TACOMA, Wash. — A wealthy Bonney Lake, Wash., pilot who used money, alcohol and manipulation to molest more than a dozen boys has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Weldon Marc Gilbert, who worked as a pilot for UPS, was sentenced Monday in Tacoma by U.S. District Judge Benjamin Settle.
In a sentencing memo, prosecutors wrote that the 49-year-old Gilbert remains "incapable of real remorse" for the damage he did to at least 17 boys as young as 10.
Gilbert tearfully apologized during the sentencing hearing. He earlier pleaded guilty to production of child pornography, transporting a minor across state lines for illegal sexual activity and obstruction of justice.
Under the plea agreement, a helicopter, two cars, a float plane, a boat and some property belonging to Gilbert will be forfeited and sold, with the proceeds placed in a fund for the victims.

From what I've heard, prison has it's own code of ethics and child molesters aren't revered well...

You'll recall what happened to Jeffrey Dahmer. John Holmes would be a party compared to his fate..

As a former Corrections Officer, you are correct. Either he will be in a facility with other sex offenders, or protective custody. In gen pop (general population) he will be dead within a month.

Of the three, what is the process to determine where they spend their jail time?

Severity of the offense, the offender's age, previous history of repeat offenses, educational background and type of offense., length of sentence. 25 years? he will not be eligible for min securtiy. He is doing Federal Time. The Feds won't think twice of putting white collar offenders in Atlanta USP or Marion USP with violent offenders.
When I worked for DOC in NC, there were institutions strictly for sex offenders, or geriatrics or people with mental or physical challenges.

Ok I'll ask. What does the wealthy part have anything to do with it? Don't people already know pilots make 500,000 dollars a year?

Dahmer had protection, look how well that worked for him. Snitches are at the top of the list of food for consumption while most correction officers know who runs the show, its not the states.

You guys fail to see the real silver lining here...

There's another spot open at UPS. Every inch counts (pun intended, both for our careers and his sodomy fate in jail).

Dahmer refused protective custody, making him an open target. He was attacked twice prior to getting whacked.
We know who runs the show, the cons run the prison, the COs just supervised them.
