    Mother goes to jail for beating sex offender

    Mother Who Beat Sex Offender: 'I'd Do It Again'

    Was Tammy Gibson protecting her young daughter or just beating up a neighbor, unprovoked?

    Either way, she will now spend three months behind bars for taking a baseball bat to a sex offender last summer who was talking with her daughter.

    Gibson said she has no remorse for the June 19 assault but pleaded no contest Friday to assault charges. She could have received as much as eight months in jail, but the judge sentenced her to three.

    "No, I'd do it again if not better," she told ABC News Seattle affiliate KOMO-TV. "I don't care if it hurts me, I don't regret it. It got him away from my kids and all the other kids in the neighborhood."

    According to police documents, Level-3 sex offender William A. Baldwin had moved into his uncle's home in Tacoma in early June. Following his move, county deputies distributed flyers around the neighborhood to alert residents of his presence.
    On June 19, Gibson went to the house in the trailer park and asked for Baldwin.

    When Baldwin stepped outside, she claimed she was going to kill him because Baldwin had molested her children. Gibson then proceeded to hit Baldwin repeatedly with her bat, the document said, leaving him with an injured arm.

    "I kept swingin' and swingin', and swingin'," Gibson told investigators.

    Contrary to what she had said to Baldwin, Gibson later told investigators Baldwin had not molested her children. But she did say that she recognized Baldwin from the flyer as the man who had chatted up her then-10-year-old daughter during the previous summer. Baldwin is the memorable height of 7 feet, 3 inches tall.

    "For him to be right there, in front of my house and talking to my child -- made me crazy," she told KOMO.

    "And I told him I thought he was a piece of crap and I smacked him," she added. "I just didn't stop hitting him. I just told him that 'if it were up to me, I'd kill ya."'

    "I was scared. I was frightened. I didn't know what the hell to do," Baldwin previously told KOMO of being assaulted by the unexpected visitor.

    The daughter she was protecting was in tears during the sentencing on Friday.
    "He tried to give me fireworks and I wouldn't take it," the girl, Renee Maria Perez, said of Baldwin.

    Gibson's other daughter, Rachael Porter, added, "I think it's crap; that she was protecting her kids like she should have been. They locked her up for way too long."

    Hmmm, in CA we had one mother that killed her sons alleged molester. In the courtroom no less. Vigilante Justice? Is it really worth the consequences?

    They even made a movie about the case. Ellie Nessler has since died from complications of breast cancer.

    10, maybe 15 years ago, a convicted child molester was being transferred to prison in FL. The father of the victim, a little boy who was repeatedly raped, walked up to the guy and shot him in the head in the airport. There is video of it on the web.

    He was convicted of having a weapon in the airport. A misdemeanor.

    I could see it, immediately after the fact, but the previous summer? She should have reported the incident. By the way, how is a 7'3" guy going to let a woman beat him like that?

    If it's the same one I am thinking about (can't be all that many child molesters killed in the Baton Rouge Airport) I knew him. If I remember right, his name was Jeff Doucette or something similar. He was a Tae Kwon Do instructor at a school that had connections with the one where I trained.

    The father acted like he was talking on a pay phone and when the officers escorted the suspect by, he walked up and shot the suspect in the back of the head.

    About 20 years ago Baton Rouge PD detectives were walking a suspect as you described through Ryan Airport after coming in on a flight having picked up the suspect on an extradiction order, I think it may have been from Florida. A news crew was filming the arrival. The father was pretending to be using a pay phone with his back to the officers and the suspect. As they passed his position the father turned around and shot the suspect once in the head with a .357 magnum killing him DRT. I was in the Navy at the time and remember watching it on the national news in San Diego.

    Yea , that's the one, Cipd24. I think the father got 5 years probation.

    Should be edited to read....
    Following his move, county deputies, followed Baldwin while he distributed his own flyers around the neighborhood to alert residents of his presence. Baldwin was also ordered to pay deputies for their time.

    I agree with her taking it to a jury. I'll bet at least one of the twelve would think she was doing a community service.
