuss what happened in the room where the alcohol was shared with minors.
Carnival Cruise staffers allowed Casey Dickerson and his wife to relocate to a new cabin after the couple complained about noise, but they were also allowed to keep the original room. The Dickerson’s first Cruise Sensation cabin is where the alleged gang rape of the 15-year-old teen girl occurred.
The alleged victim, a friend, and four minor boys allegedly gathered in the Dickerson spare cabin for a “booze-filled” gathering. The 15-year-old girl reportedly told FBI agents she was raped by Dickerson and the boys while her friend was held inside the Carnival Cruise cabin bathroom. The victim also maintains the minor boys answered a knock at the door at some point during the alleged gang rape.
The alleged gang rape victim and her friend were reportedly allowed to leave later in the evening. The 15-year-old teenager visited the Carnival Cruise medical aid center for an evaluation. Casey Dickerson reportedly told FBI agents he had engaged in sex with other women during the Carnival Sensation cruise but denies the alleged gang rape victim was one of them. The minor boys have not yet been charged in the alleged Carnival Cruise gang rape, but the investigation is ongoing.
