Top Chef Finalist Charged With Child Porn


Do you remember Morgan Wilson? He was a finalist on the first season of Top Chefs Just Desserts and now he faces 10 years in jail for possessing child pornography. He is due in court today in Dallas on three separate charges after undercover investigators found images on his computer which showed children as young as toddlers having sex. I am disgusted right now. He was an a-hole on the show and any child porn case is always disturbing and makes me wonder how people get that way. I just hope this has been confined to his computer and that he has not participated in anything in person. He has been the pastry chef at The Ritz Carlton in Dallas.


I noticed in the article that the HR director for the hotel has the last name of Van Winkle. Considering it is Dallas I am wondering if they are related to Robert Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice. Then tabloids could have a headline that said, "Vanilla Ice Linked To Child Porn Scandal."

YUUUUCCCKKK, how the hell do you produce porn with toddlers?!?! What sick individual even thinks of that or would allow their child to be used that way?!?! Throw the book at this scumbag!

I saw this over the weekend and was equally disgusted. I watched the season also and he was a first class douchebag.

I was so happy when he lost there was just something so creepy about him and the way he cried over his child, it seemed so forced.

I really hope his kid is safe.

He was arrested for this while the show was airing last December; it took this long for the press to uncover this.

I am completely disgusted by this. But the Feds don't mess around, especially with child porn. This guy won't see the outside of a prison for a long time

I'm completely disgusted. This infuriates me. Todder age???? WTF!!! What is wrong with people out there??? This is just plain sick. Who are these sickos filming this and how in the hell is there any fanbase for this. How does this turn a person on??? I just don't get it. 10 years and chop of his Pepe with a knife. That will stop him from ever looking at that again...and this guy has a kid???? I'm shocked. I hope he's not allowed to see his child ever again.

Hopefully he'll share a cell with that "Random Task" guy.

annabella said...

disgusting!

I disagree w/your language today Enty. toddlers don't have sex, they get raped.

hopefully he'll get a long prison sentence and they'll be able to trace the porn back and get those people too. gross.

there are no words :'( what a horrible person.

@ seachica--

He damn well better not, anyway...huh?!

Sicko pervert.

They oughta hang him by his 'nads is what I say. In a public square until his corpse rots.

Fair warning to the rest of them.

selenakyle said...

That is, IF he is guilty. Although I have no idea how that would be on his computer unless he wanted it there... Seems like it'd a lot of trouble to go through if someone was trying to frame him or something.

I believe a lot of abusers and neglecters were themselves abused and neglected, that is obvious. But where and HOW do we break the cycle???

timebob said...

@annabella just to clarify, the toddlers were made to have sex with each other from what I read. But it is all rape, yes.

I can't even begin to understand it myself.

joymama said...

Kinks? To each their own ---- but NEVER with children! Animal. Maybe his cellmate could be that Austin Powers actor. Just saying.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I knew this guy on another website and he got arrested for this also. He seemed so intelligent and everybody on that site thought the world of him. So freaking shocking and bitterly disappointing.

SusanB said...

Toddlers were forced into sexual activity with EACH OTHER!!!!!! I just assumed the pervs liked seeing adults with kids (not that I ever gave it a lot of thought). Death is too good for these bastards. Let'em be tortured with adult survivers of child abuse.

califblondy said...

He was a little creepy on the show, but I didn't think he was THIS creepy.

BigMama said...

@selenakyle - he admitted to it. he is guilty.

I am a screaming liberal but this is where it stops for me. (in fact I don't know any liberals who would disagree with me) People who harm or abuse children for ANY reason should get the most extreme sentence allowed. Especially if they admit to it. I don't care if it happened to him as a child or whatever. We live in a much more informed era and it is inconceivable to me that someone would not know it was wrong. Throw the book at him! And several other heavy objects, like anvils and sledge hammers!

Christine said...

Only 10 years? He deserves way more than just 10 years.
Also, he reminds me of Brian Austin Green in that picture.

Susan said...

This is horrifying. Top Chef Desserts that season had some cray cray peeps. This just takes the cake. Literally.

RocketQueen said...

I remember this guy - very talented and as much as the other contestants hated him, I kind of thought they were all just jealous. He wasn't very friendly to others and I thought there was something a *bit* off. Well, here it is, I guess.

__-__=__ said...

I hate these people! How do we break the cycle? We start breeding more selectively. We talk to our kids about breeding selectively. Good luck!

Carrie L. said...

There was something about him I found very creepy, but I never thought to take my mind there. I thought he was very talented & was surprised he didn't win. I think he had a very young son, so I pray nothing happened to that poor boy physically; this arrest in itself will scar him for life.

Sick fuck.

Jamee said...

Did he PRODUCE the porn himself, or did he download it/buy it off the internet? I was under the impression that he "possesses" it but didn't produce it himself. He's a sick fuck either way, but producing it would be a much harsher sentence. Wouldn't he be charged with molestation etc.? Just wondering...

Sis said...

I'm beyond disgusted...I hope he gets more than 10 years, and I thought he was creepy on the show too. Yuck!!

feraltart said...

Lock every pedophile up for life!

Maja. With a J. said...

This is just disgusting. I hope they deep fry his balls.

Seachica said...

@jamee - from reading articles about this, it sounds like he is accused of possession and trafficking (sending) the pictures, not of producing it. I would love to read the indictment directly, but not while I am at work! A former acquaintance of mine got 5 years for pleading guty to possession -- they didn't find evidence that he had sent photos. When you are guilty of sending photos, the penalties get much harsher (I think they double). Btw, the advice my friend got going into prison was to lie about what he was in for, because the lowest of the low in prison are child porn guys. Morgan is in for a brutal 10 years, followed by shunning for the rest of his life on the outside. I hate that I know all this, but the perverts are sometimes the ones who seem normal.

As for people like this they need to just bury them under the damn jail.

timebob said...

this is from ABC news:

The 38-year-old chef, who lives in Plano, is due in court Oct. 27.

Wilson was first arrested on Dec. 7, 2010 after undercover investigators say they received several file transfers from Wilson via a peer-to-peer file-sharing service. Those files, received in Sept. 2010, allegedly contained images and videos of children, some as young as toddlers, engaged in sexual acts. Police subsequently searched Wilson’s home, where they say he signed and dated pornographic images he admitted he’d viewed. Wilson’s laptop computer and external hard drives also were confiscated. He was released on $10,000 bail following his December arrest and ordered not to use computers without supervision.

Wilson reportedly works as the executive pastry chef at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Dallas, though his name does not appear on the hotel’s website. He also has a young son, about whom he often spoke during his Top Chef: Just Desserts “confessional” segments.

@Jamee, the federal statutes for child exploitation and obscenity:

You're right, the production has a 15 to 30 sentence.

Lelaina Pierce said...

Let's leave Vanilla Ice out of this.

Yep, 10 years does not sound long enough.
