Former U.N. weapons inspector in Monroe County Court on sex sting charges (Scott Ritter)
Pocono Record ^ | Augf 31, 2010 | David Kidwell

Posted on 09/01/2010 12:25:13 AM PDT by tlb

His lawyers presented Monroe County Court Judge Jennifer Sibum with several motions: to dismiss the case or, failing that, change the venue for a trial that is set to begin next month.

Sibum reserved decision. She is expected to make a ruling next week.

Ritter is charged with contacting who he thought was a 15-year-old girl in an online chat room in February 2009 and starting a sexually based conversation. The “girl” turned out to be a Barrett Township police officer working undercover.

Ritter served as the U.N. chief weapons inspector for seven years, was a harsh critic of the Bush administration's push toward war with Iraq.

Ritter wasn't charged until November 2009 following a lengthy police investigation that involved obtaining court orders for computer and cell phone records.

Ritter faced similar charges in 2001 in New York, but he said in 2003 that those charges were made public to silence his Iraq war criticism. Those charges were dismissed.

He's a sick bastard.

Read the affidavit, they need to lock this clown up for about 20 years.

He's obviously a serial child molester.

Well another True Hero of the Left in his natural element, that of Pervert.
What the Hell happened to this guy? At one time he was thought of more honorably and now the descent into the Abyss.

He’s done this who knows how many times because they let him off after the first bust. I’m sure politics weren’t involved in that decision /s.

I will forever believe he was blackmailed by the Iraqis when he was doing the UN inspections back then. He was supplied with underage girls and secretly filmed. That would explain a lot about his behavior back then. Maybe he will come clean about this to reduce his sentence now.

Wouldn't be the first time someone got their d*** caught in a honey trap.
