During Pellebon’s interview with police, he was unresponsive to a question police asked about his ex-wife finding something on a computer that she wasn’t comfortable with.
Esplin said typically in pedophilia, a person will lose interest in the individual once the child becomes pubescent. It’s unusual to maintain the relationship because the person could come forward later in life about incidents that occurred, he said.
Pellebon kept in contact with several females he had known since they were children, remaining affectionate with them through their adult lives. Several of those women testified Tuesday.
One also testified Wednesday who, like other witnesses, met Pellebon when she was a child. They met on a military base in Las Vegas where Pellebon served in the United States Air Force and volunteered a lot of time to youth activities.
The woman testified that she had been sexually abused twice as a child before she met Pellebon, around the age of 12, and she never felt weird or creeped out by Pellebon’s affectionate manner and described it as “very genuine.”
Another woman who testified Wednesday met Pellebon at church, where he was a parishioner and she was the pastor’s wife in Wisconsin.
She said Pellebon also gave her kisses on the cheek and hugged her and was involved in her children’s lives.
