‘Agreement’ in works on sex assault charge for Mike Whitehead

by Dave Toplikar | source: lasvegassun.com
 

A plea deal appears to be in the works for mixed martial arts fighter Michael "Iron Mike" Whitehead, who was charged in April 2010 for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in his home.

Whitehead was to have had a preliminary hearing this morning in front of Justice of the Peace Janiece Marshall.

However, Whitehead did not attend and his attorney, Keith Brower, told the judge that Whitehead was out of custody in Arizona and had not been able to attend today's hearing.

"The state and the defendant have reached an agreement on this matter," Brower told the judge. He asked the judge for 30 days or three weeks to get Whitehead back to court.

"He is stuck in Arizona," Brower said.

We live in a society that upholds the 'innocent until proven guilty' mantra.What is more fucked up is that you are pre-judging the guy based on the fact that he hung around with a train-wreck of a girl which is, ironically, far more judgemental.And besides that who here isn't guilty of keeping a headcase woman in the vicinty in the hopes of helping her get back at daddy?

Im not defending him only because he's a fighter. I am because he's a good dude and i know this is a bullshit situation started by someone who e should have cut out of his life years ago.

hypothetical:random guy gets popped in sexual assualt case.police come to get him and find mass grow operation.possibly facing felony drug and sex charges.Suddenly no talk of drug charges. sex charges pled down.random guy probably snitched on others to aid the "war on drugs", and see daylight again.

Fencegrab, you're completely wrong. The alleged victim can have plenty to do with stalling and they have a say in the plea negotiations.

None of us know what is or isn't true but a lot of us are jumping to defend Mike ONLY because he is a fighter. Cindy, you weren't there, you know nothing but are willing to brand the women one way and clear Mike? I wasn't there either but I think the woman AND Mike are fucked up since a situation such as the one they were in doesn't happen to everyone. Blame her, fine but where there is smoke there is indeed fire and too often we fan the flames only because the guy plays ball or "fought for teh UFC". I'd like to hear from Whitehead. The woman might be "crazy" but Mike willfully associated with her which says a lot.

False accusation IMHO

 The accounts of the two girls was so unbelievable when this first hit the media that I'm frankly surprised this thing is even moving forward. Any girl that sits and watches her friend get raped while the offender feels her up at the same time (with no weapon or threat, IIRC) is a person whose story probably isn't close to being true, IMO.
