  6. I know this person and he is not at all the person you people are making him out to be. seriously. I dont see him as 'sick' or 'perverted' person at all and am pretty sure we'll find details out that it wasn't like we're all envisioning. I honestly feel like the 'sick' people are people who 'twist the truth' like you all who commented so negatively w/o knowing all the facts. Quit gossiping, get of the computer and go be that 'honest' person you all think you are.

  7. I have known Drew since he was young. He is a good young man that has always helped others and been a good citizen. the facts are he was on some pronographic site that had a couple under aged girls. ANYONE that looks at pron could have had this happen to them.

    keep your comment to yourself if you dont know well.

  8. where did you get that information. you dont get 21 counts of anything for 2 underage girls on a website. what actually happened?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Who are any of you to judge. The supreme court couldn't come up with a definition of what "Hard-core" Pornography was so who are you to determine what "sick" is, espcially when it could have just been a case of someone going to the wrong website. If you are so addapt at passing judgment, and since you all consider yourself so infoulable maybe you should get out of your house and off you laptops and do something besides blog all day. you are the true problem with this world today, not people like Drew Wherry

  11. The only truth in these postings is the fact Drew Wherry is a good person.Child porn terminology leaves a horrible connotation that is not the truth of what has happened here. Innocent until proven guilty.

  12. all im sayin is it sounds a little more serious than going to a wrong website. they were watching him for awhile. there is no doubt tho. his life gas permanantly changed. very sad.

  13. how do some of u assume to know the facts here.

  14. "Child porn terminology leaves a horrible connotation that is not the truth of what has happened here." what does this even mean??

    ReplyDelete
  15. BEFORE ANY MORE RUMORS GET SPREAD WHY DON'T ONE OF YOU PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT WHAT A GOOD PERSON HE IS AND SEEMING TO KNOW THE CASE TELL US ALL EXACTLY IN DETAIL WHAT WAS HAPPENING HERE?

    Knowing Drew it is very hard to believe this could be as bad as some are imagining, but on the other hand----> I also have trouble believing the FBI would go to the trouble of filing 22 felonies (1 for distribution) against someone who accidently stumbled into a website with a few 17 year old girls....

    Maybe someone who knows the FACTS should clear the air in detail before more rumors fly...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Drew is family to me, and we've known each other our whole lives. I just found out what happened to him today, and it breaks my heart knowing he is going through all this, and on top of it, knowing people are judging him when they dont even know what exactly happened. Drew is a smart, caring person, who would do anything for anybody, and its very hard to believe he would do something like this. I honestly dont believe what it says, they make it sound soo horrible when they put "child pornography"! I know Drew wouldnt do that. And all you people that are judging him... Innocent until proven guilty, and I know he's not guilty!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I know Drews family and they are nice, honest, hardworking people. He was raised with good values and it is very hard to believe he would do something like this. I really hope that this was a misunderstanding and he will be found innocent (I also believe in our courts. . innocent until proven guilty) Please everybody thats calling him a sicko, or a pervert, wait to see what happens with his trial. People are falsely arrested everyday unfortunately and I hope this is the case here. I wish they could be more specific when they say 'child pornography'. Were they 9 year olds? Were they 17 year olds? The charge is terribly vague. That to me would make a difference and I'm sure most people would agree with that. Until you know all of the facts (which I don't), please for his family's sake if nothing else, enough with all of the mean comments. They are just adding fuel to the fire.

  18. ok i am family and until shit doesnt get figured out it would be nice if all the people that are talking shit and what not would just leave him the fuck alone ive know drew for a long time and he is not a perv or anything like that so to all the people say bad things just remember carma is a real bitch

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have known Drew as long as anyone, and there is no way he did this.... You people better get your facts right before saying crap that is not true. His whole life all I have ever heard from him was; I want to be in the army and I want to be a cop.... Pretty sure that is not the person that looks up child porn!

  20. I am compelled to write due to the comments above. First, sites like this should be banned… our Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution basically states that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. We also have freedom of speech but this site is slanderous without a guilty verdict. Once someone is found guilty, they are fair game. Second, the “boxes of letters from kids” were highly likely sent as part of a program called Adopt a Soldier… every heard of it? Drew was adopted… a box of letters would have been sent to him. Don’t make something so innocent sound so sick! Third, basic training is a 9-week program with an additional 10-week AIT. How can anyone form an opinion about another soldier during this grueling period? The U.S. Army remolds individuals into soldiers through this process. Fourth, the FBI was not involved… reread the case report. Lastly, hurrah for Bryan… he’s the only one with balls enough to sign his name and stand behind his friend! What does that say for the rest of you? You don’t deserve to know the facts!

  21. The investigation began in March and charges were not filed until June, which means law enforcement felt confident with the evidence they had collected. As much as everyone would like it to be a mistake, we were all duped by him. Why would he admit to such charges?

    Sociopaths are unable to experience emotional responses for other people outside of their own personal interests.

  23. To the Anonymous person who commented on this site October 8th at 6:58 am who made the comment about Mr. Wherry being a Sociopath, I would just like to ask which community college you took your introduction to psychology class at? I would also like to know if you think taking that class really qualifies you to diagnose antisocial personality disorders. People much smarter and more qualified than you, such as people with Masters of even Doctorates in Psychology define a Sociopath as " A person, typically a male whose lack of conscience becomes plain before age 15, as he begins to lie, steal, fight, or display unrestrained sexual behavior." Anyone who knew Mr. Wherry growing up would tell you that he was the farthest from this profile. The definition continues, “About half of these children become antisocial adults, unable to keep a job, irresponsible as a spouse and a parent, and assaultive or otherwise criminal". I would assume that if the person who wrote this didn't know Mr. Wherry during adolescents they at least knew him as an adult. Even someone who knew him from his short time in the Army would be able to realize that joining the Army is the sort of social behavior that Sociopaths would avoid. I would like to suggest that the person who made the comment about Mr. Wherry being a Sociopath spend less time on the internet blogging and maybe read a damn book before going around making slanderous accusations on the internet.

  25. Those who remain close to Drew need to realize things will forever be different for him, as well as those who choose to have a relationship with him in the future. He has a stigma associated with him simply due to the charges brought against him. Yes, he has not been found guilty yet, but as someone else mentioned a major investigation took place and law enforcement decided to bring charges against Drew based upon what they found. Right or wrong...such is society. I am curious what facts those defending him have that the rest of us do not. I once considered myself his friend, but I can not do so any longer and I realize that is my decision. I have not slammed him in any way, but I have decided not to risk anything happening to myself or my family. I also wonder if he is in jail because I tried to contact Drew on several ocassions before I learned of the charges and he never responded. It might be helpful with those with "the facts" shared what they know.

  27. What you want to bet that Drew makes a deal so y'all never find out the ages of the kids he was fapping off to?

    ReplyDelete
  28. fapping off too? wtf does that even mean

    ReplyDelete
  29. To the person who has made the decision not to associate with Drew any longer… By your own words, you have written him off. Why do you care to know the facts? You’ve made your choice. Just go on with your “perfect” little life.

  30. It seems as though Mr. fapping off is the real sick one here! It takes a log of guts to hide behind anonymity.

  31. My name is Chad Oldham, and I am Drew's friend. I think that anyone who truly knows Drew is having a hard time wrapping their minds around all of this. I was in disbelief and deeply saddened when I heard what charges were being brought up against Drew. Despite all of this, what truly bothers me more is the negative comments on this website by a few assholes. I am sorry if Drew did something to make you dislike him... he may deserve your distain. What I don't get is the fact that some of you are watching, with utter delight, his downfall. Moreover, you're antagonizing the people who care about him.

  32. When is his day in court?

    ReplyDelete
  33. On the Alaska Court View website it says he has a Bail Hearing November 3rd in the events. Many of the hearings have been postponed it looks like... Since there is a bail hearing on the 3rd are we to assume that he remains incarcerated to this point??

  34. Drew needs to man up and admit his guilt so his family can begin to create a new normal for themselves and his victims can do the same.

    ReplyDelete
  35. As a Member of Drew's family, I would just like to say keep your uniformed thoughts to yourself. As far as your concern for the rest of our family, shove it up your ass. It takes a lot of nerve for you to say that Drew needs to man up when you don't even have the balls to put your name to your post. Drew has done nothing to harm anyone else, so I don’t know who these victims are that you speak of. I would like to request that you make no further accusations such as that, and I would like to let you know that once this response is posted, your opinions of this situation will be of no consequence to anyone in this family, that goes for all of you who choose to post negative remarks on this site.

  36. Well said DLW! There is nothing for Drew to "admit." Why would someone who is innocent admit any kind of guilt?!? Everyone is jumping to incorrect, uninformed conclusions, sadly, with delight. I’m thrilled you all have such perfect little worlds that you can cast such slanderous (yes, that's what this is) comments about a person who is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.

  37. I am a very good friend of Drew's, and he actually called me about this situation before he was even arrested, all of you who do not know this person please keep your comments to yourself as you dont know what kind of a person this man really is, he is one of the most decent, kind hearted, caring people i have ever met that would never ever hurt a child in any way, i am proud to call drew wherry my friend, anyone with information on his bail hearing today or any other info would be greatly appreciated, i call drews phone occassionally just to leave him an encouraging voicemail or message and hopefully soon he will be able to hear it from my own voice face to face, i talked to drew atleast once a week after we stopped playing football at niacc together, so if any of his family members could inform me of anything going on with drew i would appreciate it, and please for the people that dont know him, dont judge him, thats the lords job, not yours

  39. The following is captured from a story that aired on NPR on 11/9/2009...

    Pedophiles can exploit virus-infected PCs to remotely store and view their stash without fear they'll get caught. Pranksters or someone trying to frame you can tap viruses to make it appear that you surf illegal Web sites.

    Whatever the motivation, you get child porn on your computer — and might not realize it until police knock at your door.

    An Associated Press investigation found cases in which innocent people have been branded as pedophiles after their co-workers or loved ones stumbled upon child porn placed on a PC through a virus. It can cost victims hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove their innocence.

    Moral of the story: This could happen to you too!

  40. To all you people who posted hateful comments, just think how you would feel if it was a member of your family in this situation and people were making such terrible comments.You do not know Drew but I do, he is my nephew and I stand behind Drew.He is in my thoughts and prayers and there is absolutely no way Drew was involved in anything like this.He is a outstanding young man who will be found innocent of all charges.I saw the same article in the paper about pedophiles using other peoples computers to transmit child pornography,this would seem like a logical explanation for this situation because I can tell you Drew is absolutely incapable of being involved in child pornography , DDW

  41. Please come by and tell us if he is found innocent... or guilty.

  42. There have now been 43 different times you people have posted on this stupid site:
    -To those of you hating on Drew- Stop! Your comments don't do anybody any good whatsoever. What is the point of typing that stuff to bash Drew and hurt his family? Those comments were not needed and uncalled for.
    -To those of you defending Drew- From an outside perspective looking in we all want to believe Drew is innocent. Give us some news updates to show us why he is innocent! Answer simple questions about his current situation and take the doubt and rumors away! You telling the haters that he is a good person also solves nothing... It is just as pointless.

    What would be valuable and is needed are answers, which, you who have contact with Drew can provide...

    Here are some practice questions for you to start with...
    1.)Is he in jail?
    2.)What has he said about the incident? i.e.-is there anything he would like people to know?
    3.)Is he OK? Can any of these friends of his (like Mr. Sawyer and Mr. Oldham) communicate with him in anyway to show support or help in anyway whether it be through donations for defense or testimony etc...
    4.)What are the facts of the case? Did they find stuff on his computer he didn't know about or was he set up or was it just a wrong website visit?

    There is more good to be done by answering questions then anything else with this website. Let's try this new plan for a while and those other people might stop hating knowing how wrong they are.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This website is an open forum for people to talk about whatever they want. It is very probably that even if we were to answer some of your “practice questions”, people would still feel the need to post derogatory comments about Drew. Some of these newer posts must undoubtedly come from people just finding out about the situation, most likely from second hand sources. Right now those second hand sources are all you will be able to rely on. You need to respect the nature of this situation and realize that we cannot share all the facts with you, and we don’t feel the need to either. Information gets to those we deem necessary and no one else. You need to respect our right to keep this a family matter, and honor our wish of privacy. In time we may decide to let people know, or we may not, that is our right. For now you all just need to have a little faith in Drew.

  44. On Monday, the Associated Press reported that it had uncovered cases across the country of innocent people being labeled pedophiles after someone found pornographic images of children that had been placed on their PCs by a virus. The report also raised the possibility that pedophiles might exploit infected computers to remotely store and view their explicit images or videos without fear of detection.

    "We've had individuals claim that up front," McQuiston said. "Then as the investigation goes on, we've been able to prove otherwise."

    That proof comes in many different forms, often including a suspect's confession during a police interview. But McQuiston said it typically comes from an extensive forensic examination of the individual's computer that involves, among other things, a review of visits to known child pornography Web sites, the quantity and number of times saved images or videos were accessed by the user, and keywords entered into online search engines.

    "We put as much effort into proving that the behavior is going on as we do into proving that it is not going on," McQuiston said. "There's a lot that goes into these investigations. We've never once just gone off the images alone and said we're taking someone to jail."

  45. Phil Malone, a clinical professor at Harvard Law School and director of its Berkman Center Cyberlaw Clinic, agrees that a good forensic investigator should be able to tell the difference between files placed by a virus and ones deliberately downloaded.

    "It's the excuse of the moment for defendants," he said. "Lots of child porn defendants try to blame (images found on their computers) on viruses, but it's almost never true. You can actually figure this out. In the handful of cases that have been problematic, it looks as if everyone moved too quickly. The agency discovered material and immediately jumped to conclusions." Malone added that "good, solid forensics would be able to tell in virtually every case."

  46. First of all, I believe this article has no business being on the internet. I suppose that for those of you who have nothing better to do than hide behind your computers and knock down a person's self esteem would find this rather enjoyable. I'm sure many of you are hypocrites. That just goes to show how ignorant the majority of the American population is. Drew is a sweet, caring person and for those who have said less than kind things on this page, you have no right to judge. Don't open your mouth before you know all the facts - you will be made to look the fool. Even if you do know all the facts, keep your thoughts to yourself, no one wants your input. This man is in no way shape or form a threat to society. So, before you decide to post unkind words about a man you don't truly know, just think if something like this were to happen to your family member. As a member of Drew's extended family, I will stand behind him and support him because I know he is a good man. -TLTW

  47. I went to high school with drew at north cedar High school in iowa. I can honestly say I know him considering I know things like his eagle scout status and his wrestling carrer. I always felt like there wasn't something right about this guy. I wasn't the least bit surprised by this because of the lack of attention from females he had in highschool. That's the kind of thing that creates bad mental stability. I bet that the wacked it off to high schoolers to try and get over something from back then.

  49. To KG - isn't that like calling the kettle black?? You have a lot of sketetons in your closet or have you come out of the closet?? You were not a friend of Drew's - just because you knew of his wrestling career and the fact that he was an Eagle scout doesn't mean jack shit everyone that went to school with him knew that. As far as the lack of attention from girls you were not in Drew's circle of friends therefore you don't know what his personal life was like in high school 5 years ago or now. But if this comment made you feel like a "man" more power to you - you are one of the many losers that post negative crap about people who you know nothing about and the real sad fact is that you have nothing better to do like all these other people who just sit here and blog all day and write negative comments about people they don't know to make yourselves feel better. Who has the pathetic life??

  50. Seriously, people, this really is an open forum. And if you read other threads listed at this site, you would see the same commentators. We vent our anger and frustration with each other, and basically, if you don't like it, go somewhere else.

    I personally don't care what he's like "as a person". I've noticed his family curses and shows no dignity, so why should I respect them? He has been charged, so it is now open to the public. I am part of the public. Therefore, I shall speak if I feel the need.

    Those who suffer pedophilia do not share this information with their friends, family and loved ones. It's not something you brag about at a barbeque or family reunion. It seems an investigation found him worthy of arrest. And as for "innocent until proven guilty", that's for the courts and judges to decide, not me. I can judge all I wish. And please, don't throw something out of the bible at me about "judge not lest ye be judged". That's your God, not mine.

    I personally will consider him guilty until proven innocent, and I don't even know the guy. I've made that assumption merely from reading what you guys wrote. You aren't helping him at all.

    ReplyDelete
  51. first of all you are not a lady so refrain from using that in your title, as far as the family, you do not know any of us and I wonder what kind of person does not understand the principle of innocent until proven guilty and I wonder if your self righteous attitude would change if you or a loved one was charged with a crime.I would ask people for a little understanding here and refrain from anymore hurtful comments but with the way our society is today I am not sure that is possible.To all the people that have written positive comments about Drew, we appreciate the support and to the rest of you haters, I feel sorry for you.

  53. people like KG and southern lady are what makes me believe somedays that some people truly dont have a heart, making hateful comments and basically spitting in the face and kicking dirt on the people that truly KNEW drew as a person is definitely a great way to make them feel better about themselves, KG you are one of the most ignorant people ive seen on this board, saying drew became a pedophile because he didnt get attention from girls in high school? you werent drews friend, you didnt hang out with him, you didnt go to college with drew, you have no clue what he was like socially and how much he was accepted by everyone he met, and southern lady, yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but why come onto a board of a person you even say you have no clue who he is, and bash that person AND his family, doing that is what makes me disrespect you, not if you curse or use bad language, please take your hurtful comments somewhere in which you actually have some insight instead of cruising the internet looking for families to put down

  54. What are you going to do if he is found guilty? I realize you are family, but you need to open your eyes and look at the facts. This is a real possibility. Denial is normal, but there comes a time when you need to move past it. He was arrested in June and he is still in jail.

  59. When someone told me to google Drews name this is not what I thought I would find. I would have not done it because that is not me. But since I did I wanted to post that My heart goes out to the family. I pray this was all a mistake. But it's not for me to decide. I know nothing of the case. I just wanted to post I am thinking of you guys! Our kids have grown up together in our small town and my heart breaks for you all. I pray that Drew never reads these post! I only posted to say I am praying and thinking of the family with heavy heart. I hope this goes away soon for you all. Our Children are our life.

  63. One of the things I try to work on everyday is keeping my life in perspective. When I get to a point where I start to feel sorry for myself, I try to think about all the people in the world who have much harsher times ahead of them than I ever will. Whether it be soldiers sent overseas to face the atrocities of war, or victims of earthquakes and tsunamis who have their whole world ripped out from under them in the blink of an eye. When I think about these things I find I have little to complain about, and I feel it necessary to make sure that I keep that in my mind and in my prayers. It would be easy to think how seeing a site like this, about someone who I know personally, would affect me and my perspective on life. I guessing the affects this site has had on me are not what one would expect. When I read the posts on this site, I am overcome with feelings of gratefulness. It is not thankful that my life hasn’t been put on hold for 8 months that overcome me. It isn’t gratitude for the fact that my name and reputation haven’t been put up like a lamb for the slaughter on a sight like this. When I read the comments of people like KG and Southern lady it gives me a new perspective on life. I work out 6 days a week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday I work out with my team, but on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday I like to go down and do some extra work to help me stay in shape. Admittedly it is hard some days to do this, I think about the people who are just sitting and relaxing and I think, “why can’t I just do that”. Then while I’m running my brain starts to go through all the other things I could be doing with this time. I see myself sitting on the TV, or on the computer. The ways in which people like KG, and Southern Lady spend their time also comes to mind. When that happens my step quickens just a little bit. I take pride in the fact that I do not spend my free time looking for ways to kick people when they are down. When I hear about someone that I know who has fallen on hard times I do not immediately look for a way to make my opinion of the situation known. When I look at my life and the next few years ahead of me I feel I have enough to worry about with my own life, and I feel no need what so ever to belittle how others are living theirs. So I would just like the thank KG, and Southern Lady and all the other frequent bloggers out there for giving me the motivation to go out for a run, or to read a book instead of watching TV. But most of all for helping me keep this new type of perspective with me. I am thankful that I am able to see faults in myself and work on them as opposed to spending all my time and effort into finding faults in others and being critical of things I may not have full knowledge of. I used to think of this site during a workout, to give me that extra intensity. The anger I felt at the people who were posting such hurtful things about Drew helped me get through the workouts. I am no longer able to think about this site in anger. Now when I think about this site I feel more peaceful, and thankful for having found better hobbies than KG and Southern Lady.

  65. Now let's hear from the folks who defended pedo porn dog, sex offender Drew Wherry.

    "FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A former Fort Wainwright soldier accepted a plea agreement in which he will spend three years in prison for possessing child pornography.

    The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports 24-year-old Drew Wherry will also receive five years probation and be ordered to register as a sex offender at his formal sentencing on June 11.

    Investigators say Wherry actively looked for and traded images of child pornography before his arrest last June.

    Gee, isn't it great being buddies with a pedophile?

  69. "I have known Drew as long as anyone, and there is no way he did this.... You people better get your facts right before saying crap that is not true. His whole life all I have ever heard from him was; I want to be in the army and I want to be a cop.... Pretty sure that is not the person that looks up child porn!
    -Bryan Sawyer"

    "Well said DLW! There is nothing for Drew to "admit." Why would someone who is innocent admit any kind of guilt?!? Everyone is jumping to incorrect, uninformed conclusions, sadly, with delight. I’m thrilled you all have such perfect little worlds that you can cast such slanderous (yes, that's what this is) comments about a person who is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
    Cathy"

    Well said you two; a guilty plea goes to show maybe you friends and family didn't know Drew as well as you thought..... Looks like the haters had every right to voice their opinion and maybe it was the supporters who needed to get their facts straight...

  71. FAIRBANKS — A former Fort Wainwright soldier will receive a five-year sentence for possessing and trading child pornography.

    Drew Wherry, a 24-year-old who once served with the 472nd Military Police Company, pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of child pornography possession. As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, he will receive a five-year prison sentence with two years suspended. He also will be on probation for five years and will have to register as a sex offender. A formal sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 11.

    Investigators believe Wherry, who has no prior criminal history, was “actively looking for and trading child pornographic images” involving children as young as 12.

    He was arrested last June following an investigation by the Alaska Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crimes Against Child Task Force, the Anchorage Police Department, Fort Wainwright Criminal Investigative Division and other agencies.

    Defense attorney Rex Butler said his client has received a general discharge from the Army.

  73. Drew is a very good man! I know him, and I will continue to support him no matter what the case may be! I pray for him and his family daily and hope that he is able to stay strong through this ordeal. I guess all of you people casting stones are perfect so there's no use talking to you! Drew we love you man! Don't let this situation determine who you are! I'll always be here for you in Cedar Rapids, IA.

  74. His crime has everything to do with who Drew and will always be. Pedophiles never lose their perverse desires and cannot be rehabilitated. It's a fact.

    This degenerate sub-human is probably getting raped as we speak. Can you feel it Jessie? You probably dont have KIDS is why you "support" this pedophile scum. If you did, you probably wouldn't "love" him or want him around, thats if you have a brain and/or any common sense. ENJOY PRISON PEDO-BOY!

  76. Remember the old saying "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." History will repeat itself...only it will be worse. This situation does determine who Drew is as a person...a pedophile.

  78. To all the individuals hating on Drew through posts on this article...I have my middle fingers flying high in your direction. The so-called "update" is misinformation. An investigator was hired and he was proven to be a victim of an internet crime. Innocent until proven guilty is correct. As the famous quote goes...don't judge lest ye be judged yourselves.

  79. Sara, you can stick your middle fingers up your stupid ass, that is if you can make the reach around. Drew accepted a plea deal.

    The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports 24-year-old Drew Wherry will also receive five years probation and be ordered to register as a sex offender.

  80. It appears you need to get your facts straight on this one Sara. He plead guilty and has already served 2 years in total. (Look it up on the State Website for proof...)

    Funny how all the backers of his innocence have been so quiet since the plea, when you were all so vocal before the truth came out...
