Mike Whitehead Pleads “No Contest” to Being a Deplorable Scumbag

If he wasn’t fond of living in a posh mansion with 17 other dudes, something tells me he’s not going to like his future abode much either. (Pic: Las Vegas Sun)

MMA veteran Mike Whitehead tapped out before heading into the biggest fight of his life inside a Clark County, NV courtroom yesterday. As reported by the Las Vegas Sun, prior to the start of his preliminary hearing, Whitehead and his attorney reached a deal with prosecutors that will see him plead guilty to one felony count of attempted sexual assault.

Those who have followed the case will note that the former TUF competitor was initially charged with doing far more than attempting a sexual assault. Whitehead was arrested for sexually assaulting a female friend following a bar-b-que at the fighter’s home in April of last year. Whitehead invited the victim and her friend to stay the night after they’d had too much to drink; once the pair had passed out in his bed, he allegedly removed the clothes of one of the women and began having sex with her while fondling the other female. The victim awoke and ordered him to stop, but he continued for several more minutes before sitting quietly in a chair next to the bed.

As part of the plea bargain, prosecutors will drop additional charges including sexual assault and open and gross lewdness. A search warrant served on Whitehead’s residence revealed a marijuana growing operation that boasted more than 40 plants. Strangely, charges for that crime were never filed. The decision to plea Whitehead out to lesser charges seems curious as well, given that in addition to the victim’s statement you have an eye witness to the crime who was also assaulted in the attack. The day after the assault, the victim received a text from “Iron Mike” which read, “Babe I’m really sorry about last night!! I’m very ashamed!”. Despite the double exclamation points, the heartfelt apology wasn’t enough to sway her from notifying the authorities.

Whitehead will be arraigned on September 12th. Should he pass a psycho-sexual report, the district attorney’s office will not weigh in on a sentence recommendation as part of the plea bargain.

Props to Intercept440 for the tip.

I hope you men aren't married or even worse, have children. This not the way grown men conduct themselves.
nickyroose- August 23, 2011 at 10:36 am
@ Xenophon Pretty accurate summation in total. More accurate then these women desired it for being in a pot house for sure.

But as they say, Prosecutor's don't get elected and get made judges by making great deals. No politician can resist a good public shaming of someone, especially a quasi-celebrity.

Which most likely (again, not definite) is caused by witness problems. In any rape investigation you run into similar witness problems. Juries want to believe rape or sexual assault victims 9/10. In fact most DA's will just put them up there and hope for the best because they know juries love victims. Only a couple of things defense attorney's can use,
1. Sordid Past of Victims,
2. Heavy Drug use (real drugs not weed)
3. Something odd about post assault behavior, which has been more than once, sexual contact with someone else immediately afterward, delays in reporting, etc.

No one makes deals to let rapists testify against drug dealers. Most people don't care enough. And it is too far out there. NO jury is wanna know a rapist is testifying against some higher up drug guy. The victim's advocate groups would be all over it.

Thanks for elevating the discussion

Unless one of them ever had to stand tall before a judge, or had prudent legal advice, most likely they would not know what the Nolo Contendere is.
.
And before another one of your fuck heads gets froggy and pops tall, as I have said before - I don't have a Juris Doctorate.
.
It's good to learn there is at least one on-board.
.
In some circumstances in Nevada (a state used for corporate pass-thru's) - during the initial appearance and arraignment if the defendant enters a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, the court may transfer the action to the Washoe County Drug Court, if appropriate, or order a presentence report and set a sentencing date consistent with the jail population management policies of the court.
.
Persons who enter a plea of guilty or nolo contendere and qualify for treatment in the Washoe County Drug Court may, if the department deems the defendant to be an appropriate referral, be immediately referred to such court without further proceedings in the department in which the criminal action is commenced.
.
My guess, is there is a plea agreement in the works and it involves the dirt weed the prosecutor never charged and left on the table. Maybe Whitehead was smart and had a cop or notable in the hook for a weekly dose of smoke? Then again the group of rape activists around here, might just see him get 17 years.
.
Being that Nevada is in a financially BUSTed condition I doubt the prosecutor wants to waste 17 years of tax revenues on Whitehead. Or, the D.A views the chicks with the sketchy accusations as borderline at best, and the D.A. doesn't want to carry this forward on the books.
.
Could be a 1,000 fucking things going on, and until the Judges gavel strikes the sound block, it doesn't matter - or did I get that wrong?
rcrc88- August 22, 2011 at 11:06 am
Those girls are not innocent. Sorry but you are hanging around with a guy who had pot in his house and in my experience you don't hang around people like that and NOT do the same drugs they're doing. More than likely they would probably buy weed off of him or he Mike fronted them with some pot. So you're friends with a guy who grows illegal drugs in his house, you get drunk at his house while no doubt wearing revealing clothing(I don't know the girls but I don't think they were wearing Amish dresses) you then pass out in one of his beds, sorry but if you didn't see something coming....I don't know. Doesn't make it right but a guy is a guy and 9/10 he's going to put his sexual needs first. Not only that but everyone knows what a sick society we live in. Gotta be on your guard. Don't make dumb decisions that will put you in a vunerable position. I'm not going to go walking through a gang infested neighbourhood and then cry when I get robbed or beaten. Cmon now.
nickyroose- August 22, 2011 at 10:18 am
Walmart cracks? Micky D's? Get the fuck out of here. If I was a fucking account or whatever it is the rest of you half-wits do this shit wouldn't bother me. I have a fucking JD I got through night-school while working as an investigator the entire time. I had an hour between two appointments so I got on my favorite MMa site. Low and behold this crap is what I find. And don't quote me Alford. Plenty of people plead no contest to cases they could beat but if someone said to you. Plead guilty and stay out of trouble for three years or most likely win at trial but if you lose go away for life, that ain't a decision at all. I saw a jury that had found rightly, a guy had a seizure and hit a bunch of little kids through no fault of his own get a mistrial because one fucking juror decided people drive too fast by schools. any attorney in the world can tell you the jury can flip on a dime.

tl:dr

@Intercept -- Maybe in theory but not in fact, in short I'm calling you crazy

@el_timbo -- tell you and your skanky roommate to eat a dick, we can't all by imagineers or whatever the fuck you do.

@liupk -- I didn't start this shit I always defend this site but I make a comment about how criminal defendants are often pre-judged and Cancrush gets butthurt someone noticed his journalism degree came from Phoenix University.

@ nickyroose call me crazy but when someone pleads no contest, it is practically identical to an alford plea, which mean he recognizes the prosecution has enough evidence to convict him, but still maintains his innocense... i think your argument is invalidated by that plea... period.
.
they let him plead to a lesser charge becuase he gave them something on the drug end of it

I'm still waiting to see them file charges against Mike Whitehead for Impersonating Sloth from the Goonies.

Hey fool, I never said I trained with Randy. I live about 300+ miles from Vegas. Go back, find and read what I posted. I never said I trained with or know Randy.
.
I said I would take you and the former Cup Cake to Randy's gym on a special trip so you could have you trendy ball caps and "T"-shirts signed by a pro.

GRIN - It's good too see someone around here school morons.

Here's a thought for this Sunday...
.
...You'll make a persuasive point because you understand that people do not always use logic to make decisions. If a man (or some dumb bitch masquerading as a man) didn't use reason to get into a situation, he/she cannot be reasonably talked out of it.

@nickyroose YOU GOT BUTT SLAMMED!!
CrushCo- August 21, 2011 at 7:40 am
@Nickyroose: I don't even know what press release you're referring to. The source I used, which is not a press release and which I linked to in the post, cites evidence such as the testimony of the victim and the witness and the apology text (and the unrelated pot growing operation). Sure, his text might have been an apology for puking in her purse for all we know. Maybe he didn't do it, but if the prosecution's case was as incredibly weak as you believe it to be due to non-facts that you've completely created on your own with not one iota of support to back them up, I'm curious why he didn't just go to trial. Based on the zeal and expertise you've shown in this forum, I have no doubt you'd make one hell of a witness in his defense. And yes, I used dictionary.com as a reference to give an official definition of a word. It's not that I don't know what the word means, it's that I prefer to use reliable sources for my information rather than simply conjure them up on my own. But I wouldn't expect you to understand that. And if you were as clever as you thought you were you would have found a way to get a job AND masturbate like every other 18 year old out there.
Pen Fifteen- August 21, 2011 at 6:35 am
Sounds like nickyroose and XENOPHON should get together and help Mike Whitehead figure out how to sue CP for libel. And didn't XENO claim he trained with Randy? He probably already knows MW.
liupk- August 21, 2011 at 4:16 am
@nickyroose: Cool, you used Google and found the site he used to define a word. It's not that funny, bro.. but at least those 10 years of watching Scooby-Doo really paid off for you.

Even after that wall of text, nothing's changed. You knocked on the writer for making a baseless conjecture when you did the same thing with those 2 girls. Admit it and move on. You're 28. You can start acting like an adult any time now.
el_timbo- August 21, 2011 at 12:33 am
Damn, I wish I had waited for my roommate to come home before posting... Her response to nickyroose's "real job" line was better:

"Somewhere, while nickyroose is posting, a Wal-Mart goes without it's greeter."

I'll let you get back to flame war now.
el_timbo- August 21, 2011 at 12:17 am
@Nickyroose: Dude, if you're posting this much in a flame war on an MMA website in one day, I hope to God it's a day off from that "real job" of yours. Otherwise someone's Big Mac's getting prepared poorly.
nickyroose- August 20, 2011 at 9:48 pm
Also I put your quotes into Google and lo and behold --

/dictionary.reference.(c)om/browse/probably


AHHAHAHahahahahhah.
nickyroose- August 20, 2011 at 9:46 pm
@Cancrush Yet again you stupid shit you don't have "Evidence" you HAVE A FUCKING PRESS RELEASE. IT IS NOT A FACT OR EVIDENCE. And despite what you read on fucking dictionarydotcom "probably" has a different meaning in the context of California Law. It means more probable than not. As in it is more probable than not that the prosecutor had serious amounts of witness problems.

I'm fucking 28. I had to get a real job and not just masturbate and repost fucking press releases. I know this website has a fucking tilt I've been on it since the start and I never shit on the writers. but this is fucking ridiculous, it's not writeen in a sarcastic way, I can tell because it's NOT FUCKING FUNNY THERE IS NO PUNCHLINE, Anyone else would have made an easy target like this a slam dunk but you fucked it with your hack writing. So in summation shut your stupid faggot mouth and continue to churn out absolute shit in between the decent articles written by literates.
CrushCo- August 20, 2011 at 9:03 pm
@Nickyroose: My apologies. I figured your 10 years experience as a "fucking investigator" would have endowed you with the ability to observe that this was a website known for a tinge of sarcasm and shit talking rather than straight-laced news pieces. I'd steer you in the direction of a website with "actual reporting", but I'm sure an old dick like you can use google. And just so we're clear, you didn't say that those chicks were "possibly" drug skanks, you said they "probably" were. "Probably" means "in all likelihood, or very likely", which is a strong statement to make with absolutely zero evidence to support it whatsoever. Perhaps I should have said that Mike Whitehead was "probably" a deplorable scumbag, since there is at least some actual evidence pointing to that fact.
Dana Mother Fcuking White- August 20, 2011 at 8:17 pm
@nickyroose
Amen brother! I once had the naive view that anyone found guilty or pleading guilty to something like this was a complete POS. Then, a buddy of mine got falsely accused of rape. The prosecution had no real evidence, but he couldn't take the risk of being found guilty, given the harsh penalties involved (e.g. jailtime and sex offender status). So, he plead guilty to aggravated assault, the ordeal almost destroyed his life.
fatbellyfrank- August 20, 2011 at 5:53 pm
After watching his effort on TUF, I'm surprised he was capable of anything
KINGMADE- August 20, 2011 at 5:29 pm
hard to defend a woman that got pass out drunk and went to sleep in a mans bed. Prosecutors probably got lucky he plead.
nickyroose- August 20, 2011 at 5:24 pm
Ps Fuckwad, "it’s irresponsible for me to write that a man pleading guilty to rape"

"rape" does not equal "one felony count of attempted sexual assault".

Read your own shitty copy fuckass.
nickyroose- August 20, 2011 at 5:22 pm
Shit I was off-site during my obvious Demoting. Well Cancrush read again, "Probably". Weasel word though it may be I am talking as experience from 10 years as a fucking investigator. If you spent as much time writing this piece of shit article that you spend on defending it this wouldn't be a problem. Or do you have some experience on common elements of sex crime plea bargains you didn't learn from watching fucking Casey Jones on fuckin' TBS.
