Man Meets Sister’s Rapist in Jail, ‘Prison Justice’ Is Swiftly Dealt
Placed in jail cell with pedophile who boasted about raping his sister as a child
When a man was put in a jail cell with an inmate who turned out to be a pedophile who raped his sister as a child, a heavy dose of "prison justice" soon followed.
Shane Goldsby, 26, pleaded guilty to the murder of his child rapist cellmate who had reportedly boasted about attacking his younger sister and other victims.
On Tuesday, Goldsby was sentenced to 25 years in prison killing 70-year-old Robert Munger inside Airway Heights Corrections Center in Washington on June 2, 2020.
Goldsby told the court he felt he was put in an unfair and impossible position when he was forced to share a cell with Munger, KHQ reports.
He has said that while they shared a cell, Munger would describe his crimes in graphic detail and talk about pictures he had of the sexual acts.
As the pedophile reportedly gloated about abusing his child victims, Goldsby snapped and attacked Munder in the communal area of the jail.
Court records say Goldsby “[hit] Munger in the face and head area about 14 times, (stomped) on his head at least four times and (kicked) a couple more times before walking away and being taken into custody by Airway Heights Corrections Guards.”
The attack was captured on surveillance footage and Goldsby was immediately moved to a different detention center.
Munger died a slow and agonizing death, succumbing to his injuries three days later.
Munger was convicted in December 2019 of child rape, child molestation, and possession of child pornography.
Goldsby told KHQ last year that he had requested a different cellmate but was ignored.
He told the news station that his unease at sharing a cell with a man who raped his sister grew into an intense rage after the child abuser started talking about his crimes in detail.
"I had so much stuff going on in my head," he said.
"I wasn’t stable at that point. I wasn’t.
"I was getting to that point, because (Munger) kept wanting to give me details about what happened, what he did – about the photos and the videos of him doing this stuff.
"It was building up."
State investigators later found that corrections officials didn’t know of the connection between the two men prior to the incident, according to Spokesman-Review.
Goldsby is currently being held at the Washington State Penitentiary, according to court documents.
His younger sister was still a minor as of last year, according to the Associated Press.
