Wendy's Drive-Thru Worker, Juan Antonio Rosa, Gets Nearly 22 Years For Selling Child Porn



For most people, "Scooby Doo" conjures up images of the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon series. But for a Wendy's drive-thru attendant, it was a code word that his customers used to order child pornography, hidden in fries.

On Wednesday, Juan Antonio Rosa, 36, was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison for distributing child pornography. The father of two young daughters used his job as a Wendy's drive-thru attendant to sell memory cards filled with child porn to people he allegedly met online through social networking sites, according to The Associated Press.

Rosa then instructed his customers to say "Scooby Doo" or "sh*t on a stick" on the speaker as they drove through his northwest San Antonio Wendy's. He proceeded to place the memory sticks, for which he charged $50 each, in a carton of fries. They each contained between two to five videos.

"It kind of gives new meaning to, 'Would you like fries with that?'" Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Thompson told the U.S. District Court.

For its part, Wendy's International Inc. distanced itself from the scheme.

"I can tell you the San Antonio franchisee has no knowledge of the incident," said Wendy's spokeswoman Andrea Winans in a statement to the press. "They have no information or any police report of this incident occurring at a Wendy's there."

But Rosa's track record in child pornography had already been established by the time he was hired by Wendy's in 2010. He began working for Wendy's shortly after serving jail time for a previous child porn conviction, according to news reports. He was apprehended in this most recent incident after child porn reportedly was found on his home computers in Converse, Texas.

Rosa's conviction comes amid a series of incidents involving workers at eating establishments throughout the South. In a separate case in San Antonio on Wednesday, 58-year old Ernest Zapata was sentenced to 51 years for selling heroin to customers at his restaurant, Anna's Cafe. His patrons used the code word of "chiva" to order to get the heroin, according to the San Antonio Express.

And as was reported on AOL Jobs, former McDonald's drive-through attendant Kristy Perez was given three years probation and 100 hours of community service on June 26 by the Florida courts for a 2010 incident in which she physically assaulted customers while hurling homophobic epithets at them. Ryan Snyder, one of the men involved in the incident, received a black eye and is currently seeking at least $15,000 damages from Perez and McDonald's in a civil suit.

The old saying is that "It takes two".......there has to be a buyer in order for a seller to exist!

The buyers are the ones who want the product, the sellers merely sleezy dirty salesmen. Kind of like the pimp and the John relationship!

I can't stop laughing at the fact that I have been at this Wendy's before. It's about 5 miles away and yes I did use the drive thru. **washing mouth out with vodka**

This subhuman is not smart enough to get a higher education, which would most likely would translate in a better paying job than drive-thru attendant, aaaaaah, but he is smart enough to plan evil activities. Without any hesitation I would sentence this garbage to death.

I am sorry, but the judicial system is not to blame for the evil in the heart of this SOB. We society are to blame because we do not demand in unison the death penalty for these bastards ALL the time. We have so many bleeding hearts that the system only reacts to our wishes. If all of us would demand justice and if we did not get it we would throw the elected people out of office the end result would be different. People in office are not stupid, they know what they have to do to get re-elected, they have their fingers in the pulse of the people and know what we want.

I am guessing he's an illegal too! Send him to the country he came from and let them convict him there and rot.

Wendy's has poor customer service due to slow service, slightly unhappy employees that rarely smile with a positive greeting when food is ordered. The main reason why i do not eat at wendys is because they charge customers for refilling sodas and when i do go to get a refill i have to wait in line again, have my cup double handled and have open up my wallet again for the refill costs then clean my hands before returning to eat the rest of my wends food.

Hi Patty

Lowlife! Wendy's hired this guy knowing he had a child porn conviction? If they did not know, why not? Doesn't Wendy's do a background check? Disgusting!

ROFL! I'm laughing at your comment. This is ******* wendy's, when they just make minimum wage **** jobs. Most of those workers are on parole, anyways. Mess with them, and they will spit in your food.
