SANFORD, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A 49-year old pastor and former Disney employee was caught last month looking at child porn while on the job, authorities said.

Cedric Cuthbert made his first appearance before an Orange County judge Wednesday and bonded out of jail that night.

He was arrested Tuesday on child pornography charges.

Deputies stated computer forensics revealed that, between downloading pornographic videos, Cuthbert also logged onto his personal email and typed a sermon that he planned to deliver at the St. James AME Church in Sanford.

A spokesperson for Disney told FOX 35 that they reported Cuthbert's inappropriate Internet activity to investigators, stating, "We have controls in place that make us aware of this activity and we contacted law enforcement." Cuthbert was a manager at Disney's Port Orleans resort.

When asked about the allegations, Cuthbert admitted to investigators that he viewed the video several times and that he knew how old the girl was. He also admitted to looking at several other videos of girls "in the same age range" on his home computer, investigators say.

Court documents show that Cuthbert wrote an apology letter to his employees at Disney. The pastor is now being held without bond.
