Man Convicted of Taking Unauthorized Topless Photo of Girlfriend

by ARLnow.com | October 11, 2012 at 12:35 pm | 10,889 views | 249 Comments

An Arlington man has been found guilty of “unlawful filming,” a Class 1 misdemeanor, after taking an unauthorized topless photo of his now-ex girlfriend while she was sleeping.

A jury sentenced Trevor Frye, 28, to 40 days in the Arlington County jail and a $2,500 fine. A judge is expected to finalize the sentencing at a hearing on Dec. 7.

Frye was acquitted on a separate charge of unlawful entry. He had been accused of entering his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and knocking on her bedroom door in the middle of the night, while intoxicated.

At trial, the victim testified that Frye emailed her the topless photo of herself — sleeping in Frye’s bed — following an argument, according to prosecutors. The photo, which was apparently taken with a cell phone, was presented as evidence at the trial. The victim testified that she had a conversation with Frye, prior to the photo being taken, in which she said she specifically said she didn’t want him to take such photos of herself.

Frye, who is not a lawyer, represented himself at trial, according to Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Josh Katcher, who prosecuted the case.

The case attracted significant attention following an ARLnow.com article in May. Though public interest seemed disproportionate to the nature of the alleged crimes, in a statement issued to ARLnow.com Katcher said there’s a larger lesson to be learned from the case.

[Commonwealth's Attorney] Theo [Stamos] has made it clear that these cases are not to be taken lightly, especially because one isolated incident of unlawful filming can lead to a lifetime of anxiety. One unauthorized picture on the internet is all it takes. And you have to keep it mind, once it’s out there, there is very little we can do to get it back. The genie is out of the bottle. It’s a bell that can never be unrung.

The victim in this case will spend the rest of her life worrying that the picture Mr. Frye unlawfully took will make it onto the internet. Can you imagine if every time you applied for a job, met a significant other’s family, or made a new friend, you had to worry about them looking you up on the internet and finding a topless picture. I think it was that sentiment that caused the jury to impose 40 days [in jail] and the [maximum] fine.

This is a great result.  It sends a strong signal to the community that this type of behavior won’t be tolerated.

I have a feeling that we will see more prosecutions for this type of crime as social media becomes more intertwined with our lives, especially considering the ease with which a picture can now be snapped and sent via a smart phone.

Katcher credited Arlington County police officer Melinda Wood and detectives James Stone and Dan Gillenwater for helping to make the case against Frye.

“Without their tireless effort, a tough case would have been impossible, and a criminal would have gone free,” he said.

    • Questions

      Is no one else confused that Trevor was arrested for Stalking/B&E/ and unlawful filming but only convicted of one? And to boot, the article says that the picture was taken in his room not at his ex’s apartment. So he didn’t break in to his ex’s place or stalk her and she was at his apartment when the picture was taken? None of this makes sense to me

      • sunflower

        i wondered when it said she was “sleeping in frye’s bed” but i was waiting for someone else to sort it out. guess they’d rather argue than get the facts!

    “public interest seemed disproportionate to the nature of the alleged crimes”… so ArlNow is going to make sure to humiliate this guy again by reposting his unflattering mugshot and stirring up more public interest.

    Makes sense.

    Or maybe the text would have sufficed.

    • John Fontain

      Yeah, it’s not like his crime is the actual cause of any humiliation he may experience, right?

      • drax

        Which crime, John? He was acquitted of one.

        • John Fontain

          drax, seriously? did you not even read the article? or even the headline?

          • ArLater

            Dont feed.

          • drax

            Yes, did you?

            He was acquitted of one of the two charges.

            My point is, as it always was, that people are innocent until proven guilty. Good thing he wasn’t acquitted of both charges, or you’d have some apologizing to do. In fact, if you taunted him about the one he was acquitted of, maybe you should apologize now.

            He’s not guilty until he’s found guilty. That’s all.

          • LOL!

            John’s point was that he was convicted of the crime in the HEADLINE of the article, so it should have been obvious what he is referring to. Why are you even bringing up the second charge?

          • drax

            This refers to an earlier dispute I had with John, LOL.

            I simply said that one is innocent until proven guilty. Not a hard concept.

          • jackson

            But… he was found guilty.

          • drax

            of one charge. He was found not guilty of the other charge.

            So, gee, it’s possible for someone to be not guilty after they are accused of a certain crime. Big concept.

          • jackson

            But he WAS found guilty of the other! It doesn’t allow you to point fingers and say “See! I’m vindicated! He was innocent!”

          • drax

            I didn’t say that though, Jackson.

          • jackson

            I’m not sure what you’re saying.

          • drax

            I’m saying people should be considered innocent until proven guilty.

            Not exactly controversial.

          • http://purple.com/purple.html Major Pup McPuppo

            acquitted on unlawful entry, yeah.

  • drax

    Wait, he was found not guilty of something? But he was accused of it! How is that possible?

    • Mary-Austin

      Yea there’s no way he could have done both. Only people who are found guilty of all charges are guilty.

      • drax

        Well, no, Mary-Austin, he can be guilty of one and not guilty of the other.

      Unauthorized topless photo, used to taunt someone. I’d give him 40 days too.

    • What?

      Or not to violate your girlfriend and act like a degenerate a–hole. Did you read Theo Stamos’ explanation of why he received the punishment he got?

      • SomeGuy

        Or to get signed and notarized permission before taking risque pictures of your girlfriend in case there’s a he-said/she-said allegation waiting for you down the road.

        • Resident

          You know he sent her the picture… betting that the did not resist the urge to add his sentiments with the picture… which is why it was not a he said/she said case. It was a he did it to be an ahole case.

          • SomeGuy

            I neither know, nor purport to know, any more about this case than I’ve seen reported.

          • jackson

            He was found guilty. You can stop speculating on whether or not he’s innocent.

          • SomeGuy

            Did you read somewhere that I speculated?

          • jackson

            “Or to get signed and notarized permission before taking risque pictures of your girlfriend in case there’s a he-said/she-said allegation waiting for you down the road.”

            Based on the fact that this is the comment section on a story about a man convicted of taking “risque pictures of his girlfriend,” yes, I read that as you speculating about the case, rather than giving general advice to anyone who may take topless photos of someone in the future.

            Forgive me if you were saying “Let this be a lesson to all you budding photographers…”

          • SomeGuy

            I’m still not seeing which part of that would make you think I was speculating about his verdict.

          • John Fontain

            someguy said: “I’m still not seeing which part of that would make you think I was speculating about his verdict.”

            maybe describing the situation today, after knowing the verdict, as merely a ‘he-said/she-said allegation.’

          • SomeGuy

            From the article:
            “The victim testified that she had a conversation with Frye, prior to the photo being taken, in which she said she specifically said she didn’t want him to take such photos of herself.”

            I contend that it’s wise for people to have notarized permission for such things so that testimony about undocumented conversations can be supported or refuted. Again, tell me which part of that would prompt jackson to write, “You can stop speculating on whether or not he’s innocent.”

    • Questions

      Brofile, his sentence has not been imposed and is under investigation. This guy beat 3 of the 4 against the charges brought against him by the commonwealth including a felony. Also it should be noted that the unlawful filming charge was amended by the Commonwealth to a date of 12/30/2011 not the date of his arrest. So what lesson is to be learned here?

      • SomeGuy

        We need to shorten the statute of limitations on unlawful filming?

  • BrosForLife

    Yo Bro! I loved the ‘”Pics or it Didn’t Happen” DeFeNsE. Too bad bad they had the pic. Must have been a great day for the judge, ami right?

    • Sherriff Gonna Getcha

      no, shes not that hot.

  • Scott

    Is any of that 40 days time suspended? Often in misdemeanor convictions the sentence is daunting but with a bunch of suspended time. So maybe they give someone 40 days but 35 days of which is suspended which he’d only serve if he f’d up again. Also how did he manage to get acquitted on the on unlawful entry charge?

  • Dr_Klahn

    In support of Trev’s legal fund, the ATown Brahwery will be offering a limited edition suitcase with 40 cans instead of the usual 24.

    • Dr_K

      Oh, and those are 40 *40-oz* cans btw, and it comes with a coupon for a free slice – this is a proper suitcase meant for real brahs

  • Glenn

    You guys need to give Trevor a break. He was probably extremely drunk at the time that he did that and was barely coherent. if he was sober i am sure that he would have never even considered it. he made a drunk mistake. not the end of the world

    also why are people surprised he defended himself? he is probably a quite intelligent individual. i know he went to college and has a decent job. i would defend myself to if it could save a few dollars. people need to move on and get over it and just deal with it.

    also nudist colonies exist where no one would ever care about this

    • LOL!

      Nudist colony argument FTW

      • LOL!

        I would put the nudist colony argument up there with the Johnny Cochran “gloves don’t fit” argument. Glenn, have you considered being a lawyer yourself?

        • Glenn

          actually i have studied law in my free time for nearly 3 years. i also followed the OJ Simpson case thoroughly.

          • drax

            Were you drunk when you studied law?

          • Glenn

            no i was not drunk nor do i drink regularly at all

        • Yeah But…..

          everyone still remembers, “If the glove don’t fit” argument and OJ was acquitted so it proved to be very effective….

      • LOL!

        I also think this argument is a perfect example of why you should NOT defend yourself.

      • http://purple.com/purple.html Major Pup McPuppo

        yeah that really won me over too

    • Trev Trolled

      *Had a job

      Never seen a benefits package that gives you 40 days off for jail time.

      • Glenn

        he might lose his job that is true but what do you expect? this does not mean he will not find a new job in the near future.

        this whole fiasco really is not a big deal to me. people make mistakes and i think employers will be impressed that he defended himself in a court of law. that takes courage to do so and it shows he has street smarts and savvy and ambition. i would not be surprised if he bounces back from this and does quite well for himself in the legal arena.

        • John Fontain

          You’re the best!

        • Glebe Roader

          I believe employers will think defending himself is quite stupid.

        • ArLater

          This has to be a joke. Good stuff brah

          • John Fontain

            It will be funny to see who is the last person to figure this out. I’d say Glenn might be a master. It’s not easy to write in such a way as to not make it completely obvious. There is a subtlety necessary that most don’t have.

          • http://purple.com/purple.html Major Pup McPuppo

            a master troller… if he is one…. which is, in essence, the ultimate troll…

        • em

          I agree with Glenn. In fact, I think Trev should definitely consider applying with the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office once he’s served his time. No doubt they were so impressed with his vigorous defense that they’ll offer him a job on the spot, and he’ll go on to be like Sam Waterson, except even better, and they’ll give him a cool nickname like Trevor “TrevTrev” Frye and the entire court will rise and applause every time he enters the court of law.

        • @Glenn

          Glenn, is he your blood brother or something? What are you talking about?! He was drunk, so it’s ok? Seriously? What he did was illegal. What else is there?
          If she was your sister or mother, I bet you would think differently.

          And what smart, educated man is foolish enough to represent themselves?

          This dude deserves what he got, and what’s to come.

          • Glenn

            i have never met trevor.

            i do not believe in the “sheep mentality” where everyone agrees and piles on. i think there are two sides to every story and i believe that trevor has shown his merits in a very bad situation. he represented himself which required some bravery on his part to be able to stand strong and defend himself when the whole world is rooting against him

        • Not Me

          I’d say you’re right. I believe career congressman is still open to him.

      • John Fontain

        If he’s smart, he’ll voluntarily check himself into jail for a few weekends between now and final sentencing on December 7th. Chances are that will fulfill most of the days he’ll actually be required to serve.

        • Scott

          That would be the smart thing to do & the Court would view positively as accepting responsibility.

    • Concern Troll

      Glenn just doin’ what we do.

      Hit me up when you get out, brah! I’m stocking up on garlic!!!

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      Oh I bet they would care. Harassing people is harassing people.

      • Glenn

        you may call it “harassment” but not everyone sees it the same way. if anyone does there research they will see that there is TWO sides to every story. i do not know trevor personally but i think he is being unfairly treated in the cout of Law

        • jackson

          He’s being treated more harshly here than he was in court. Defending someone who was accused of something is one thing. Defending someone after they were found guilty is another.

          Maybe he can appeal on the basis of having incompetent representation in court.

          • drax

            “Defending someone who was accused of something is one thing. Defending someone after they were found guilty is another.”

            Glad you get the difference. That’s my point above.

          • Glenn

            you know that people can be wrongly accused right?

            what i have learned about the human psyche is that when you are wrongfully accused the first thing you will do is vigorously defend yourself. it speaks volumes about trevor’s innocence that he desired so strongly to defend himself in a Court of Law.

          • drax

            He’s innocent because he said he was? (Did he?)

            Come on, Glenn.

          • Glenn

            you do not understand what i am saying. when people feel like they are guilty they usually tend to be very secretive and quiet and do not want to face a lot of questions and avoid talking about the subject at all costs. someone who is innocent will fight until the death to prove his case and fight for his rights. it is obvious that trevor felt wrongfully accused so he stepped up and made his case bright and clear.

          • drax

            So in other words, yeah, that’s what you think.

          • Brah!

            Their vs there vs they’re!!!

            C’mon brah, you’re better than that.

          • Mary-Austin

            I think it speaks strongly about his arrogance when he decided to defend himself in court against and open and shut case.

            Going on the evidence presented he’s lucky he wasn’t convicted of unlawful entry.

          • Glenn

            are you a lawyer? have you been studying law? i do not think you are qualified to know exactly what happened so i suggest you leave this subject alone

          • emanon

            Was anyone on this thread even AT the court? Just because Trev acted as his own attorney does not mean he even tried to deny the charges. He could have simply admitted guilt and apologized for his actions, knowing full well in advance what the prosecution’s deal would be. I know in the spirit of ArlNow commentators, we should all speculate and jump to conclusions, though, so carry on.

    • Resident

      Last I checked the I was drunk excuse did not change the outcome for the victim of the crime which was addressed by Stamos in her statement.

      Being drunk and doing stupid stuff is the same as being sober and doing stupid stuff when you hurt someone.

      If Trevor is going to make “mistakes” when he is drunk for which others suffer then he needs to not drink or accept the consequences of the choice he made.

      And, if this were in a nudist colony where the girl was choosing to participate then your argument as a thread of sense… otherwise… just idiotic.

      • Glenn

        like i said people can make mistakes on occasion even the most respectable people in this country do. if employers are going to pass on a guy who had the drive and ambition to defend him self in a Court of Law then i do not know what more they ask for from their perspective employees. if i were a hiring manager i would be very interested in giving trevor an interview and hearing about his experience defending himself in a Court of Law

        • ArLater

          Pretty sure most employers would not be too impressed he had to defend himself period. I dont know what ambition that shows?

        • Yeah But…..

          I think that your qualifications as a hypothetical personnel professional are about the equal of your hypothetical legal qualifications ….

          • Glenn

            i do not have a law degree and i am not an “HR Professional” but i think i am much more knowledgable then the average on these subjects. I have always had a close eye on the legal realm and i have done a large number of interviews and even administered an interview as well

          • ArLater

            Hahah FTW. Beginning to think this is trev punkin us all!

          • MO

            You gotta be joking. Wow, you administered an interview. Whoopie!

    • HighViewPunk

      Being drunk is pretty much never a winning argument for committing a crime.

      • Glenn

        do you have a single boss who does not have a drink on the weekends? every person i have ever worked for enjoys drinking from time to time. this is NORMAL. people make mistakes

        you should try watching this show “Mad Men” where they drink rampantly. there are consequences to every action but you see that they are not monsters they are just “Mad Men”

        • drax

          Wow, Glenn. Stay away from my neighborhood.

        • HighViewPunk

          Sure, I enjoy drinking as much as the next person, but I couldn’t possibly believe that excessive drinking will absolve me of my actions.

          • Glenn

            who is to say excessive drinking took place in this instance? do you think being “drunk” or “tipsy” is excessive drinking? the last i checked it is actually legal as long as you do not drive.

          • HighViewPunk

            “He was probably extremely drunk at the time that he did that and was barely coherent.”

          • Bacon

            Ya think?

          • Glenn

            yes and the last i checked that is still 100% legal and guarded by our constitution.

            you have the right to drink as well you just elect not to. this does not mean trevor is a criminal

          • drax

            Drinking is a constitutional right now, Glenn?

          • drax

            If you drink enough to blame a crime on your drinking, that’s excessive drinking, Glenn.

          • Glenn

            do you not see the difference in maliciously snapping nude pictures of your gf and drunkenly stumbling around and accidentally making a mistake?

          • Scott

            Drunk driving okay by you Glenn as long as you don’t really mean it?

          • Arlington Cat

            Glenn, you do not have the constitutional right, outside of your home, to drink to a point that causes “disorderly” behavior. There is actually a law or two against doing just that.

          • drax

            You’re the one who blamed the “mistake” on drinking, Glenn.

          • Scott

            Le sigh. Drinking is not a constitutional right. Courts can and do include restrictions on alcohol as part of sentences.

          • Glenn

            no i have made it explicitly clear that drunk driving is illegal and is not guarded by the constitution. drinking on the other hand is preserved by our human rights in a Court of Law.

          • baconm

            +100

          • drax

            Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Glenn thinks drinking is a right.

          • Mary-Austin

            *as long as you do not drive or blackmail.

        • Scott

          I’ll bite troll. What employer that runs a background check and sees a 40 day jail conviction for an applicant –is then going to dig in further to see if the guy got a raw deal -versus- moving on to the next applicant without a record of jail time?

          • Glenn

            maybe they will see that his other qualifications are strong? if he excels at one area they might not turn away quickly. they might do the “due diligence” necessary to properly evaluate the candidate. this is actually common practice with most hiring departments.

          • Scott

            That’s prob what would happen…

          • Glenn

            yes it would happen and i believe that if they see the full picture of everything that happened they will be impressed that trevor took the initiative and defended himself very well in a court of law

          • Scott

            Yup- I was wrong. Most employers will be impressed with his ability to get drunk and commit crimes & then be convicted of the crime and do jail time. It really is quite impressive when you take the time to do the due diligence.

          • Glenn

            this is not what i am saying. of course they will not be thrilled that he had this legal mishap but if they get the FULL picture they will see that he showed some strong qualities that many employers want in their employees

          • Scott

            what is the full picture that anyone should be impressed by?

          • ArLater

            Cmon Glenn getting sloppy. Its Court of Law, brah.

          • Glenn

            the full picture was that this was a drunken mistake and he fought through tough times and defended himself what the whole world was rooting against him

          • Scott

            Disney should sign up the movie rights – sounds like a truly heart-warming story

          • Glenn

            SCOTT do you have something personal against trevor? i am beginning to feel that you are completely biased and not a reliable source.

          • Scott

            ?? We’re random commenters on an Internet board. I’ve neither claimed to be unbiased or a source of any information.

          • Glenn

            scott i do not care to discuss this with you any longer as you are not being logical or fair or balanced. i would rather discuss this topic with someone who is seeing and thinking clearly and is not blinded by the media hype and the “sheep mentality”

          • darsasx

            Did you stay at a Holiday Inn Express recently?

          • Glenn

            no and you should stop while you are ahead

            Ha!

        • http://purple.com/purple.html Major Pup McPuppo

          obvious troll, u blew ur cover dude

          • Glenn

            you may say i’m a “troll” but please point to me where my argument has been less then legitimate. i have extensively detailed how trevor has shown his resiliance and ability to lead in a court room yet no one can say why this is not the case. nobody here knows trevor yet they all think he is this or that but in reality nobody knows. i am impressed with him because he stood tall and faced adversity and as an employer and someone who has conducted interviews it is obvious to me that it is a very desired quality to have as a young up and coming professional.

            will some turn him down because of his past mistakes? maybe but this is america where we all have a second chance and we all have a right to happiness.

      Well, if I didn’t have a partner, I’d want to see the ‘other’ pics on his phone before answering this question.

      Clarendon Skank or Drunk Irish Chick would have to see if Trev measured up to the Serbian lifeguard before writing. Just saying … they have standards.

  • BallstonBoy

    This article is bogus!

    Someone obviously didn’t do their research because yeah, dude is not a lawyer, but he just took the LSATs and got a perfect score!

    Furthermore, I was present in court and it was 110% clear that he did a perfect job arguing his case. He is such a good public speaker that at one point the whole courtroom started a slow clap for him, including his ex-girlfriend.

    Also, I am the judges weed man and was talking to him the other night and he was saying that the sentence would be like 3-4 times as long if it were anyone else representing Trevor.

    • HighViewPunk

      Nice!

  • Arlington Cat

    BB, we asked you to report on the trial for Arlnow. We now find out you were there and you didn’t provide us updates? I am sooo disappointed with you.

    That being said, there is an old saying “any attorney who defends himself has a fool for a client.” In this case, “any wannabe attorney who defends himself has a fool for a client.”

    • BallstonBoy

      I actually wasn’t planning on being in the good ol US of A until December. I was on a safari in Africa and had to cut the trip super short because of some bs. Long story short someone overheard me talking about killing the rest of my white rhino weed and thought I was actually planning on killing one of the endangered white rhinos.

      Anyways, I get back to the states at midnight and you know your boy is craving a slice of goodies pizza. I get there and you would not effing believe who the only person in line before me is. Thats right, T to the Rev and holy s was he drunk. I guess he had just taking the LSATs and was celebrating.

      I felt bad about blowing up his spot on the last thread and thought I would make it up to him by buying him a pie. He was beyond thrilled. He opened up the box, grabbed the garlic, kicked over a chair, and then yelled “this is A-towwnnn” while caking the whole pizza in that garlic goodness.

      A group of girls walk in as we are heading out and were literally throwing themselves at him. I really don’t get it and I really didn’t understand him giving them the evil eye and walking out silently. It was like he had taking 10 extra shots at the bar and it was just catching up to him because he started calling me dad.

      I didnt know what was going on but played along. He started talking about his case and jokingly I said that he should represent himself because he had just crushed the LSATs.

      He stopped, looked me right in the eyes and said, “I am going to make you proud dad, I am going to make you proud.”

      I think it is safe to say that he made us all proud…

      • John Fontain

        Thank you sir for your intrepid behind the scenes reporting. Was he wearing his “Virginia is for lovers” shirt in court or did he go full Matlock on them and wear a suit? Also, is the reason he leans to his right because that leg is shorter than the left or is it just because he left leg is longer than the right?

        • BallstonBoy

          He was definitely wearing a suit, but he was wearing a “been there, drank that” shirt as an undershirt. Think it was a subtle way for him to stick it to the man.

          I am not an expert, but I am nearly positive his legs are of equal length.

          What we really need to talk about is whats really going on here. Whether you believe it or not, I promise you Trevor is really really smart. It might be easier to think of him as a retard savant.

          When we were in goodies I paid for his pizza and even tipped the guy because I frequent there and they take care of me. I gave them around 20% and Trevor got offended and told me to tip them 33%. I was like bro I dont got time to do that kind of math.

          Before I could say another word he told me that I had to tip an additional $1.89. I thought he was just being drunk but pulled out my phone and checked with my calculator that he was exactly right.

          • Arlington Cat

            And to think, just earlier this year, Trev said to you ” I am not your bro, bra.”

            Is it safe to say you two are now brahs?

          • BallstonBoy

            I wouldn’t classify us as brahs yet but it’s funny you mention that because I actually brought that up to him.

            He said something along the lines of, “It’s simple… don’t bro me unless you know me.”

  • Glenn

    For those that think trevor has commit an egregious and unforgivable crime i have one question.

    why was he only sentenced to 40 days? if he is so terrible and such a criminal, why was he not locked up for life? or even the death penalty?

    • Tackleberry

      You have three questions.

      • Glenn

        i do not care

        • Tackleberry

          To answer your second two questions, Trevor was found guilty of “unlawful filming” under VA Code § 18.2-386.1. Violation of that code is a class 1 misdemeanor (so long as the offense was not against a minor). The punishment for a Class 1 misdemeanor in Virginia is a sentence of up to 12 months in jail and/or a fine of no more than $2,500. To answer your first question, the judge in a criminal case weighs mitigating factors and aggravating circumstances to determine the sentence within the limits of the penalty. This is just speculation, but he probably was only sentenced to 40 days because he had little to no prior criminal history and was under personal stress at the time of the crime, which are two mitigating factors that are considered during the sentencing stage.

          • Glenn

            i am not sure what you are trying to prove by including specific code numbers. nobody cares that you know how to count quite frankly. i am here to discuss this topic on a very complex legal level. if you can not keep up then do not bother wasting my time.

          • Glebe Roader

            Yeah, like you previous response to Tackleberry: “i do not care.” That was discussion on a very complex legal level.

          • Glenn

            Glebe Reader do you think i really think that’s high level discussion? he was trying to make it out to be that i was saying something that was false when in reality i was just saying what came to my mind and not sticking by a strict code or rule of guidance.

          • Tackleberry

            You got upset at Scott for not being a reliable source earlier. I included the code numbers so you would have a source, that’s all. The VA code answers your questions. Why that bothers you, I don’t know.

          • Glenn

            i do not know why you mention mitigating factors when you say that he was under personal stress at the time which is something that cannot be proven. he got off light because he did a great job in the Cour of Law and for no other reason. if he did not represent himself he would have gotten the maximum sentence plain and simple but because he stood up and fought be brought his sentence down to the minimum.

          • Quoth the Raven

            So Glenn, during your complex legal studies, you’ve learned that if you take responsibility for something you get more time, but if you fight you get less? Tell us more, please!!!

      • Scott

        lol @ Tackleberry

    • Mary-Austin

      Dude you’re clearly not qualified to be commenting on legal matters.

      Just because a crime is egregious, which his was, does not mean it warrants death.

      We have a legal system here where saying “oops I was drunk” is not a valid defense.

      • Glenn

        i would argue that you are not qualified to comment on matters involving the Court of Law because you do not hold a Law degree and you do not study law on a regular basis like i do. if you wish to continue this conversation then you should read up on some recent law materials because at this point your opinion is not important to me because it is not credible or worth my time. have a nice day.

        • Mary-Austin

          You are not any more qualified or credible than I am and you have clearly demonstrated that with your “arguments”.

          • Mary-Austin

            “Drinking…is preserved by our human rights in a court of law”…

          • Glenn

            i strongly disagree. since you began posting on this topic you have shown nothing but complete ignorance to the most basic legal principles. i think you need to re evaluate how you use your brain and start reading more books on the subject of the Court of Law.

            With all due respect i disagree with you.

  • Trevor’s Lifting Partner

    After being forced to work out with Trevor every other day (see previous article post where he snapped a picture of me doing a warm-up bench and threatened to show people saying that I was maxing out), this bro has been on his game for the past few months.

    Between our donkey-calf raises sets he was explaining to me about how he was going to defend himself at court, which I kept telling him was a bad idea…. almost as bad as smothering his Goody’s pizza with garlic powder after hitting the bars.

    He then let me in on a bombshell…. since this incident he doesn’t go to Goody’s anymore but goes to the new pizza place across the street. I was shocked, I literally dropped the 45 pound plate as I was trying to re-rack it. You should’ve seen the looks I got, people looking at me like it was too heavy for me or something. So embarrassing!

    Anyways, he says that Goody’s, although is plentiful in garlic, simply does not have enough meat on it’s pizza to meet his daily protein intake… which I totally agreed on because I promise you all that his triceps look way more defined than when he was hitting up Goodys. I suggested to him that if he really wanted the garlic powder then he should just carry some with him to the new place, to which he responded smugly, “ha please, they got it for me brah”.

    As for his lawyering skills, if it is anything like his military press form at the gym, then it had to have been pretty ugly. Needless to say we will be doubling our workout routines in prep for jail. I just hope after he goes in I can get a hold of his cell phone and delete that photo he has of me so I can just end these bro-sessions at the gym. It has honestly been draining

    FWIW — Nowhere in the article does it state that the attempts at intimidation were done while under the influence. Not that it matters. A crime is a crime.

    I would posit that this is a “gateway crime” leading to larger offenses — such as the other charge that failed to stick.
