Pedophilic Weatherman Released from Jail

Categories: News
BillKamal.jpgNever use the Internet when you're laid up with food poisoning, and never trust your own legal defense. Those are the lessons supposedly learned from the bizarre criminal saga of former WSVN Channel 7 weatherman Bill Kamal, who was released from jail last week.

In actuality, Kamal, using the screen name "morethandick," chatted online with what he thought was a 14-year-old boy named Billy and arranged to meet him for sexual purposes. Of course Billy was undercover detectives, and they arrested Kamal, ensuring a local media sensation. He pleaded guilty and got off with a five-year prison term. According to Local 10, which loves embarassing WSVN with this story, he was released yesterday to a Philadelphia halfway house.

In a bizzare jailhouse interview with Channel 10 in 2005, Kamal alleged he was innocent. He said he pleaded guilty only because he wanted to avoid life in jail, that a case of food poisoning had left him confused, and that he never wanted to have sex with the boy, but only to be a father to him. It's kind of sad, because listening to his side of the story, you can tell the detectives played with his emotions, saying the kid had just lost his father, and his mom was with some loser new boyfriend. Still, though, cops found condoms and water guns in his car, and we suppose the kids who would actually seek out this kind of relationship online have similarly sad lives.

Kamal's full five years aren't up, but he's spending the last few months in a halfway house. After that, he'll be on probation for life.

This guy fucked up big time..and yes he deserves punishment..however he also deserves a chance just like the other sex offenders...just because this man has money..the media and the system wants to make a example out of him..if they are going to do this..they should do this to everyone who committed this crime...its only fair!

He is still in denial. Once he faces his demons, he'll be able to enjoy life again... and possibly his profession.

Kamal was either part owner or investor in a gay club up on Las Olas called Cathode Ray, and I recall seeing him there many times. He would cruise the young clientele and actually say that he was a local celebrity! He came over to us one night and tried to hustle one of my friends, but backed off when I asked him for Rick Sanchez's autograph.

Allan I guess you feel the same way about that smuck Rick Sanchez who ran over people after a Dolphins game while being drunk and running home and not giving a breath test for twelve hours afterward...Miami and its news teams are shit.....they will hire anyone

He was a well known homosexual walking hand in hand through the Broward mall with one of his so called partners.Seen by not only the public but by another known homosexual ,which I will not name since he is a well known ex DJ on a Miami AM radio station,, Oh by the way the DJ even broadcasted of Kamal's blanting walk of shame with one of his partners

It is a sad thing that happened. A public orTV personality should neverput himself or job on the line. He was a good weather caster. Had simular problems in D.C. as wellHope he has learned from his mistake. Deserves a chance once again.

"It's kind of sad, because listening to his side of the story, you can tell the detectives played with his emotions, saying the kid had just lost his father, and his mom was with some loser new boyfriend."

Sad? What is really sad is this predator, who had images of minors engaging in sex with adults, is portraying himself as a victim. What is sad is this man has the nerve to complain about how humiliating prison life is, never once concerning himself about the humiliation of children being sexually assaulted by an adult.

Your whitewashing his actions is truly despicable.
