Bruce Davidson Accidentally Shot His 3-Way Sex Partner to Death. He’ll Serve 15 Years For It

Bruce Davidson (nee Lavallee-Davidson), who was one member of a bizarre three-way sex romp that ended just horribly, was sentenced today to 15 years in jail, of a possible 30, for the death of Fred Wilson, whom Davidson shot in the head during a 12-hour drug-fueled marathon sex session in April 2008, while Wilson and a third man, James Pombriant, were having sex. Both the prosecution and defense agreed Davidson did not believe the gun was loaded, nor did he intend to kill him, but that the responsibility to ensuring the safety of the gun was his

Four days after Wilson’s body was discovered, Davidson (pictured right, with attorney Thomas Hallet) was among the gay activists testifying before Maine’s lawmakers about the importance of legalizing gay marriage.

    Is this the one where supposedly the victim loaded the gun when he wasn’t looking, or have I hopelessly garbled things?

  • Graham

    @Hyhybt: Correct, same guy.

  • aalan brickman

    say gay rights and you can get off for anything….

  • Jose

    @aalan brickman:

    you misinterpret. They’re not arguing gay rights or discrimination to get him off the hook.
    The killer was arguing for gay rights PRIOR to the awful incident. That was included in the article because it reflects very badly on the gay rights movement when its speakers do shitty stuff like that.

  • Jose

    oh fuck went back up and reread it and I got it wrong, he was arguing in favor of gay rights AFTERWARD which makes me all kinds of confused as to why the fuck he would think that was a good idea

    eh, my bad, but the point is he’s not doing it to help his homicide case. But rather the fact that he’s doing it is making the gay rights movement look bad.

  • Graham

    He was arguing for gay rights *after* he killed the guy but *before* he turned himself in to the police. Which just shows how fucked up he is: the fact that he just killed a man didn’t stop him from driving to the state capital to attend (and speak at) the public hearing about same-sex marriage.

  • Graham

    Also, he’s only going to spend 10 years in prison: the sentence was 15 years, with five years suspended. I wonder if he could get out sooner for “good behavior” or something like that. Regardless, it’s a pathetic sentence.

  • DR

    Sex, drugs and guns is a bad mix. He ought to be thankful he’s only doing 5 (provided he plays by the prison rules, anyway).

  • Tallskin

    Just goes to show guns kill people not guns!

    If there’d been no gun around then no gun would’ve gone off and killed this man.

    Seems simple to me as a stupid, simple dumb european!

  • Tessie Tura

    That troll has a three-way, and I can’t get laid? There is NO justice.

  • TheAwfulTruth

    Hope he rots in hell, dirty old bag.

  • anonymous #4

    Thank you Queerty for sparing the pics of the other two involved. This old troll is frightening enough.

  • The Artist

    Guns! Ugh! PEACELUVNBWILD! Without Guns!

  • Bruce

    What the heck. If it really was an accident I don’t see why he should spend so long in prison. If you do P&P and unknowingly give someone HIV should you get a prison sentence for that as well? This is stupid, but I don’t see how or why he should spend years in prison. Its not like he is a threat to society or something.
