Accused man forces jury to watch his sex tape

Jurors may have to see some stuff they might never be able to unsee if a defendant who’s acting as his own attorney gets his way.

The Reno mayoral candidate and business owner Gary ‘Sensei Rex’ Milton wants to introduce sex tapes and intimate photographs of himself and his wife as evidence in his criminal trial to try to prove that his marriage was real and not just undertaken for immigration purposes.

“You want to see these videos. She does everything. EVERYTHING.”

The trial of ‘Master Rex’ — which starts Thursday in federal court in Reno — has nothing to do with sex.

The Nevada-born former karate champion, is charged with marriage fraud and two counts of lying to immigration authorities.

“Is there a law against falling in love? I love Svetlana. The fifty thousand is just a dowry!… Kind of……Seriously bro, you gotta see these videos.”

The 34-year-old businessman is accused of operating a fraud system involving several Russian crime families. Prosecutors say the films prove nothing.

“It’s almost as if he wanted to get caught. He seemed well prepared and all too eager about presenting his evidence.”

Judge Acker has already ruled them as “valid evidence that we must watch.”

The trial starts this summer.

Sensei Rex, once arrested for fighting drag queen with a tiki torch while dressed like KKK member, now running for mayor

Since Halloween 2004, Gary ‘Sensei Rex’ Milton has not kept quiet. On that evening two years ago, the Reno resident donned an ironic KKK costume, grabbed a tiki torch, and went to the epic Foxy Olive’s holiday party. By the time the night was over, ‘Sensei Rex’ had gotten into a brawl with a drag queen, a scuffle that would eventually land him in criminal court facing felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (tiki torch).

Ever since, he’s been a constant presence in town, making endless speeches about the injustice of his case at City Commission meetings and handing out packets of information. But his one-issue assault on the town’s political establishment has grown: ‘Sensei Rex’ is now running for mayor.

“I’ve talked to every stripper in this town,” He tells Reno Times. “I get a real good feel for what’s going on in the city. People ain’t happy with what’s happening.”

Milton’s own case breaks down to what he says is an inaccurate perception among law enforcement that he was an aggressor in the fight with the drag queen. Actually, Milton says he was just defending himself, and in November, he’s scheduled to go to trial on the assault charge.

In the meantime, ‘Sensei Rex’ has thrown his hat in the race to unseat current Reno Mayor Bob Cashell. Realtor Jeremy Nguyen is the other challenger.

Milton admits that his run for office stems from his criminal case. But the 34-year-old longshot — who has less in his campaign piggy bank than anyone else in the race — has gone all-in on his campaign. Milton’s website lays out his detailed thoughts on a variety of issues, from education to crime to brothel pricing. He says his ‘club to club’ politicking has put him in touch with the real issues facing the town.

“If voters care about the real issues: taxes, parking and the never ending war against raccoons, then I will win hands down,” he says. “I am an eagle and America is my sky.”

‘Sensei Rex’ is equally sanguine about his upcoming court date: “I’m very confident, that tranny swung first.”

Reno man claims girlfriend was kidnapped by holograms.

A 34-year-old man from Nevada’s Washoe County told deputies late last month that intruders had abducted his girlfriend with the assistance of “holograms,” Reno Gazette-Journal reported Thursday.

The man, whose name has not been released, was “extremely agitated” and holding a baseball bat when officials arrived. He told them that “the men” abducted his girlfriend and that “they used holograms to project signals on the walls to get him to do what they wanted and to communicate with each other,” according to a sheriff’s report.

The responding deputy located the woman in question, who was at a nearby mobile home with the man’s aunt. The aunt told investigators that the woman was drunk, and that no one had chased her.

Officers searched the couple’s home and also patrolled the area nearby, but according to the report, “no criminal activity [was] associated with this call.”

The property’s manager said that the last time sheriff’s deputies visited the trailer was when the man was patrolling around with a pair of nun-chucks, while the woman sat in the road saying she was digging for gold. The manager also said she was planning on evicting them soon.

This is by no means the weirdest claim that he has made to officers.

In 2005, he was charged with domestic violence but claimed that a ghost was the one who punched his girlfriend.

Man flashes buttocks at IHOP after impersonating a police officer to get free food.

A Reno man allegedly posed as a police officer to get a free meal at IHOP early Friday morning and then flashed his buttocks at a server when the ruse didn’t work.

Gary ‘Sensei Rex’ Milton , 34, entered the IHOP around 1 a.m. Friday and told a server who asked if he had money, “No, but I am a cop, and I get food for free,” according to a police report obtained by the Nevada Sagebrush. ‘Sensei Rex’ then flashed an Reno Police Department insignia patch from his wallet. He was reportedly asked about having cash before ordering because the IHOP manager recognized him as not having money to pay for his meals.

When the server told him that police officers pay for their food and asked him to leave, Milton responded, “I’m not going anywhere until y’all feed me.”

He then threatened to beat up the IHOP server and shouted, “Hey buddy!” before dropping his pants and exposing his buttocks to the IHOP employee, according to witnesses.

‘Sensei Rex’ then allegedly caused a scene when police responded to arrest him, saying, “I’m a Green Beret! If I die, Obama dies!”

The Nevada Sagebrush reported Milton then bragged about knowing the Reno police chief and said his “retired brothers will help me out.”

The 34-year-old man is facing charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer, trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Reno man attempts to smoke crack in ICU, almost burns down hospital.

Reno Gazette-Journal: Gary ‘Sensei Rex’ Milton was arrested on Christmas Eve after allegedly taking ‘crack cocaine’ into the Intensive Care Unit at Renown Regional Medical Center to share with a patient there.

A fire broke out when the patient, who was on oxygen, tried to smoke the cocaine from a homemade smoking device Milton brought. “The potential was there for a lot of damage,” said Reno police Lt. Donald Fountain. “It could have been a lot worse.”

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
