Scott Ritter, former U.N. weapons inspector is going to jail for sex crimes.
The man who couldn’t find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq found a weapon of masturbation in his pants and deployed it on his webcam, thinking the person viewing his personalized pleasure was a 15-year old girl. Sorry, Scotty, it was actually an undercover policewomen.
The Independent UK has the story of the jerk off’s jerk off:
After two days of deliberation the jury in Stroudsburg found Scott Ritter guilty on six of seven counts relating to a conversation he had in a Yahoo internet chat room last year with a vice-squad officer who was masquerading as a 15-year-old girl called Emily. Ritter was released on $25,000 (£15,300) bail pending sentencing next month.
…Neither Ritter nor his lawyers commented after the verdicts were read in court on Thursday evening. Ritter had taken the stand on Tuesday, when he claimed that he hadn’t believed it when he had been told during the chat that “Emily” had been only 15 years old. During the chat Ritter had displayed himself naked and masturbating, via a webcam. A video of the webcam images was shown to jurors.
The prosecutor, Michael Rakaczewski, said Ritter was convicted “by his own actions and by his own words on the stand”. He added that “even though a person may know what they are doing is wrong and maybe are intelligent enough to try to avoid it and get away, sometimes the internal drive to engage in these types of deviant sexual behaviours is just too strong.” He said that Pennsylvania had passed new laws enabling officers to try to catch perpetrators such as Ritter.
For some reason, the left is uncharacteristically quiet about this. Odd, considering how they hung on Ritter’s every word when he was a U.N. Arms Inspector and called George W. Bush a liar.
