Retired Teacher Pleads Guilty to Traveling to Have Sex with Child

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) _ A retired Florida school teacher has pleaded guilty to traveling to Kentucky to have sex with children.

Dale Chisena entered a plea Monday to one count of interstate travel to engage in sex with a person under 12 years of age.

Attorney General Jack Conway, U.S. Attorney Kerry B. Harvey and FBI Special Agent in Charge Perrye Turner announced the plea.

The 60-year-old Chisena thought he was exchanging electronic messages with the mother of girls who were 9 and 11 years old.

Instead, he was communicating with a cybercrime investigator in Conway’s office.

Authorities said Chisena is a retired second-grade teacher from Orange County, Florida.

He was arrested on February 4, 2011, at Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport.

Sentencing is set for June 14 in Lexington federal court.
