Another person who claims he was sexually abused by Weldon Marc Gilbert has sued the millionaire Lake Tapps pilot for damages.
“John Doe” filed a civil suit against Gilbert last week in Pierce County Superior Court.
The plaintiff claims he was a minor when Gilbert offered him rides in his boat and gave him part-time jobs in an effort to gain his trust.
Gilbert used that trust to “engage in batteries by spanking and paddling plaintiff John Doe,” the lawsuit states. The plaintiff also claims he was sexually abused.
He asks for damages for physical injuries and emotional distress.
Another alleged victim sued Gilbert in December 2007, making similar accusations.
Gilbert is charged with more than 30 crimes in federal court. He is scheduled to go to trial in April.
