UPDATE
Fugitive back in Pierce County to face child rape charges
Yesterday [19 June 2018]

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A Pierce County man who fled the country while awaiting trial on child rape charges has been extradited to Washington state.

The News Tribune reports that U.S. Marshals arrested 62-year-old Gilbert Greenwood in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on May 30. He was turned over to a federal task force and extradited to the U.S.

Records show he was booked into the Pierce County Jail Monday. He’s scheduled to appear in Pierce County Superior Court Tuesday on child rape and child molestation charges.

Prosecutors accused Greenwood in 2013 of sexually abusing a girl over a decade, starting in 2002 when she was 4.

He was arraigned in May 2013 and was released after posting $100,000 bail. He didn’t appear for his 2014 trial and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Gil Greenwood operated a two way radio shop on the Kitsap peninsula near Seattle WA. He liked to hook up with younger teenaged girls and married one of them..

Several of his employees were killed under weird circumstances or while on the job at remote sites. This guy is a real piece of work. In one case a former (male) secratary turned tower climber of his told me he had had an affair with Gils then earlier wife and thus ended up without employment.. He was found hanging in his new employers field (with unexplained bruising from what Im told).

Gil ended up giving up all his FCC licensing to another radio shop and sold everything he could before he fled. Apparently the other radio shop owner had helped him out with the bail and is now out their money.

Gil could become quite aggressive and intimidating if you tried to disagree with the way he did something. Im glad to see they got him!

He molested a young Pierce County girl and fled to Cambodia. Now he’s been sentenced

A man who molested a young girl in Pierce County and fled to Cambodia following his arrest was sentenced Wednesday.

Gilbert Michael Greenwood, 63, pleaded guilty earlier this year to two counts of both first-degree child molestation and third-degree child assault.

Superior Court Judge Stephanie Arend sentenced him to eight years, four months to life in prison, which means the state’s Indeterminate Sentence Review Board will decide when or if he’s released.

That sentence is what both the defense and prosecution recommended.

Charging papers say Greenwood first abused the girl in 2002, when she was 4, and continued to abuse her for 10 years.

He was released on bail following his arraignment in May 2013, then failed to appear for trial in October 2014.

U.S. Marshals found him in the city of Siem Reap, and he was extradited to Tacoma about a year ago.

Greenwood said he’d been living in Cambodia with his wife and raising two sons.

It was his choice to be at the sentencing, he told the judge. He described corruption among police in Cambodia, and how he was tipped off prior to his arrest. He had an offer to escape to Laos with a new identity but turned it down because he wanted to face the charges against him, he told the judge.
