WARREN — A Hubbard man who has been accused of raping a 6-year-old girl on a live Internet broadcast complained Wednesday about his treatment in jail.

Timothy Michael Gaut, who has a foot injury, is not allowed to use crutches, which could be used as weapons against corrections officers.

Gaut complained that jailers and inmates have referred to him as the ‘‘Easter Bunny rapist’’ after seeing him hobbling around.

His attorney, Anthony Consoldane, said Gaut claims he heard voices in his head, that he can’t sleep at night and is on suicide watch inside the Trumbull County Jail.

‘‘I want him to be in a hospital,’’ Consoldane told Trumbull County Judge W. Wyatt McKay.

Gaut, 32, of Gary Drive, is due back in court May 2, after a psychological evaluation is completed. The evaluation is to offer opinions on the defendant’s competency and sanity. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Gaut was arrested Jan. 28 when police said he still was in the process of soliciting online a man who turned out to be an undercover federal agent posing as a man offering his young daughter — another federal agent — for sex. They settled on $250 for the sex.

Gaut also faces a federal indictment in U.S. District Court of Eastern District of Virginia for ‘‘coercion and enticement of a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity and distribution of child pornography’’ since the federal agents were working out of Fairfax, Va.

Locally, Gaut, a one-time electrician, faces nine counts of rape that carry potential life sentences. One of those alleged rapes occurred in January and, under new laws, carries a life sentence with parole eligibility after serving 15 rather than 10 years. Other rapes occurred as far back as the fall of 2003 when the girl was age 3, the indictment states.

Besides another charge of gross sexual imposition and one for importuning, Gaut also faces nine other counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor — all occurring earlier this year.

It was Jan. 26 and continuing through Jan. 27 that the federal agents, posing as ‘‘Alyson’’ and her father, ‘‘Rich,’’ communicated with Gaut in an online chat room and later by telephone, the indictments state.

Rich told Gaut of his 11-year-old daughter, describing her as sexually experienced. Gaut inquired as to how much it would cost to have sex with her and elaborated on what types of sex he likes.

The indictments claim that Gaut offered to buy gifts for Alyson and described his own private parts before sending the live video of what police said was a rape.

The federal officers immediately contacted Hubbard police after viewing the video and the local officers got the search warrant to ensure the safety of the victim, the indictment states.

Police said the victim is now in the custody of Children Services.

Stop the world, I wanna get off! That there are people that would sell their children for sex beggars belief... sanctus, your report states that the man raped a 6 year old on a live internet broadcast. Does that mean that it was reported on a live internet broadcast, or that the act was performed via intenet broadcast? I mean, if the latter is the case, then he must be mentally ill to think that he would get away with such iniquity!

Pleading not guilty by reason of insanity, what a crock. This pisses me off so much that I an having trouble writing this post. Compaining about his treatment in jail, he should also be put on bread and water. Claiming insanity is like saying the devil made me do it, he is such a coward.

Cites Mistreatment... boohoo for him. If he think he is being mistreated right now, wait until he is introduced to general population.

Yes, the general prison population seems to have its own code but I wouldn't be overly congratulatory. I remember the revamping of the juvenile justice and detention system years ago. They had to. Seems the general population liked raping the young teens when given the opportunity.

I love these news stories. If you work your way through it, you can almost figure out where in the world it's from.

Oh, look. It's the Outrage of the Day! Brought to you by Sanctus, of course. Don't forget to get up in arms, and rant and rave about some obscure thing from somewhere.

Hey, Sanctus - how come so many of your outrage of the day stories involve rapists and child molesters? You on some outrage of the day mailing list?

I couldn't agree more! The more we are aware, the more care we will take to ensure that children are not exposed to this sort of thing... I, for one am shocked that this sort of thing is so prevalent, stunned to think that a parent would sell their child to these dysfunctional fiends. I think sanctus has children, and therefore is more aware than some, of the dangers to them.

I think it reflects an obsession of sorts. Look at the threads about child rapists, torture / sodomy, etc etc. Seriously, I think someone needs to see a shrink. I don't think it's healthy, it's like a fixation. You read the titles of the threads, and you can guess who started it...but why spend so much time LOOKING for these stories:

Accused child rapist cites mistreatment
Torture, sodomy alleged in shrink case
Teen rape-kidnap victim says he feared drugs in food, drink
Man Accused Of Raping Mother While Holding Toddler
Sex ed revised for the times
I Didn't Stop Rape - I Joined In

One of these things is not like the others.... one of these things just isn't, the same... lol.
I can see where you'd equate the rest of the articles to a trend, but an article about sexual education being lumped in with rape and sodomy articles? Doesn't compute.
