The Florida Department of Law Enforcement busted 48-year old Robert Kendel for working as a Santa-For-Hire despite being a registered sex offender. Deputies found ads posted on Craigslist of Kendel offering his services as Santa with a photo of him dressed as Santa with a child on his lap.
Robert Kendel was labeled as a registered sex offender after sexually assaulting a child under age 12 back in 1993. An investigator posed as someone interested in hiring Kendel for an event. He was then arrested upon arriving at the staged party.
He was wearing his full costume of a red suit, black boots, and a fake white beard.
