June 2, 2012 Cruise Ship Sexual Assault / Rape Law

NCL Rape Lawyer.jpgSenad Djedovic, a former assistant cruise director for Norwegian Cruise Lines, pled guilty to possessing child pornography depicting a cruise passenger. The once NCL employee faces as much as 10 years in prison for having photos of an underage girl he had sex with on the NORWEGIAN STAR cruise ship.

Court records reveal the assistant cruise director had sex with a 16-year-old female passenger on the cruise ship after it departed for a seven day cruise from Tampa in January. A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida reads, “After the minor departed the vessel, Djedovic began exchanging emails with her. In a series of emails spanning several weeks, Djedovic commented about her age and asked the minor to send him sexually explicit photos of herself”. The NORWEGIAN STAR’S assistant cruise director showed the photographs to fellow crewmembers and told them she was a minor. The government’s statement further revealed, “A search of Djedovic’s personal computers revealed additional videos and images of minors engaging in explicit sexual activity.” Dejedovic worked for Norwegian Cruise Lines from 2006 through early March 2012.
