Decapitated Vocalist & Bassist Formally Charged With Rape & Kidnapping & Plan To Pursue Bail

Decapitated singer Rafal Piotrowski and bassist Hubert Wiecek had their first court appearance in Spokane County on Friday for allegedly participating in a gang rape of a woman on their tour bus in Spokane on Aug. 31. With the aid of a Polish translator, Judge John Cooney communicated the charges of first-degree kidnapping and second-degree rape to Piotrowski and first-degree kidnapping and third-degree rape to Wiecek.

Waclaw Kieltyka and Michal Lysejko, the band’s bassist and drummer, had their first court appearance in Spokane on Oct. 13. Kieltyka was charged with first-degree kidnapping and second-degree rape and Lysejko was charged with first-degree kidnapping and third-degree rape.

All four band members had their bonds set at $100,000. They also aren’t allowed to talk to each other while incarcerated and were forced to surrender their passports to their attorneys.

The band has been in Spokane County Jail after being extradited from California. They were arrested Sept. 9 in Santa Ana in connection with the case and charged on Oct. 12.

Attorney Jeffry Finer, who represents Piotrowski, said the men will be pursuing bail, but are waiting on documents from Poland to “impress the court” which could take over a week.

“Among this group, there are a number of advanced degrees and zero criminal history,” Finer said.

None of the men has a criminal history in the United States, according to prosecutors, but it’s unknown if they have criminal records in Europe.

According to court documents, two women told police they were invited onto the tour bus following the show. The alleged victim of the rape said that, after talking for some time, she went into the bus bathroom where she was “grabbed and spun around to where she was facing the sink and mirror in the bathroom,” and subsequently raped by each of the members of the band.

The other woman told police that she was able to escape after kicking one of the band members in the groin.

Decapitated announced last month that it was canceling all previously announced tour dates. The band also publicly denied all accusations.

In an announcement last week, the Decapitated members stated that the charges against them were pressed “as a procedural formality” adding that “without doing so, the police would be forced to release band. This is not a conviction or any indication of guilt or innocence.”

The musicians added: “Some facts are indisputable at this point – that the original officer who took the complaint from the accuser stated, ‘I do not have probable cause that a rape occurred,’ and it’s taken a full thirty days to file charges, which is right up against the point at which the defendants would legally have had to be released.”

“The band firmly refutes the allegations and are confident that once the facts and evidence have been seen and heard, they will be released and able to return home.”

Polish Supreme Court Rules Against Behemoth’s Nergal Over Bible Tearing

After being cleared of blasphemy charges in Poland last year stemming from an on-stage Bible ripping incident, apparently Behemoth front man Nergal is now facing legal issues again due to a recent decision by the Polish supreme court.

The Guardian is reporting the supreme court has now ruled against Nergal, who may potentially spend up to two years in jail for tearing up a Bible. Excerpts from the report follow:

Poland’s supreme court has issued a landmark judgment against a heavy metal musician who tore up a Bible at a gig in 2007. Although the judges conceded that Adam Darski, AKA Nergal, did not intend to offend his audience, they ruled that he could still have “offended religious feelings,” violating Polish law. If found guilty, the singer could face up to two years in prison.

After being cleared by judges in 2010 and 2011, the singer/guitarist is again on trial. Officials in Gdansk asked the supreme court how Darski could be “offending religious feelings” if most of Behemoth’s fans expected theatrical sacrilege?

“One should respect the court’s verdict,” Darski told journalists. But the Catholic church is also “immature,” he said, “trying to gag people … [and] freedom of speech.” Speaking to Reuters, Darski’s lawyer said they would continue to oppose the charges: “We are still arguing that we were dealing with art, which allows more critical and radical statements,” Jacek Potulski explained.

Nergal has now released a new autobiography titled “Sacrum Profanum,” which details his battle with leukemia. The latest trailer for the release is available right here.
