- Posted on January 10, 2011
Wrest, or Jef Whitehead, as his mother knows him, the man responsible for Leviathan, as well as a contributor to SunnO))), Nachtmystium and Twilight is being charged with sexual assault according to a report in the Chicago Sun Times. The article does not paint a pretty picture:
Jef Whitehead, 42, allegedly choked and beat his 26-year-old girlfriend unconscious by banging her head against a wall above Taylor Street Tattoo and Piercing, 1150 W. Taylor, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
He also attacked her with a pair of scissors, it’s alleged.
When she regained consciousness she discovered she had been sexually assaulted with the tattoo tools, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Tom McGuire said.
Whitehead then allegedly knocked her out again, McGuire said. When the victim woke up she was in the street outside the parlor, he added.
Yikes! I don't even know what to say. Obviously, dude is innocent until proven guilty. Whitehead is currently in police custody, being held on $350,000 bail.
