PHOENIXA food service worker at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) has been arrested on suspicion of child pornography charges.

Detectives say he told them his job was to deliver food to rooms at the hospital. They say he denied ever trying to take photos or videos of the children or have sexual contact with them.

The hospital says he is employed by Sodexo, which has a contract with PCH.

Police say Allbritton acknowledged he has sexual fantasies about minors.

“If you post the bond, I am ordering that you be supervised by pre-trial services in the community and that they install electronic monitoring on you prior to your release. If you do post that bond, I’m also ordering that you may not have contact with any of the arresting officers, not to have contact with any minors. You’re prohibited from accessing the internet through any electronic means, except for work, school or contacting your legal counsel,” a judge said.

He asked if he could still play video games.

The judge replied, “I am ordering that you may not access the internet through any electronic means. As long as it is not internet-capable, that should be fine.”

The judge set his bond at $100,000.

FOX 10 reached out to Sodexo for more information regarding Allbritton’s employment.

It said, “The safety and security of Phoenix Children’s patients and staff is our top priority. Sodexo is cooperating with the Phoenix Police Department and as of July 1, 2024, the employee has been placed on unpaid administrative leave and faces termination, pending the investigation.”
