Former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter was sentenced to 1 ½ to 5 ½ years for sending sexually explicit messages and exposing his genitalia on a web cam to a police detective posing as a 15-year-old girl in an online adult chat room.
The former U.N. weapons inspector with the predilection for underage girls was convicted on six counts, including unlawful contact with a minor. He will remain at the Monroe County Correctional Facility in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, until it is decided where he will serve his sentence.
“He is not able to manage his offending in the community despite sex offender treatment.”—Paula Brust, Pennsylvania’s Sexual Offenders Assessment Board member
Monroe County Judge Jennifer Sibum rejected Ritter’s request for a new trial. The judge also refused to grant bond and defer sentencing until his appeal is heard.
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way outta line
Better run, girl
You’re much too young, girl
With all the charms of a woman,
You’ve kept the secret of your youth
You led me to believe you’re old enough
To give me love
And now, it hurts to know the truth

Once, Twice, Three Times a Young Lady
By Jerry A. Kane
Scott Ritter, former chief United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991-98 who wanted President George W. Bush impeached for his “murderous” war policy, has gone and done it once more. The mainstream media’s Bush-bashing, America trashing critic of the Iraq War has been charged yet again with soliciting an underage girl.
This time the ole weasel wanker was arrested in a Pennsylvania sex sting last November for allegedly masturbating over a webcam while conversing in an Internet chat room with an undercover cop posing as a 15-year-old girl.
The police affidavit gives the following account:
Officer Ryan Venneman was posing as 15-year-old “Emily” in an online chat room when he was contacted by someone using the name “Delmarm4fun.” This person, later identified as Ritter, told “Emily” he was a 44-year-old male from Albany, N.Y.
“Emily” told Ritter she was a 15-year-old girl from the Poconos, at which point Ritter asked for a picture other than the one “Emily” had posted on her account. Ritter then sent her a link to his Web camera and began to masturbate on camera.
“Emily” asked Ritter for his cell phone number, which he provided.
Ritter again asked “Emily” how old she was. Told she was 15, Ritter said he didn’t realize she was 15 and turned off his webcam, saying he didn’t want to get in trouble.
Ritter told “Emily” he had been fantasizing about having sex with her, to which she replied: “Guess you turned it off …”
Ritter then said: “You want to see it finish,” reactivated his webcam and continued masturbating and ejaculated on camera.
A Barrett Township Police Department press release pointed out that this wasn’t the first time the alleged self-abuser had been arrested for such behavior. In June 2001, Scott the Snot was arrested and charged with “attempted endangerment of the welfare of a child,” a Class B misdemeanor.
At that time the alleged meat puppeteer had hooked up with an undercover cop posing as a 16-year-old girl through a chat room conversation and arranged to meet her at a Burger King in Colonie, a suburb of Albany, so she could witness first-hand his champion chicken-choking skills.
However, the case was dismissed and the record sealed. It was reported at the time that Ritter was given an “adjournment in contemplation of dismissal,” (ACOD), which meant the case was adjourned for six months and if he stayed out of trouble the charge would be dropped and expunged from the record, as if it never happened.
According to news reports, Albany’s district attorney, Paul Clyne, fired the assistant DA because of mishandling the case.
“Cases involving adults soliciting minors over the Internet are not the kind of cases which should be handled by adjourning them in contemplation of dismissal,” Clyne said.
In addition, the New York Post reported that Ritter also had been caught in another similar incident in April 2001involving a 14-year-old girl, but he was not formally charged.
The teenie bopper chat-smith a.k.a. “Delmarm4fun” (Ritter lives in Delmar, a suburb of Albany, New York), apparently developed his fondness for young girls during the previous Administration, which makes his alleged pedophile preponderances, as any leftist defender of the indefensible will readily admit, Bush’s fault.
The former United States Marine Corps Major has written two books: Frontier Justice: Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Bushwhacking of America and Endgame: Solving the Iraq Problem Once and For All.
Ritter waived his December 17 preliminary hearing and is out on $25,000 bail. Attempts to reach his attorney have been unsuccessful.
