A sex predator who hired a 15-year-old girl spent years working at The Castle in Muskogee, giving kids hayrides and leading tours according to officials at The Castle.
"We're all about giving somebody a second chance," said Vice-president of The Castle, Matt Hiller.
Darvin Gray did time in 1988 for lewd acts with a minor. The 50-year-old's conviction came one year before the state required sex offenders to register. Hiller hired Gray.
"It was a mistake, I guess," said Hiller.
The attacks happened every weekend for three weeks in 2011.
"He took something from my daughter that she can never get back," said the 15-year-old’s mother.
The teen's mom refused to show her face on camera, but showed us her daughter's prom dress.
She doubts the dress will ever leave the closet, because the 17-year-old is now afraid to leave the house.
"This is supposed to be a haunted theme park, not a real life nightmare," said the teen's stepmom, Autumn Holder.
Holder is haunted by what she doesn't know.
"If he got away with being at the castle, what other kind of monsters is Mr. Hiller exposing kids to," said Holder.
Hiller said more than a dozen officers patrol the park, which is why the teen's family doesn't understand how this could happen.
"I hope he never sleeps at night. I hope it drives him crazy. I hope he loses his mind in those four walls. And if he prays, I hope he prays that no one gets a hold of his kids and grandkids," said Holder.
Gray will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
