Comcast Says Lewd Cable Installer Wasn’t Their Employee; He Was a Contractor

Phillip Dampier September 21, 2011 Comcast/Xfinity, Consumer News, Video No Comments

A Tampa woman claims that a cable installer who engaged in alleged inappropriate sexual conduct has left her traumatized for life, and she may end up moving to cope with the bad memories that she cannot escape.

Katelyn Breadmore broke her silence Tuesday in an exclusive interview with WWSB-TV in Sarasota-Bradenton, Fla.

Breadmore told the station she has trouble sleeping at night and dreams that the installer is hiding in her closet.

Since Stop the Cap! originally reported this story, new facts have come to light:

Comcast has released a statement indicating the accused installer, Shane Wheatley, is not a Comcast employee.  He is a contractor working for FTS Communications, a third party company hired by Comcast to handle installations and other customer service work.

“We are appalled by the alleged behavior of Mr. Wheatley and can confirm that he is no longer working on any Comcast accounts. Comcast is prepared to cooperate fully with authorities in their investigation if asked,” said Bill Ferry, Regional Vice President of Government Affairs, Comcast Cable.

The Sarasota County’s Sheriff Office also reported Wheatley was charged after a lengthy investigation which included at least one failed lie detector test — a test Wheatley demanded.

A trial date for Wheatley has not yet been announced.
