Whitehead Enters Alford ‘No-Contest’ Plea, Faces Two to 20 Years in Jail at January 19 Sentencing

(Whitehead posing with his attorney outside the courtroom after today’s hearing.)

Mike Whitehead made an Alford plea of “no-contest” to felony charges of attempted sexual assault in Nevada State court today and could face between two and 20 years in State prison at his January 19 sentencing. The minimum jail term for the “category b” offence is 2 years, which could mean Whitehead may get out after a year and change on good behavior. This may not seem like a positive for a man facing jail time, but considering he was originally arrested on charges of sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, open and gross lewdness and also faced possible drug charges involving 40 marijuana plants found growing in his home, “Iron Mike” is likely counting his blessings that State prosecutors accepted his lawyer’s plea deal for the lesser charge.

For those not familiar with what an Alford plea is, there was another high profile case recently that cast a light on the procedure.

The West Memphis Three entered a similar plea, which basically is like saying, “I am not admitting guilt, however given the facts or testimony against me, I don’t believe I can win this case,” before entering a plea of “no contest” to the charges last month to charges that they murdered a trio of boys back in 1993 when the accused were teenagers and were released minutes later after having served 17 years in prison for crimes they have maintained they did not commit. The case was based solely on circumstantial evidence and testimony.The term was coined for a 1970 plea by Henry Alford who was on trial for murder at the time and was facing the death penalty. The rationale behind the plea is to save the court the time and hassle of a lengthy court case and to hopefully receive a lesser punishment as a result, while allowing the accused to maintain his or her innocence.

Under Whitehead’s negotiated agreement, the state will make no recommendation at the time of sentencing, providing he is not found through psycho-sexual testing to be a high-risk offender, in which case he will be eligible for probation. Whitehead’s weapons that were confiscated by Metro Police will also be forfeited.

I'm not full of shit dumbfuck. a deal like that means witness problems. Ask absolutely anyone who works in a District Attorney's office. Ask them how witness advocates feel about deals made with sex offenders and there popularity. Ask any honest DA what the most common witness problems are. They'll tell you the same I did.

Look Penis joke if I said that a swifty mop was the best way to clean up a fucking jizz both after a Ukrainian used it and you disagreed I would defer to your obvious professional judgement. Eat me.

How can you be "factually correct" in claiming someone isn't a scumbag? Last I checked, 'scumbag' was a concept rooted in majority opinion, that thing you say you don't really care about. And if I'm not mistaken, wasn't your counterargument 'they were probably a couple of skanks who made the whole thing up'? Why yes, I can see why a plea of no-contest would vindicate that position. Like I noted above, if you're going to gloat, you should save it for a case when you aren't totally full of shit.

^Regarding the last part, I meant figuratively. Not LITERALLY sit on the corner...with a creepy smile... watching you guys, Iron Mike style. I'm not the one on trial here!

How the hell did I miss out on the last Whitehead article, is my question? Sounded like good times! Now, I wouldn't have gotten involved in the convo/festivities since I don't have any expertise in the matter at hand, but I certainly would have sat in the corner... smiling...and watching you guys go at it.

@nickyroose: Nah, I didn't take it to heart, I just like to argue and whenever possible make people feel/look stupid (it's one of my more redeeming qualities). If everyone on here got along things would get boring in a hurry, so keep trash talking me or anyone else who dares challenge you and I'll do the same.

Oh noes! A guy with a penis joke for a name thinks no one agreed with me!! I was factually correct and I'm not here for popular opinion even though at the end all the intelligent responses conceded at least part of my point. I don't chase ambulances I free child molesters dumbshit. So relax. My only point is best surmised thusly "No one wants to think they need a friend like me until they do"

Crushco well good to hear your not butthurt little tard like bic dick up there. Good ya

Good to see you could take a break from chasing ambulances to gloat over your "victory" in the last Whitehead story, the one where no one but Xenophon agreed with you. I'm sure Whitehead only plead no-contest because he really didn't do it, not because he had nothing to gain from pleading guilty and his alibi was total shit. Keep up the asslicking, and I'm sure you'll have enough internet scumbag trade that you can stop spending your afternoons sticking business cards under windshield wipers on skid row.

Hmmmm, I think I might like to try some psych-sexual testing, as long as it's not with Mike Whitedickhead.
