13 Women Come Forward With Disturbing Allegations Against Ex-Anti-Flag Vocalist Justin Sane

Rolling Stone have published a new piece which dives into the numerous allegations of sexual assault,  misconduct and more that have been leveled against Anti-Flag vocalist/guitarist Justin Sane (aka Justin Geever.)

The aforementioned politically-inclined punk band broke up this summer after an allegation thought to be about Justin Sane began making the rounds. The group and Sane would go on to issue separate statements regarding their decision to disband in late July, with Sane denying the allegations made against him.

He stated in part, “…There have been claims of sexual assault made against me and I can tell you that these stories are categorically false. I have never engaged in a sexual relationship that was not consensual, nor have I ever been approached by a woman after a sexual encounter and been told I had in any way acted without her consent or violated her in any way. ”

Per this Rolling Stone piece, twelve more women have come forward with allegations against Justin Sane, including claims of sexual assault, statutory rape, grooming and more. The alleged incidents date all the way back to the 90s, with women claiming to be as young as 12-years-old at the time. Sane was alleged to be 17-years-old during the time of the latter accusation.

Several of the allegations shared include claims of non-consensual BDSM. The police were involved with at least one of the claims, but didn’t move forward as the woman in question did not explicitly turn down Sane‘s behavior. You can read through those various accusations, as well as see a new statement from Sane‘s former bandmates, over at rollingstone.com.

As mentioned by several of the alleged victims, Sane was thought to initially be an ally and champion to woman’s causes, as evidenced with the band’s 2005 song “Feminism Is For Everybody (With A Beating Heart And A Functioning Brain)“.
