Pedophile's Claim About Assaulting Child Leaves Courtroom Sick To Their Stomachs

A convicted child molester tried to appeal the decision by attempting to prove to the judge he couldn’t have sexually abused anyone. The man argued that he's too fat and unhealthy to rape children. The man failed to convince a judge of his hardship, and the court didn’t let the man off the hook.

The tragic circumstances of the case came to light when the anonymous victim, who was approximately 10 years old at the time, finally came forward and confided in a teacher that someone had been sexually assaulting her for years. That someone turned out to be Warren Young, a 37-year-old Everett, Pennsylvania man. Due to the victim’s identity being protected, Young’s relationship with the victim has not been released.

Young was tried and ultimately convicted of raping of a child and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child. He was deemed a sexually violent predator and is facing a sentence of 48 to 96 years in prison.

The convict filed an appeal with the court after losing his trial, arguing he couldn’t have committed rape. He asked that the verdict be overturned because his health problems, including his weight, prevent him from getting an erection.

The 320-pound man says between his morbid obesity and medication he takes, he’s impotent. He argues that he wouldn’t have been able to rape anyone.

Judge Victor P. Stabile dismissed Young's claim, saying that the victim's testimony disputes it. “The jury obviously credited the victim’s testimony, and her testimony provides sufficient evidence in support of the convictions,” wrote Stabile in his decision.

The appeal was denied.

Surprisingly, Young is not the first sexual offender to think up this kind of excuse. In Canada, a man on trial for raping and choking two sex workers used the excuse.

The man had his lawyer argue that he couldn't have done it. Apparently, he's way too obese and his penis is way too small. The attorney even went as far as to show nude photos of the defendant and provided them with measurements. The 320-pound man had a 66-inch waist, but a one-inch penis - two inches when erect.

The attorney also argued that the man had a hernia, which would have made it impossible for him to perform.

The victim said she couldn't recall the penis size but felt crushed under the weight of the attacker.

A lawyer in Manhattan tried to defend himself in a sexual assault trial by claiming he was impotent, and that his victim was too obese for him to rape. The man claims that there was no way the large victim would have fit on the fold-out bed in his office, and because he could never have held her down and forced her.

"It was implied it never could have happened as my 200-plus pound frame was too fat to be pushed down, held down, and pulled around like a rag doll," the victim said in an interview with the New York Post.
