- The Facts:Michael Laney, the 73 year old ex Vice President of the Walt Disney Corporation has been jailed for sexually abusing a 7-year old girl, while being accused of multiple other rape and sexual abuse cases.
- Reflect On:Why is it so hard to find any media coverage of this? Is it because Disney owns many mainstream media outlets and has a close relationship with others? Is it because they old tremendous amounts of power in the media world?
A document obtained from the Multnomah Country District Attorney showed that on May 7th of this year, Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Benjamin Souede found 73-year-old Michael Laney guilty of four counts of sexual abuse in the first degree. Souede also acquitted Laney of three counts of rape in the first degree and three counts of sexual abuse in the first degree.
His trial lasted 6 days, during which the state presented ample evidence showing that a minor female child disclosed that she had been sexually abused by Laney. The document also states that Laney “was a former vice president for the Walt Disney Company.” Initially, the disclosure of the abuse was reported in Washington State, and that’s probably why the Seattle Times picked up on this story, as it didn’t make headlines on many other platforms.
The document goes on to read:
The Portland Police Bureau’s Child Abuse Team was notified and assumed responsibility of the investigation after it was determined that the abuse had occurred within the City of Portland, starting in approximately 2009 when the victim was about seven years of age. The Court found sufficient evidence to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Laney was guilty of repeated sexual abuse involving this particular victim.
While the PPB investigated this particular case, they also learned of other allegations of sexual abuse involving Laney. This wasn’t the first time, but the court found that there was not sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Laney was guilty of those other allegations.
A few months ago, Oregon Live reported that Laney would serve 81 months for four counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

How Surprising Is This? It’s Not The First Time…
This isn’t the first time Walt Disney Co. executives have been implicated in this type of activity. For example, in 2017 Jon Heely, who was Disney’s director of music publishing since 2000, was arraigned on charges of “lewd and lascivious acts” with a child. He was arrested on Nov. 16 by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. He was accused of sexually abusing two girls, one when she was 15 and another when she was 11. Apparently, this investigation is still ongoing, and he is set to see a jury for the second time after the original jury was unable to reach a verdict.
Pedophilia, according to child star Corey Feldman, is one of the biggest problems in Hollywood and apparently, some very powerful people are involved. This is not really a secret anymore, as many from within the industry have spoken out about it, not to mention that multiple examples like the ones cited above also point towards it.
Why don’t more people speak out about it? The common underlying theme is fear. These are some very powerful people. That being said, many do speak out. The latest example might be Former Disney child star Bella Thorne who recently said she was molested from the age of 6-14 and abused all the time. She said that people had no idea about the type of mistreatment she was dealing with while at Disney and that everyone around her saw “and did nothing.” You can see a clip of her speaking about it here.
Is this the price of fame for some? Are some children promised fame and fortune in order to stay quiet? Who knows how deep it goes.
Michael Laney was 73 years old before he had to go to prison, can you imagine how many victims there could have been? Can you imagine what else he was involved in, and who else might have been involved?
While we are on the topic of Disney, it’s also strange that many perverted scenes have popped up for years in their children’s movies. One of the best known examples was when The Rescuers (1977) featured a pair of boobs in a window in the background of one of the scenes. Again, this is well known and very common, so you can find images and clips all over the internet, or from the old tapes if you still have them. Disney has since removed them when the world went to DVD release, and many of these movies were re-released.
So What’s Really Going On Here? Is Something More Sinister Happening?
Based on our research here at Collective Evolution, seemingly small drips like the case of Michael Laney are actually huge. He was the Vice President of Disney! It’s powerful people like this within the entertainment industry as well as politicians, royal families, and people within the Vatican (like recently convicted George Pell) who continue to perpetuate this problem.
Based on our research, there are powerful and massive global pedophile networks within these realms that are heavily involved in satanic ritual abuse, murder, and the trafficking of women and children.
