Guilty GR Man Claims To Identify As An 8-Year-Old Girl
The main reason to make such a claim? He was found with a computer full of child porn.
WZZM-13 is reporting Thursday that a man arrested and convicted of possessing pornography on his computer involving small children says he is an eight year old girl inside.
Joseph Gobrick, 45, also claims the images were computer generated and are protected by the First Amendment.
“I’ve always been an 8-year-old girl,’’ Gobrick said at sentencing. “And even my drawings and fantasies, I am always an 8-year-old girl.’’
Okay. I may be going out on a limb here, but being or even identifying as an eight year old doesn't make it okay to possess or look at child porn. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's illegal for them to have it, as well. So, nice try.
Kent County Assistant Prosecutor Daniel Helmer called Gobrick “a danger to the public.’’
From the WZZM-13 report:
“Even during the trial, the defendant continued to draw, talking about raping babies in the Kent County Jail and making other statements about how this is his constitutional right to continue to do so," Helmer said.
Kent County Circuit Court Judge Paul Denenfeld recently sentenced Gobrick to between 10 and 20 years in prison.
“Based on everything he’s said and done, including bragging about what he was drawing in his cell, he obviously doesn’t think child sexually abusive material is wrong,’’ Denenfeld said. “This isn’t just virtual stuff; this is also real people being harmed.’’
Gobrick also argued that under the law, 'Auschwitz was legal.'
Again, that didn't make it right. Stop already.
