Accused Child Molester's Disney Trip

BELVIDERE, Ill. (AP) -- An Illinois man free on bond on charges of sexually assaulting three children won't be going to Disney World after all.

A Boone County judge had O-K'd a Florida vacation, but after the story was picked up by the Chicago Sun-Times, the judge sent word that the suspect can't go to the theme park.

One of the conditions of Frank Atherton's bail is that he not have any contact with minors.

Atherton's lawyer says he should be presumed innocent.
