Posted on 10/29/2007 4:25:44 PM PDT by Malacoda
Former Boy Scout troop leader David Mayberry was sentenced for having unprotected sex with a 14-year-old boy.
Mayberry, 52, committed the crime knowing he was HIV-positive.
A teary Mayberry cried in court when he saw the more than a dozen family members and friends there to support him.
The Montgomery County man, a former Boy Scout leader, admitted to soliciting a 14-year-old online. The two met in a parking lot where the boy performed a sex act on Mayberry.
Prosecutors said the crime was made more horrific because Mayberry is HIV-positive and he knew his health status when he met his victim.
"Mr. Mayberry is a classic child predator, plus. He is classic because he wants to have sex with children but he is also HIV-positive. He's given a potential death sentence to the victim here," the prosecutor said.
Mayberry was arrested in November 2005 by state agents who said he met a 12-year-old online and arranged to meet that child for sex. But Mayberry was actually chatting with agents from a state task force, officials said.
It was through that investigation that investigators learned of the 14-year-old boy.
Mayberry was sentenced to 16 to 40 years.
The judge told Mayberry he was absolutely justified in handing down the sentence and said Mayberry didn't care about the child or his health, just his own needs.
Mayberry pointed to the victim as the sexual aggressor but there was no evidence to support that, the prosecutor said.
Mayberry's mother, sister and church community members testified to his good character in court. His defense attorneys refused comment, as did his family.
The judge told Mayberry he didn't buy his claims of remorse.
The victim's mother was also in court Monday. She did not want to comment but called the sentence "wonderful."
Disgusting. And the perv even tried to blame the boy!
“Former Boy Scout troop leader David Mayberry was sentenced for having unprotected sex with a 14-year-old boy.”
But the left queers whine and cry about not having access to our young via the Boy Scouts.....I cannot imagine WHY we would have a problem with that!
“Mayberry was sentenced to 16 to 40 years.”
Not nearly enough.
If the victim ends up HOV positive and dies of AIDS, the SOB perpetrator should be tried again for murder.
“Mayberry pointed to the victim as the sexual aggressor”
He’s already got aids. I wish there were a slower and more painful way for this bass tard to die.
He and his parents should sue the ACLU and other organizations who orchestrated this policy. I don’t care if they have no case. I would sue them until hell froze over. They’d get a new lawsuit from me every week. I’d find out who the individuals were who worked for the ACLU on those cases, and sue them individually as well. I’d sue the judges. I’d sue every government official who had anything to do with the policies that resulted in this situation.
Cry me a river .... please
One less democrat party activist on the streets. Hillary has one more vote she will need to fake.

For seventy years or more the Scouts have been working to prevent this sort of thing. But they are up against a zeigeist that refuses to look reality in the eye. It used to be that the Scouts would ask these guys quietly just to clear out, or get prosecuted. But recently they have become brazen, sure that public opinion will back their “right” to consort with boys and pick out victims. The wierd think is that the public rages at the Catholics bishops for not getting rid of “pedophile” priests and raves at the Scouts for getting rid of pedophile scoutmasters. Lunacy.
Ironically, this happened right in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area. Philadelphia is the city that wants to kick out the Boy Scouts because the Boy Scouts specifically do not want homosexuals taking little boys off into the woods. Philadelphia thinks the idea of homos taking little boys off into the woods is a wonderful idea.
Yes they do. We need someone with a spine of steel to shove the ‘gay agenda’ where the sun don’t shine.
Even better...they acted as character witnesses for him! AUGH, these cases make me want to scream.
Why does the judge think he must justify the sentence to this predatory faerie?
