Retired Florida Teacher Dale Chisena, Sentenced to 30 Years for Traveling to Kentucky for Sexual Relations with Two Juveniles

U.S. District Judge Karen Caldwell sentenced 60-year-old Dale Chisena for interstate travel to engage in sex with a person under 12 years of age. "I'm pleased to say that my Cybercrimes Investigators working with the U.S. Attorney's Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement have taken another child predator off of the streets," General Conway said.

Chisena admitted that in July of 2011 he engaged in numerous online chats with a person he thought was the mother of nine and 11-year-old daughters. In reality, Chisena was talking to one of General Conway's cybercrimes investigators working undercover. Chisena was indicted on federal charges in April of 2011. According to his plea agreement, Chisena explained in detail his intentions to engage in sexual acts with the mother and her two daughters.

"Mr. Chisena had every intention of sexually exploiting young children," said U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey. "We were fortunate that he was chatting with an undercover officer and not vulnerable children."

On February 4, 2011, Chisena flew from Florida to Lexington. He was arrested shortly after arriving at Bluegrass Airport by investigators from General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit. Chisena had brought gifts for the girls and other items that indicated his intention to perform sexual acts on the girls.

The investigation was conducted by the Attorney General's office and the FBI. The U.S. Attorney's Office was represented in the case by its Fort Mitchel Branch Office.

Since its creation in June of 2008, General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit has launched more than 270 child pornography investigations and seized more than 300.000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet.
