Former MMA fighter War Machine was found guilty by a Las Vegas jury on multiple charges filed by her ex-girlfriend and porn star Christy Mack, in 2014. Apparently, War Machine was charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, and beating by the porn actress. The jury found the former mixed martial arts fighter guilty on 29 of the 34 charges brought against him.
War Machine Was Able To Elude More Serious Charges
Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver was able to avoid more serious charges such as two attempted murders due to a jury deadlock. The former MMA fighter War Machine used his birth name during the course of the trial. Some observers believe that he can be given a sentence of life in prison with the juror's judgment.
The Defense Attorney Admitted His Client's Guilt
In a surprise move last Thursday, Jay Leiderman, the defense attorney of MMA fighter War Machine conceded his client's guilt on eight of the 34 charges. These include punching, domestic battery charges and injuring Mack. The porn actress gave her testimony on the witness stand for eight hours. She revealed how Koppenhaver beat and raped her months before he assaulted her.
Leiderman, in court, admitted that his client did it. He used his fists to punch Macky in her face, he admitted. The former MMA fighter War Machine was also charged with threatening Corey Thomas, a male friend of Macky. Apparently, Koppenhaver found them together in bed, sometime in 2014.
During the trial of MMA fighter War Machine, the prosecutors played the audio recording of the 911 call of Mack. Muffled screams and sounds of a struggle were heard from the audio clip. The prosecutors explained that it was during the time of Koppenhaver's attack on Mack.
He Was Caught Attacking Another Woman
After the attack, former MMA fighter War Machine spent 10 days on the run. He was finally arrested in Simi Valley, California, inside a hotel room on Aug. 18, 2014. Guests in the hotel apparently reported that he was assaulting another woman.
