Daniel Gendron ordered and obtained a videotape containing child pornography that violated federal law prohibiting possession and receipt. He was found guilty and appealed his conviction claiming it is unconstitutional as well as that the government unlawfully entrapped him.
We reject both arguments. Denying all logical possibilities would result in unnecessary complexity that might obscure any sense of direction needed in any warrant agreement.
Early Life and Education
Last weekend’s deadly shooting spree at a Buffalo grocery store involved an 18-year-old from Conklin in the Southern Tier. He graduated from Susquehanna Valley High School that same year.
Gendron worked at Conklin Reliable Market this winter for approximately three months without directly engaging customers; according to Harrison Gage, owner of the market. Gage noted that Gendron didn’t interact directly with them while working behind the deli counter instead.
Gage reported Gendron as quiet and never complaining; Gage also heard from other students that he was lonely at school; that could have been a warning sign, yet Gendron managed to slip deeper and deeper into white supremacy, eventually becoming immersed in its depths until becoming “equivalent to an average 4chan degenerate,” as per his Discord diary chat log diary log.
Daniel Gendron has over twenty-five years of experience practicing finance. His expertise lies in leveraged finance transactions and restructurings; currently, he works as a partner at Willkie Farr & Gallagher in London, UK.
Gendron owns and operates Lucky Pierre restaurant in New York City and also teaches cooking at The Culinary Institute of America.
The Flyers selected Gendron in the seventh round of 2022 with goal-scoring potential in mind and were not disappointed when he made an instant impact in the QMJHL, notching 55 goals across 63 games for Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and Gatineau Olympiques while adding 14 goals in 13 playoff matches before they were knocked off by league champion Quebec Remparts.
Achievement and Honors
As a child, Gendron excelled in school, once placing first in a state chemistry competition. Classmates remember him as being quiet and studious with good grades. Over time though, his interests turned towards video gaming and guns; when Williamstown High School partially reopened after COVID-19-related closure, Gendron would show up wearing a hazmat suit to attract attention.
He was also an active member of his community, serving on both the sign commission and finance committee of his town. In his free time he enjoyed sailing, basketball and cornhole. A huge fan of antique cars, he particularly relished spending time with his family – his sons loved their father dearly and will sadly miss him greatly. He will be greatly missed.
Red was widely respected as both an outstanding player and coach, but even more for his kindness, generosity, and mentorship of others. To ensure the University of Maine men’s hockey program could always compete at its peak level he established the Grant Standbrook Maine Hockey Forever Fund in his memory.
Contrary to Jacobson, where the Supreme Court found that the government overreached in their entrapment scheme by engaging in psychologically graduated solicitations to Jacobson for child pornography material, here we see no such overreach by law enforcement – rather we find that Daniel Gendron’s receipt of videotape was adequately specific as its trigger event.
Specificity does not depend upon writing words which foreclose all possible logical possibilities; rather it comes from the combination of language and context that allow communication of clear directions in an easy fashion.
Thomas A Gendron is an American businessman and entrepreneur with an estimated net worth of over $11.1 Million as of 2022. He serves as Chairman and President of Woodward Inc, an aerospace and industrial business management solutions company that also specializes in leveraged finance transactions, restructuring transactions and high yield bond issuances.
As part of his personal life, he was an active participant in Williamstown community life, particularly antique car enthusiasts. Additionally, he served on both the town select board and Finance Committee – something his daughter will forever be thankful for!
Court proceedings revealed a jury found him guilty of violating federal mail fraud laws and was sentenced accordingly. On appeal, however, he claimed the law violates his Fifth Amendment rights and that government officials illegally trapped him into this situation.
