Feature | The Face of Child Porn: Gina Zhdilkov thought her family was safe from the child porn that ruined her childhood. Then the FBI investigated her husband. Page 3

Posted // April 22,2008 -

Before Zhdilkov, then-40 year old Greer, according to his attorney, Jerome Mooney, had never had an adult relationship. “In reality, he should never have got involved with her in the first place,” Mooney says.

That’s a sentiment Zhdilkov undoubtedly now shares. But not back in 1994. Then, for the first time in her life, she felt safe. That sense of security, combined with the death of her mother from a stroke, brought an avalanche of memories of her father’s abuse. Greer went with Zhdilkov to therapy with a local psychologist, Thomas G. Harrison. For the first year, she couldn’t bring herself to look at Harrison. In the voice of a child, she would whisper to Greer to tell Harrison the depravities her father had inflicted upon her.

At first she was terrified she would lose Greer. But each time she said something about her past, Greer would hold her and tell her how sorry he was for what had happened. “I loved him so much, you can’t imagine,” she says.

GHOST MOM

Zhdilkov graduated with her masters degree on June 10, 1994. She married Greer the next day. Her twins sang a wedding song a cappella, and her youngest child was the ring bearer. “It was the most beautiful day of my life,” she says in tears. They bought a fixer-upper on Princeton Avenue, in the 9th and 9th district of Salt Lake City.

For the first time in Zhdilkov’s life, love and sex came together. As she grew psychologically and emotionally healthier, she left behind the damaged child who had turned to Greer for comfort so often. It was then, she says, her husband pulled away. “The problem was he wasn’t comfortable with me anymore,” she says. “I didn’t get it.”

After her discovery of her father’s photographs and his subsequent death a few months later, Zhdilkov struggled to keep her life together. “I was determined my father wasn’t going to reach out from the grave and ruin everything I had worked so hard for, my life with my husband and my daughters. I just wanted to raise this happy family so bad.”

Try as she might, though, the horror of what Greer had found in her father’s closet slowly consumed her. She couldn’t sleep without getting drunk first. She had nightmares, constantly shook, and after a year, had to give up work as a therapist for sexually abused children and their families at Valley Mental Health. She found herself spacing out into nothingness, believing she was nothing more than “nuclear fallout.” Her mother had gone through similar spells where she would abruptly sit in a chair and mentally disappear. “She was all I had, and I would try harder and say, ‘Please let me in, please let me in,’ and she was just like a zombie,” Zhdilkov says.

All Zhdilkov thought she could do to help everybody was “to move on, instead of having this ghost mom who’s there but not really there.” A year after finding the pictures, she tried to kill herself with tranquilizers and alcohol. Instead of stopping her pain from leaking “all over my house and my kids,” her suicide attempt made things “infinitely worse,” she says in a tiny voice.

After a week in a psychiatric institute and treatment for substance abuse, Zhdilkov began the long path to recovery. Her children are now adults, living their separate lives.

THE ENEMY BESIDE YOU

Greer and Zhdilkov separated in September 2003, when, she says, she learned he’d been lying about finances, including taking out numerous substantial loans and failing to file his taxes for five years. A year and a half later, they got back together. On June 29, 2006, Zhdilkov left work to find her husband home uncharacteristically early. “You won’t believe the day I’ve had,” he told her.

The FBI had interrogated him about a Seattle-based business associate being investigated for securities fraud and had carted off computers from his office. The bombshell was yet to come. “You better sit down now because there’s something I need to tell you that may or may not end our marriage,” she recalls him calmly informing her.

hspace=3During the FBI interview, he had denied having any child porn on his home or work computers. Later that day, he changed his mind. He voluntarily handed over to the FBI four discs of child pornography he had at the office. He told his stunned wife he had downloaded it from the Internet while they were separated because he was depressed.

Zhdilkov drove to one of her daughters’ homes. Her son-in-law told her, “You can’t stay married to him, can you?”

She returned home to find a note on the table from Greer. The FBI had more questions for him. “I should be back in a couple of hours. I sincerely regret the pictures. Love, Roger.”

Her closest friend, special-education teacher in Davis and Salt Lake county schools, Beth Mazur, was driving when her cell phone rang. A voice like a child crying for help called out her name on the phone. Mazur found Zhdilkov in a rocking chair. She said she had thrown Greer out of the house. If Zhdilkov had had a gun that day—as she says she does now—she would have shot him. “This was the enemy in my house, the enemy of everything,” she says. “He had to go at all costs.”

Mazur took Zhdilkov home. All night long Zhdilkov lay in Mazur’s bed with her, sobbing, in the fetal position. “It was like the whole world had broke,” Mazur says.

Zhdilkov believes her ex-husband, whom she divorced after a messy yearlong battle in 2007, from the beginning of their marriage was collecting images of child sexual exploitation. As a social worker, Mazur says, Zhdilkov knew all the signs to look for when it came to identifying a child-porn addict. The problem was, given Greer’s five years of volunteer work at the rape crisis center, so did he. “And he hid them,” Mazur says.

One dark question Zhdilkov and Mazur sought to answer was whether Greer had molested any of their four daughters. For two years Greer picked up Mazur’s pre-adolescent daughter from school, claiming he wanted to protect her from child molesters. All four girls, Zhdilkov says, denied anything took place. While Zhdilkov is convinced Greer is a pedophile, federal court documents state, “Though Mr. Greer does not have a diagnosis of pedophilia, the large quantity [of child-porn images] he possessed seems to contradict any contentions that he did not have a strong interest in this subject matter.” For 10 years after his anticipated release in 2010, Greer will be on the sex offenders’ registry.

I understand this very much and i do understand how watching "barely legal" sites can influence someone to watch underage and eventually become a pedophile my father is a pedophile he committed numerous acts against all of his 6 daughters and other children as well i know what it feels like to be betrayed by someone you love like she was its a terrible ordeal and one that is definitely hard to get away from . If you have gone thru sexual abuse its safe to say that you should live alone all your life because you will alway pull someone right in its sickening and disheartening and yes you dont want to live anymore and yes you hate yourself everyday but you have to stay alive to help others who need your voice and experiences. I just hate hate hate men who would ever think of doing these things and I deeply admire this woman for her strength. The lawyers judges and prosecutors always act that way with people the only that that talks to them is money or a lawsuit.

Posted // June 12,2008 at 08:43 Greer’s defense attorney, Jerome Mooney, did not review the tens of thousands of images found on discs and computers in his client’s former home for good reason. After first attempting (unsuccessfully) to defend Greer by trying to get the FBI search warrant which was executed at Greer’s business thrown out, he moved on to other manuevers such as trying to get his client off by claiming that his elderly mother was dependent on his care.nnFailing the above, Mooney set his sites on convincing former federal judge, Paul Cassell, that Greer should receive leniency because he voluntarily turned over the 4 discs at National Stock Transfer. What Mooney (and ultimately, Cassell) downplayed, was that Greer turned-over discs AFTER the FBI had already confiscated his computers.nnGreer declined to grant the FBI access to home computers. He denied that further evidence would be found at home. However, Greer’s ex-wife did not believe that his newly discovered predilection would be limited to the office. Greer regularly stayed-up on home computers late into the night, catching up on work. Ironically, he claimed that he was overburdened with work because Kay Galster, his sister, sole employee, and now, owner/operator of National Stock Transfer, was lazy and incompetent.nnGreer carefully guarded home computers. He kept the fact that he had wired the home with 3 lines of high speed internet, a secret from his wife. Instead he claimed that there was only dial-up internet at home because he couldn’t justify a need for faster and more expensive service. We use the internet so rarely. Internet bills it was later discovered, were sent to Greer’s private PO box. nnGreer’s ex wife did not know how to use the internet at the time of their separation. (Those who know her personally, laugh at Greer’s claim that she must have planted the evidence on home computers.) But with the assistance of a friend, she was able to download just one of the hundreds of unlabled discs Greer shamelessly and confidently left lying about in 3 of his home offices. She discovered approximately 100 files on that sole disc, containing approximately 10-12 images of child pornography per file. After contacting the Utah Attorney General and giving permission to remove all computers and computer-related materials from her home, she learned that there were at least, tens of thousands more images of abused little girls. nnUltimately, the Utah Attorney General was ordered to turn over their evidence to the FBI because their investigation was already in progress. The FBI obtained a separate warrant before viewing the 4 discs Greer provided initially. Their case appeared so solid, it was decided to prosecute on that alone. Unfortunatly, that decision opened the door for the defense to claim that there was no further evidence beyond that which Greer voluntarily surrendered. Mooney argued that Greer had recently concluded that it was wrong to download the images at his office and was plannig to destroy the discs. Apparently, the FBI interrupted his immenent intention to do so.nnJudge Cassell was informed that there was further evidence in the home. Furthermore, the dates on downloaded files confirmed that Greer had collected and saved the images prior to anyone else’s awareness. Cassell also knew that Greer protected some of his material with triple passwords and firewalls. But in the end, Cassell granted Greer a downward departure in sentencing from 51 to 33 months. Furthermore, he limited Greer’s requirement to register as a sex offender to 10 years, when he could have added to public safety by having him register for life. While Cassell could have also fined Greer up to $250,000 for his crimes, he fined him only $2,500, which he is allowed to pay in convenient installments. It seems that the fact that Greer was represented by an attorney with offices in Salt Lake and Beverly Hills, escaped Cassell’s awareness that Greer could probably handle a stiffer fine. nnMooney’s comments in the above article are disgusting. The memory of having seen him in action at court, is even more disgusting. Mooney strolled into court like a jovial celebrity attending a party. He deflected the prosecution’s admonitions to remember the sufferring of the child victims, with easy smiles and self-serving small talk about his upcoming travels. nnIn the final analysis, the injustice system simply slapped another one on the hand. Is it any wonder that child victimization is so prevelant in our society today? 2008-04-23 09:11:01.0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Anonymous 207.200.116.136 7BE4317C-14D1-13A2-9F8550ADC55963C0 74DDE875-14D1-13A2-9F9383B6EC6D59A8 Argh!

We’re not all d*bags. Almost every time someone mentions them in the media, it’s in a bad light. They run red lights, they don’t wear helmets (so what?), they ride on the sidewalk or between cars... Well, guess what? So do a thousand other idiots on mountain bikes, road bikes, bmx bikes, long-boards, and anything else with wheels. I’ve seen way more elderly, homeless, young teenagers, and obvious bicycle newbies doing way more stupid things on the road, endangering themselves and others, than I have fixie riders. I ride fixed. I don’t wear a helmet. Sometimes I go through red lights if it’s late at night, there’s no traffic for blocks, and I don’t weigh enough to trip the sensors. And sometimes you have to get on the sidewalk, either to save your ass or because there’s just no other way. But I always ride aware, and with a cognizance of and courtesy to all those around me. And really that’s how we all should be, no matter how you get around. nYou sparked a dialog, and that makes people aware. And that’s exactly how we need to be. 2008-07-31 19:59:34.0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 jesseaxe 75.169.135.134 7BFF5343-14D1-13A2-9F47E44CD14894FE 710F0FF9-14D1-13A2-9F475C43388FA92C It’s true: Walmart treats their employees poorly. They know that they can get away with it, so they do. But just for the sake of comparison, I thought I might mention that my experiences working for some of SLC’s much beloved locally owned businesses haven’t been great, either.nnBack in the day I was a waitress at Bill and Nada’s cafe/restaurant. I hate to speak poorly of the departed, but Bill was a pain in the ass to work for, and not just because of his management style (which was colorful - which is a nice way to say offensive, although luckily I’m not too sensitive). One example: during an overnight shift on a weekend, the cook sent out one of the orders - a plate of fried chicken - done on the outside and still frozen on the inside. After I served it to the customer, he complained (rightfully so) and returned the dish. So I offered to replace it without charging a difference, or refund his money. (Pretty standard customer service, since we’d f**d it up.) When Bill came in and noticed what I was doing (providing a replacement cooked meal free of additional charge), he decided that I should have to pay for the dish I hadn’t charged the customer for, out of my tips. But he didn’t just have me give him the menu price for the dish - he called me back into the office, took inventory of my tips for the entire evening, and decided on what his cut should be. After calling me a thief.nnAnd of course, waitresses don’t have health insurance. But I’ve also worked for another local (who shall remain nameless while he lives) who wouldn’t pay a decent living wage, but offered health insurance, or so I thought when I took the job. Turned out to be a bait and switch: after the months I worked to qualify for the health insurance program, it turned out that he wanted me to pay for the coverage completely out of pocket, with no matching contribution on his part whatsoever. In fact, I would have been the only employee on the program, which he only offered after my repeatedly asking for more information. This benefit would have cost very nearly my entire paycheck for the month. But he regularly expected me to put in additional hours with little notice, and often threatened to let me go if I tried to take (unpaid) sick or vacation time. Not to mention the terrible interpersonal working environment he encouraged - including an extremely unprofessional manager he hired, who created an atmosphere of employee in-fighting and gossip, and whose management style he took absolutely no interest in monitoring. And the old, sick building we were working in, which he owned but took absolutely no interest in maintaining, even after conditions started to get dangerous. (Low overhead! But even so we couldn’t expect decent wages.) nnSo the moral of the story: Local doesn’t always beat big corporate when it comes to job benefits, tangible or otherwise. In my experience, faceless corporate culture may be pretty hard to swallow, but the up-close-and-personal relationship you may develop with a local owner won’t necessarily translate into better pay and/or treatment. 2008-09-19 13:04:02.0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Local worker 155.97.15.200 7C01C22D-14D1-13A2-9F23B048D58C108B 5895EB9A-14D1-13A2-9F4B9F848D697B38 I am astonished at the lack of giving a shit about a child’s welfare! This is not a debate on whether or not it is ok to have your own f(*)(&^(d up life style or religion. This about a child!

I don’t give a crap about who is better equiped to write an article on these people, I do care about the decision they are going to make to protect these childen. When will this state stand for the rights of a child? When will this country stand up for the rights of a child, or shall we just do like we have for many years past look the other way!

I have dined at Fresco many times over the years and have found the experience to be slowly diminishing over the years. The chef (whichever one they have this year) has always been able to prepare a tasty meal. The service and management, however, seem to have been in a steady decline for a couple of years now. You used to be able to recognize the management and wait staff--and they would recognize you. I swear I had the same server on my anniversary in 1996 a decade later. Those recognizable, welcoming faces are now long gone, replaced by a less-than-enthusiastic staff. Perhaps you are doing your best with the tools at your disposal to rescue another dining establishment from the axe?

But in my world, the truth you mangle for money is not only the life I have endured, but the lives and truths of millions of children who have their innocence and human dignity obliterated by the kind of men you represent. nnSure, our governement assures us that if we can pay a good attorney and buy a handsome suit for the court proceedings, we have the right to serve as little time as possible for our crimes. Right? Just doing your job?nnWell Mr. Mooney, doesn’t your civic duty end when you’ve collected your handsome fee? Or, did the defendant and his family kick-in a little extra for your insightful musings? nnWhat qualifies you to diagnose me with extreme paranoia? Is it paranoid to assume that if your husband has confessed to downloading and saving child pornography at his office, he might be lying when he says Oh no, I never did it at home.? Instead of trying to determine what had happened in my home, would you have proposed I obtain a lobotomy instead?nnYou state that my husband merely accessed child pornography because he was depressed about our separation. In my experience as a therapist, I’ve found that people generally respond to depression by accessing, downloading, copying and saving massive amounts of child pornography. They don’t deal with depression through more conventional means like seeking help and/or taking prescribed medications (insert laugh here.) By the way, didn’t your client tell the FBI that he was on medication to treat depression? How depressed was he; really? He told me that his greatest stressors stemmed from his lack of help at the office, which led to his lack of sleep, which led to the need for him to stay up until all hours of the night on his computer. By the way, when I offered to help him with his backlogged data entry, he declined. If you would like to know the true meaning of the word regret, it’s that I bought my ex husband’s poor overworked me story.nnWas I obsessed with child pornography as you claim? The answer is an emphatic NO! With Rogers support, I had left my childhood abuse behind. By the year 2000, I was no longer having flashbacks. I had achieved that which I try to assist all victims in achieving; distance. The past was finally the past. My father and his actions were finally distant memories. I focused my life on not only helping victims of sexual abuse, but on victims of physical, psychological, ritual, and environmental abuse as well. Adults and children. Children and adults (sometimes paths cross.) Male and female. Rich and poor. Pain is pain is pain. PTSD, depression, anxiety, dissociation. Abuse leaves a trail of survivors you would be humbled to meet. But you wont. You are too busy collecting the filthy lucre of perpetrators. How sad.nnThere are people who believe in God’s ultimate justice and those who don’t. I assume that you count yourself among the latter. Just keep in the back of your mind, that on the day you are asked to account for your life and your actions, you will stand before He Who Knows All. You will not have a lawyer because, well, because lawyers like you go elsewhere. But maybe, just maybe, you can base your defense on the fact that you were just depressed. nn nI 2008-04-23 14:36:01.0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Gina Zhdilkov, LCSW 207.200.116.136 7D11B539-14D1-13A2-9F4ADE54F694B176 787E6FD9-14D1-13A2-9FDCFD23846D9B9A This Mooney person makes an absolutely disgusting statement. According to the author of the article, Mooney claims it was Greer’s post-separation depression and Zhdilikov’s obsession with child porn that led to his client’s problems.nnIt is quite common for persons who are sexually aroused by nude and provacatively posed children to rationalize, or offer excuses, that enable them to avoid responsibility for their own actions. And here we have a person’s own attorney blaming the crime of this man Greer on his ex-wife, who herself had been the subject of childhood abuse. A tragic addition to an already tragic story.nnGreer doesn’t need an attorney who accuses innocent victims of causing Greer’s own deviancy - he needs a qualified therapist. It is commonly held by professisonals in psychology and psychiatry that pedophilia is most often the result of experiences, interactions, or arrested emotional development that occurs during that persons own childhood. I hope that Greer gets the help he needs in prison - but at least in prison he is away from my children. There is a frighteningly high incidence of child pornographers who volunteer to babysit or take care of children. Also, I hope that in prison he is not able to contribute to further child abuse by continuing to engage in the collection and enjoyment of child pornography. 2008-04-23 14:55:22.0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Phil 209.63.233.50 7D264CF0-14D1-13A2-9F1324F93967FD7E 57D41F3C-14D1-13A2-9F188B4D76D07182 OK you two, don’t make me turn this car around!

I live at Artspace and have lived here for several years. Yes, things have changed some for the better and some for the worse. I have also taken the time to educate myself on tax credits from how the tax credits are allocated to how they are received and potentially recaptured. It can potentially cost an owner several hundreds of thousands of dollars for even having our apartment out of compliance at Artspace, I do not agree with how thing were handle by Kris Montoya or EMG but I can understand why. Everyone has to realize that everyone living at Rubber Company or Bridge Projects could have lost their housing. The government could have recaptured so many of the tax credits that the investors who actually purchased the tax credit would have stepped in and taken over the building. Requiring everyone to vacate and start over with their own people. I do not think that people realize the importance of being in “Compliance” and how much it can cost the owners, investors or residents. nnI was also accused of committing fraud and received an eviction notice and when I went into talk to Kris Montoya, she was unwilling to discuss the “discrepancies” in my file; however I was very nice but very persistent at which time I think Kris realized that I was not going to go away and she dealt with me. In the end, I was able to provide the required documentation that allowed me to continue my residency at Rubber Company. Yes, it was frustrating and yes, it was belittling. I felt like I was guilty until I proved myself innocent. I do feel bad for all of my neighbors that were evicted, but if they did not disclose information, it is fraud and they should have to leave. I don’t want to be homeless because someone else lied when I have told the truth.nnIn doing my research, I have found that this type of thing happens when another management companies come in and takes over a project. All management companies have their own way of doing things and regardless if the old management company did in fact mess up, none of us will ever know since they are not going to admit it. I just know that this whole tax credit stuff is very confusing and people working in this field have to go through intense training to become certified. I do not know what kind of certification Kris Montoya has, if any and if she is not certified, she should have to be. nnI do find it interesting that at the meetings with the Artspace tenant association, many people have said that what Kris Montoya and EMG is doing is illegal but yet several judges have rules in EMG’ favor and residents have been locked out or their apartments. If anyone knows anything about this, please shed some light on this for me.nnI have heard several things around the building over the last couple of weeks that do not make a lot of sense. I heard that one of the residents that was being evicted fired their attorney and worked out a deal with EMG’ attorney to get all their stuff back. I also heard that the original judgment was like $16,000 but Kirk Cullimore settled for half. Again, why would a judge make a ruling in such matters if what Kris Montoya and EMG are doing were illegal? nnI also heard that the lady that is disable that just received an eviction notice was because she has someone living with her that is not on the lease, which is a major lease violation according to the house rules of Artspace. nnI also heard that one of the residents that was being evicted signed an agreement with EMG’ attorney to move out at the end of October and one of the requirements of the agreement was that he needed to provide information to Kris. I guess when he went into the office; Kris Montoya asked him if he could stay, would he want too. From what I understand, the resident just signed a new six-month lease. This is what confuses me even more, she didn’t have to let him stay. I just don’t know what to believe anymore. nnPlease don’t think that I’m defending Kris Montoya, because I still have some bitter feeling towards her for the stress and anguish she caused me earlier this year. I do know that since I have submitted all my paperwork and paid my rent on time, she doesn’t bother me. I pay my rent and abide by the house rules and go on my marry way. I figure that if I do what I’m suppose to do, they won’t have any reason to bother me or serve additional eviction notices. I love where I live and hope to continue to live here for a long time.

I know for a fact that Kris Montoya was working somewhere else when EMG took over Artspace because she was my manager at Avion another community manager by EMG. She did a lot for our community and not one of the residents of Avion was evictied for any reason. nnKris went above and beyond to help me out I am disabled and she would often check up on me and my kids to make sure things were going ok, she would offer to take us places and even walk our dog. She is a wonderful person who loves to help others. I hate that you people are blaming her for this. Do you realize she is just doing a job. She is a single mom and needs a job to pay her rent or she would be homeless. nnLast year around Christmas, she sent around a letter to all the residents of Avion asking for donations of food, toys, blankets, coats and mittens to give to the homeless shelter; however she said she heard about a family at Avion that was in need of food and toys for their children. One day she asked if I wanted to go shopping with her since my boys were around the other familys age and she has a daughter and didn’t know what boys like. I went with her shopping and bought some toys and food, which Kris paid for.. I wanted to help but couldn’t afford to give money but did have some extra wrapping paper and the time to do time to wrap presents. When we got back to my home, we brought everything in when she said Merry Christmas and that all this stuff was for my boys and me. Still to this day, I cry every time I think about what she did for us. It wasn’t a lot but it was defiantly the thought that counts. nnIf this started when EMG took over Artspace, Jessia Norie said that EMG took over in October 2007, Kris was at Avion until the first of March.

You have however, just self appointed yourself to be accountable for any child porn Mr. Greer may get a hold of while in prison, as well as watching him when he gets out. You’ll be very busy keeping him away from computers, parks, schools, churches, childrens’ birthday/play establishments, etc. Oh, and by the way, you and your other partner in crime, Mr. Cassell, might want to think about keeping Mr. Greer away from your own children and/or grandchildren, nieces, nephews...nIn searching the Utah DOPL sight for your therapist license, it seems one doesn’t exist. In contacting the American Bar Association it appears that in no state is there any Law School which combines a ’Graduate Program’ in counseling, psychology or social work. Where did you obtain your education to become a therapist? Before you attempt to diagnose any one else, you might consider going back to the graduate program and asking for your money back. You totally got burned! Well, better let you get back to being your Pedophile Brother’ Keeper, you have a lot on your plate.

Posted // April 29,2008 at 18:12 Given the seriousness of his client’ crimes “ and Mr. Greer did confess to his crimes “ and given the pervasiveness of child pornography, I find it reprehensible that attorney Jerome Mooney would stoop so low as to blame anyone for Mr Greer’ actions but Greer himself. I understand that everyone has a right to a defense, but that defense should never include putting the victim on trial. I have every confidence that Roger Greer’ sick deprivation of collecting and viewing internet child smut began long before he met Gina, and that the only thing sharing Gina’ past did for him was get him off even more.nnIt’ been a long time coming, but here is a small measure of satisfaction for “the victim.”. Thank you Shephen Dark for telling this story, and thank you Gina for having the courage to put yourself out there so others might see in you the true advocate.
