Accused Child Rapist Weldon Marc Gilbert Allowed To Watch Kiddie Porn From Jail

Accused Child Rapist Weldon Marc Gilbert

In a report from Washington’s KOMO-TV, an accused child-rapist (former millionaire pilot) is being allowed to screen hours of child pornography from jail, . The Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that Weldon Marc Gilbert, on trial for raping a young boy and producing child pornography, can screen over 100 hours of child porn held as evidence in his case. The court said Gilbert has the right to review the evidence against him because he is acting as his own attorney in the case.

“In my 16 years as a prosecutor, this is one of the most absurd and maddening results I’ve ever heard of, and this is the first time I’m aware of this happening in Pierce County,” Mark Lindquist, a prosecutor in Pierce County, told ABCNews.com.  Gilbert pleaded guilty in federal court in 2009 to producing child pornography, and received a 25-year sentence.  “We don’t want to do it, but we have to follow the law,” Pierce County prosecutor Mark Lindquist said.

Protest Against Supreme Court Decision by Washington Teens

Pawan Walia, Youth Ambassador and spokesperson for young adults throughout the nation, has taken the initiative in the opposing of the recent decision to allow Mr. Gilbert the liberty of viewing the crimes he committed and taped of himself raping these children. Pawan knows many cihldren in his school who suffered the horrors of sexual abuse, and felt compelled to become an activist overnight.

 

The young Mr. Walia piloted the first ever teen picketing demonstration in opposition to the Supreme Court decision along with other youth demonstrators in hopes that the Supreme Court reverse this decision. After posting his message on  his Facebook page, Pawan got more than 15 youths to join his demonstration on July 18, 2011, as well as many more who have contributed to this protest by stating their views on what should be done. As a spokesperson, he wants to deliver a message! As spokesperson, he wants to deliver a message which states “enough is enough and the children will not stand silently, while adults continue to engage in sexual abuse, battery, incest, and other abuses on children”. Pawan has pledged to start a hotline before the end of this month, allowing teens to reach out for unconditional support in a confidential manner.

An alarmingly common trend among pedophiles is to represent themselves (Pro Se), which allows them to cross examine the witnesses, their own victims. This is unfortunately something that is allowed under the constitution, but is a loophole that is abused by the most vicious of criminals. Rabbi Israel Weingarten, was 59 and a resident of Upstate New York when he was convicted in 2009 after a jury trial before U.S. District Judge John Gleeson.His pro se defense was noted for a lengthy, rambling cross-examination of the daughter he had repeatedly raped over a period of seven years, and who he repeatedly brought to tears on the witness stand.

NY Daily News reports, that the exasperated Judge eventually cut him off. “Mr. Weingarten, if anybody is going to admonish the witness it’s going to be me,” he thundered. “You have created a fairly untenable, horrific situation by deciding to represent yourself”. Weingarten wassentenced on May 8, 2009 to 30 years in prison for taking his daughter out of the country to sexually abuse her. He should be punished for further torturing his daughter on the witness stand.
