About Gabe Gilbert
Gabe Gilbert Mormon Sex Crime Case Summary
In the summer of 2019, Gabe Gilbert, then 19, was taken into custody on nine felony charges after investigators learned he asked a minor to send him naked photos in 2018. When the girl declined and told authorities, investigators discovered 50 potential victims of the same kind of extortion.
In 2019, when authorities went to take Gilbert into custody, they found he was serving a mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the LDS church or Mormon church).
Gilbert was convicted in 2021 of five counts of first-degree felony aggravated sexual extortion of a child and four counts of second-degree felony sexual exploitation of a minor. While prosecutors recommended he serve five years in prison, Gilbert was sentenced to terms of five years to life in state prison for each of the first-degree felonies.
