Decapitated Make First Court Appearance In Los Angeles


All four members of Decapitated made their first appearance in court yesterday, September 12th. The appearance saw each of the group agree to be extradited to Spokane, WA to face charges of of kidnapping in the first degree and presumably gang rape as well.

The band were arrested on the night of September 09th following a performance in Santa Ana, CA. Originally they were picked up on the kidnapping charge for allegedly holding a female against her will on their tour bus following an August 31st performance in Spokane, WA.

As court documents recently revealed, the same woman has accused the band of gang raping her on their tour bus that night. The case still looks to be under active investigation with the Spokane Police Department’s Special Victims Unit seeking out witnesses who may have seen what occurred outside the the venue of the band’s August 31st performance.

KABC filed the below report on the band’s court appearance. The group currently remain held in a Los Angeles county jail awaiting extradition. The band’s attorney Steve Graham previously commented: “Decapitated plan to fully fight the allegations that are brought against them, and we are fully confident that the other side of this story will be heard.”
