A Lansdale man is sitting in prison, waiting for extradition to Florida to answer a charge of felony video voyeurism of a child under the age of 16, for allegedly photographing an 8-year-old boy in a bathroom stall at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

Joseph Cionzynski, 59, of the 300 block of Perkiomen Avenue, was taken into custody Wednesday by Lansdale Police, a day after Orange County Sheriff’s issued an arrest warrant, according to The Reporter. He was arraigned before District Judge Harold Borek on Wednesday.

According to authorities, Cionzynski allegedly took cell phone photos of the boy from under a partition from an adjacent stall.

The boy could only identify the man by his shoes, police said. When the boy ran out to his mother and told her of the alleged perversion, they identified Cionzynski as the alleged voyeur by his shoes, police said.

The mother confronted Cionzynski, who was escorted out of the bathroom by Animal Kingdom security, police said.

Cionzynski told police the incident was a “misunderstanding” and he was willing to cooperate with them, police said.

While authorities did not find the photos immediately on Cionzynski’s phone, a further investigation did locate the alleged photos, police said. Initially, police allegedly found two photos of male genitalia on Cionzynski’s phone.

Cionzynski, who told authorities he is a Boy Scout leader, is banned from any Walt Disney property, according to The Reporter.

This is a guy who worked on the campaigns of the Friends of Lansdale political group headed by Jack Hansen. Apparently this group loves criminals since two others they supported have been in trouble with the law. Makes you wonder if any of these "Friends" get elected what else might come out about them that would embarrass Lansdale?

Too bad he wasn't a scout leader -- wait, he soon may be.
Jake Mooney August 19, 2013 at 04:21 PM
Aren't we happy that there is an activist movement to forbid banning gay scout leaders? The boys need them so they can "adjust" to modern life styles. The trash just keeps piling up.

^ Re Gay = Pedophile comment above. I can't believe people still try to equate being gay with being a pedophile. Are you a straight male? Yes? So does that mean you want to molest little girls? NO? Then explain to me why someone who prefers males would automatically be "into" little boys? Straight women prefer males, so does that mean they must lust after little boys? Do you get my point yet?! All you homophobes out there need to get a f***in clue that being gay is nowhere near the same as being a pedophile. This comment made by a straight guy who thinks people need to grow the f**k up, get serious, and actually learn what the hell they're talking about before preaching hateful shit against people who don't deserve it.
MikeyParks August 19, 2013 at 04:52 PM
Sorry, but your logic is twisted to your advantage. This guy is a homosexual like you. He likes them young, but he like boys. So I repeat. He's a homosexual. As I wouldn't want men being Girl Scout leaders, I'd prefer not to have homosexuals being Boy Scout leaders. Get your panties in a wad if you want, but right is right.

Ethan.....I worked 30 years in a large law enforcement agency. Ten years of that was as a sex crimes investigator. Of course not all gays are pedophiles, but the percentages are high and real and all your hiding it will not change it. What are your qualifications?
Laura G. August 19, 2013 at 05:05 PM
Jake Mooney, doing custodial work at "a large law enforcement agency" does not make you an expert on gay pedophiles.
Jake Mooney August 19, 2013 at 05:09 PM
Laura...If you call trying to protect children from predators "custodial work", any other comments from you will be considered as brilliant and well thought-out as this one.
Jake Mooney August 19, 2013 at 05:21 PM
Just to set the record straight, I am extremely proud of the straight pedophiles I was able to put away.Common sense has to be used instead of blind activism. Tell me that you would feel OK with sending your young daughter off into the woods with a straight, non-married, childless male.

It is interesting how People in law enforcement fancy themselves psychologist and sociologists. Most men who molest little boys are actually heterosexual. They often have sexual attraction to women, and frequently are married with children, and have no desire to have sex with an adult male. Not that it matters, but there is no evidence that the accused is gay. The male genitalia on his phone could very well be his own. The claims that gays represent a "high" percentage of pedophiles is base on anecdotal experiences and is complete contrary to scientific studies done on this issue.

Bob... You set yourself up as an expert. What are your qualifications?

I hope he gets stabbed in prison

sick f#@*! he should be beat to death.....i live 10 minutes from his house and I have a 9 year old son ......he better move!

Jake Mooney - Please get lost. You call yourself a man of common sense while you clearly need a good dose of it yourself. Stop trying to claim as fact the opinions you formed while you were fetching coffee for the bigwigs at your "large (yet unnamed) law enforcement agency" for 30 years. As for Mr. Cionzynski - he'll have a fun time in jail. There's a reason that most pedophiles are not placed in general population.
