Hydrogenerate Founder Guilty of Lewd act on Child
Hydrogenerate founder William Woslum, aka James Pelto, James Strader, and etc has plead guilty to two charges of lewd act on a child in San Diego. He had faced 50 counts. Woslum had a prior conviction for molesting a girl in Ventura County in 1981. He faces a hearing on October 17 to determine if he has a bank robbery conviction from 1964.
San Diego media covered the story:
Kudos to the Thai police who caught him and the FBI who kept the search on all this time. San Diego Deputy District Attorney Wendy Patrick did a great job getting him behind bars without a trial. I hope the 9 year old who, 12 years ago stood up to Woslum's threats serves as an inspiration to the investors who, mostly, have taken Pelto's lewd act on them lying down.
