A former Orlando TSA security officer arrested for allegedly molesting a minor pleaded no contest to one charge today and was sentenced to 10 years' sex-offender probation.
A victim told deputies Bennett asked her to be his sex slave and fondled her against her will. He pleaded no contest to the molestation charge, while prosecutors dropped the second count as part of the plea deal.
Bennett, 58, could have received a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison for the felony.
"Are you satisfied with your attorney?" Orange Circuit Judge Marc Lubet asked Bennett during the sentencing.
"Yes," Bennett replied.
"You certainly should be," Lubet said.
Assistant State Attorney Ryan Williams said the victim in this case did not want to see Bennett go to prison. Williams also said Bennett wanted to take "responsibility for his actions."

The words, “probe” and “sex slave” should not be used in the same sentence...
Justice for all.
Tried the TSA long time ago..couldn’t get in because of a back tax....apparently sexual deviancy doesn’t matter.
This makes me cringe thinking about the airport scanners and the fact you can practically see what your garment tag looks like...
He needs to be shot.
Let me add IMO.
So that's what the kids are calling it these days?
IMO he should be hanged, publicly and his last few minutes struggling as he dangles at the end of the rope televised as a promise to other budding molesters and slavers.
Response:The terms "sex-slave" always remind me of tabloid headlines: i.e. "I Was Bigfoot's Teenage Sex-Slave." I can picture the story; "While stopping only to adjust his colostomy bag Melvin G. told of his year of terror as a homosexual bigfoot's sex-slave......."
Did you miss this part?
“molesting a MINOR”
That was no ‘woman’. It was an ‘underage’ girl!
You call a 12-year-old a “woman”..?
A ‘minor’ is considered to be anyone under the age of ‘consent’. Generally 16 or younger.
The girl was 12!
Welcome to FreeRepublic.
Sorry to disappoint you, but 12-year-olds aren’t considered “women” here. If you’re looking for a hunting ground, I suggest you move on.
so just WHAT amount of touching of a girl's breast by a stranger, employed by our government, or any stranger, is OK? so some is OK? a lot of indecent groping is too much?
how much touching by a stranger would be OK if it were your daughter or wife?
wow. i'm glad YOU are not in charge.
