Royal Caribbean employee indicted on sex abuse charges with teenage girl
Records show that a 25-year-old Royal Caribbean employee has been indicted on charges of sexually abusing a minor after allegations arose that he had sex with a teenage girl aboard Royal Caribbean's Enchantment Of The Seas, which sailed out of Baltimore on December 17.
The victim told police that she was alone on the deck of the ship when she met the man, Fabian Palmer, and he took her into a men's locker room where he began having sex with her. He was stopped when another employee knocked on the door.
Video cameras captured "the likeness of Palmer," the victim, and the second employee outside the locker room around the same time that the victim said the abuse occurred, records show. Palmer was interviewed by Royal Caribbean employees and admitted having sex with the girl, but said he believed she was 16, records show. He was indicted on one count of sex abuse of a minor on Jan. 11.
