More than 100 people were recently arrested during “Operation March Sadness 2,” a six-day undercover operation that led to the arrest of child predators and people seeking to engage prostitution, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.

According to a press release, a 27-year-old man named Xavier Jackson was arrested after communicating with an undercover detective who had been pretending to be a 14-year-old girl — he “sent [the detective] sexual images and graphic descriptions of what he wanted to do,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd noted during a news conference that the Jackson worked as a lifeguard at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Shannon Johnson, a 41-year-old man who thought he was communicating with a 13-year-old girl, sent a naked picture of himself and went to a home with the plan to engage in sexual activity, according to the press release, which noted that Johnson was arrested.

Also among the 108 people arrested was Daniel Peters, a retired Cook County Illinois judge who was charged with soliciting a prostitute. “He requested an attorney,” Judd said during the news conference. “Well judge, you need an attorney, you got problems.”

“The arrests of a human trafficker and four child predators alone makes this whole operation worthwhile,” Judd said, according to a statement included in the press release. “The on-line prostitution industry enables traffickers and victimizes those who are being trafficked. Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and find and arrest those who are profiting from the exploitation of human beings. Johns fuel the trafficking and victimization. Where there is prostitution, there is exploitation, disease, dysfunction, and broken families.”
