Local News | OK for suspect to view child porn in Tacoma jail | Seattle Times Newspaper.

“A legal loophole is allowing a Washington state man accused of child sex crimes to view child pornography in jail.

Weldon Marc Gilbert is acting as his own lawyer in the case, and that means he’s entitled to review the evidence.

The evidence in the case includes more than 100 videos seized from Gilbert’s Lake Tapps home after his 2007 arrest….. Authorities say some of the footage was shot by Gilbert.”

 

This is sick and disgusting.  My stomach wretches at the thought of this being legal, when it’s not even legal for him to have this in the first place.

    It’s awful, yes. But at the same time, I can’t think of a way to keep him from viewing it without somehow trampling on the ability of people to defend themselves. It’s so perverse, but if you tried to change the system to accommodate this case, it would change the system in general for the worst. 😦
