Isn't there a saying about those who represent themselves in court have a fool for a client?
A man accused of raping young boys and videotaping the incidents asked a judge to allow him to show the recordings to his alleged victims as he prepares to represent himself at trial.
Weldon Marc Gilbert, who is acting as his own attorney but has standby counsel, asked a judge on Monday to allow his lawyer to show the videotapes and interview the alleged victims, ABC News' Seattle affiliate KOMO reported.
Gilbert pleaded guilty to federal sex crimes and is serving a 25-year sentence. The Washington man now faces additional child exploitation charges in Pierce County Court.
