A Washington man accused of videotaping his sexual assaults of young boys is being allowed to continue watching the footage -- from the prison where is awaiting trial.

Marc Gilbert is acting as his own attorney in the case, which entitles him to review the evidence. In this instance the evidence is more than 100 DVD's containing more than a day of child pornography. Gilbert, a former jet pilot, is accused of luring more than a dozen boys to his home with promises of alchohol and flight lessons. Some of the videos he is viewing -- in a private room, so other inmates cannot see -- were allegedly produced during those encounters.

The State Supreme Court has already ruled for Gilbert, forcing law enforcement to comply with something deeply repugnant to them.

Make no mistake -- I don't like it, said Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor. But it is not my choice whether to do it or not to do it. There's no question that I don't like it. There's no question that this makes me grind my teeth.
