Weldon Marc Gilbert is in court this morning to argue his motion to represent himself against child-sex crimes charges filed in Pierce County Superior Court.
Gilbert, a wealthy Lake Tapps pilot, was sentenced last year to federal prison after he pleaded guilty to more than 30 child-sex crimes. He still faced charges in Pierce County, however.
He filed a motion last month to represent himself in state court. Read Adam’s story about the motion here.
Adam is in court for the hearing and will report what happens.
