    Shawn Rhoden charged with rape!

    I just read this! I can't believe it!

    2:08 PM PT -- TMZ Sports has obtained official docs from the case ... which shows bail has already been set for $750,000.
    There's also more information about the allegations ...
    The woman -- who is married -- claims she went straight to police after the alleged assault and underwent a sexual assault examination.
    The nurse who conducted the exam said the accuser had a laceration on her vagina, something prosecutors in sexual assault cases usually look for to support a rape claim.
    Bodybuilding superstar Shawn Rhoden -- the 2018 Mr. Olympia winner -- has been charged with 1st degree rape in Utah after allegedly sexually assaulting a female bodybuilder in 2018.
    Cops in Salt Lake City tell TMZ Sports ... 44-year-old Rhoden -- who goes by Flexatron -- has not been arrested, but a warrant has been issued.
    According to court docs, first obtained by KSL.com, Rhoden's accuser claims she visited Rhoden in his hotel room in Oct. 2018. The unidentified woman told cops she viewed Rhoden as a mentor.
    But, during the visit, the woman claims Rhoden forced himself on her -- and despite repeated pleas to stop, he refused. She claims he eventually stopped and let her leave the room.
    Officials say the woman went to police and they collected evidence from her body that tested positive for Rhoden's DNA.
    Rhoden has been hit with multiple criminal charges including felony rape, object rape and forcible sexual assault.
    Rhoden is a huge star in the bodybuilding world -- he has 1.6 million followers on IG and is the reigning Mr. Olympia ... the most prestigious title in the sport. He famously dethroned Phil Heath, the legend who had won the Mr. Olympia competition 7 years in a row.
    Story developing ...

    The Olympia is going to be messed up this year.

    Let's not be up quick to judge Flexatron. Who knows? He could be totally innocent.

    Re: Shawn Rhoden charged with rape!

    Why did they ban him from the Olympia and all future Olympias before they even know if he's guilty?

    Re: Shawn Rhoden charged with rape!

    Why did it take so long to charge him for a crime he is accused of doing in October of 2018?

    Re: Shawn Rhoden charged with rape!

    This is from eob:
    BREAKING NEWS: Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden charged with rape.
    UPDATED 13 July, 2019 – According to TMZ.com a bail has been set at $750,000.
    The woman — who is married — claims she went straight to police after the alleged assault and underwent a sexual assault examination. The nurse who conducted the exam said the accuser had a laceration on her vagina, something prosecutors in sexual assault cases usually look for to support a rape claim.
    Shocking news in the bodybuilding industry as 2018 Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden has reportedly been charged with rape.
    According to several news sources, Shawn Rhoden, 44, was charged Thursday with rape and object rape, both first degree felonies, and forcible sexual abuse, a second degree felony.
    The woman, a female competitive bodybuilder who described Rhoden as a mentor, went to visit Rhoden at his hotel on Oct. 12, 2018, while he was visiting Utah from California, according to the charging documents.

    The woman told police that Rhoden forced himself on her and sexually assaulted her, despite her trying to push him away and telling him repeatedly to stop, the charges state.
    She said Rhoden stopped and let her leave when she told him she needed to go downstairs or else an acquaintance waiting in the lobby would know “something (was) up,” according to the charges.
    A DNA sample found on the woman’s body was matched to Rhoden, police said.
    A warrant for his arrest was issued Thursday.
    Rumors regarding this story have been circulating for a few months but no concrete facts have been released.
    These events will surely put a black cloud over the 2019 Olympia Weekend that is to take place in less than 10-weeks.
    Contrary to what the American press is reporting, the Olympia Weekend is not organized by the IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness) but it is organized by AMI (American Media Incorporated) and by the NPC/Pro League headed by Jim Manion.

    News by Christopher J. Pitre

    Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden Charged with Felony Rape

    The world’s top bodybuilder will not have a chance to defend his bodybuilding title at the prestigious Mr. Olympia contest in Las Vegas.
    Shawn “Flexatron” Rhoden, a professional bodybuilder and 2018 Mr. Olympia champion, has been charged with one count of felony rape, one count of felony object rape, and forcible sexual assault. The Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office issued a $750,000 arrest warrant for Rhoden on July 11, 2019.
    The charges arise from an incident that occurred last year according to Lieutenant Dean Carriger with the Sandy City Police Department (SCPD). A 44-year old female bodybuilder reported that Rhoden sexually assaulted her in his hotel room at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Sandy City, Utah on October 12, 2018.
    “Following an extensive investigation, Sandy Police detectives submitted the case to the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office on one allegation of rape against Shawn Rhoden,” Carriger said. “The DA’s office filed formal charges… and a warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest.”

    Rhoden was a bodybuilding mentor and colleague of the alleged victim.

    The alleged victim was a competitive bodybuilder who described Rhoden as her “body-building mentor and colleague”. She visited Rhoden’s hotel room following a photo shoot. The woman was accompanied by the photographer who remained in the hotel lobby while she visited Rhoden.
    The woman alleged that Rhoden started kissing her and pressing his body against her body without her consent. She repeatedly asked him to stop and told him that she was not interested in his sexual advances. She told police that she feared Rhoden due to his overwhelming size and strength.
    After she left Rhoden hotel room, she immediately told the photographer and called her husband. She contacted the police and was examined by a trained sexual assault nurse investigator.
    The sexual assault nurse examiner observed a laceration on the victim’s genitals and collected DNA evidence that matched Rhoden’s.
    David Pecker, the American Media LLC Chairman and owner of the Joe Weider Mr. Olympia, revoked Rhoden’s eligibility to compete in the 2019 and future Mr. Olympia competitions after prosecutors announced the criminal charges. The Mr. Olympia contest is the most prestigious professional bodybuilding title in the IFBB Pro League.
    American Media also suspended all coverage and promotion of Rhoden in its bodybuilding magazines, Muscle & Fitness and FLEX Magazine.
    It is not known if Rhoden is currently in custody.

    Re: Shawn Rhoden charged with rape!

    From the official website of the law firm collins, gann, mccloskey and barry:
    Mr. Olympia shawn rhoden entered a not guilty plea

    “shawn rhoden had an initial appearance today in salt lake city, utah, where he appeared voluntarily with counsel. Prior to his appearance in court, negotiations occurred between his defense team and prosecutors in which the prosecutor’s bail request was reduced from $750k to $250k. The arrest warrant was vacated. Shawn entered a plea of not guilty. He is represented by rick collins, esq., of new york and l. Monte sleight, esq., of salt lake city. Shawn deeply appreciates his many fans and supporters, especially those who are standing by him during this difficult time. He vigorously denies the charges. He has no statement for the media at this time. He looks forward to being cleared of these false accusations in court.”

    Shawn could be going to prison for a long time if he doesn't beat the charges.

    Count 3 - Forcible Sexual Abuse, 766-5-404 UCAm Secibd Degree Felony, as follows: That on or about October 12, 2018, in Salt Lake County, State of Utah, the defendant did, where the victim was 14 years of age or older, touch the anus, buttocks, pubic area, or any part of the genetials of another, or touch the breasts of a female, or otherwise took indecent liberties with another, with intent to cause substantial emotional or bodily pain to any person or with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person, without the consent of the other, regardless of the sex or any participant.

    This information is based on evidence obtained from the following witnesses. Melissa Crandell, Trey Brimhall, L.K.H., L. Janssens and S. Madsen. Declaration of Probable Cause - Your declarant bases this information upon the following:

    The statement of competitive female bodybuilder, L.K.H., that on or about October 12, 2018, she, along with a photographer with whom she had just completed a photo session, went to visit her bodybuilding mentor and colleague, Shawn Rhoden, in room 249 of the Marriott Courtyard Hotel located at 10701 South Holiday Park Driver, Salt Lake County. Rhoden was visiting Utah from California. The photographer stayed in the lobby while L.K.H. went to the room. After L.K.H. went into the room, Rhoden started kissing her. He pushed his groin against L.K.H. and she could feel that his penis was erect.

    She asked him to stop repeatedly and tried to push him away. The kissing progressed to Rhoden lifting L.K.H.'s shirt, exposing her breasts. Rhoden began sucking on L.K.H's breasts and nipples; she tried to pull her shirt down and continued telling him to stop.

    Rhoden bent L.K.H. over the bed, face down and pulled her pants down. L.K.H. continued yelling Rhoden to stop and said she didn't want to do "this". Rhoden flipped L.K.H. over on her back and pulled his penis out of his pants. L.K.H. was scared because Rhoden is much bigger and stronger than she is and he was easily overpowering her. Rhoden placed the tip of his penis in L.K.H.'s vagina and put his fingers in her vagina. L.K.H. told Rhoden that she needed to go downstairs or else her photographer would know "something was up". Rhoden let her leave and L.K.H. contacted her husband and the police.

    The statement of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, Susan Madsen, that she conducted a sexual assault examination on L.K.H. and observed a laceration on L.K.H.'s genitals that was tender and stinging.

    The statement of L. Janssens from the Utah State Crime Lab that a DNA sample obtained from L.K.H.'s breast was a match to a known DNA sample belonging to Rhoden.

    Request for Issuance of a Warrant

    The State hereby requests that the Court issue a Warrant of Arrest in this matter for the following reasons(s): due to the nature of the offense and because the defendant resides in California, a warrant is necessary to protect the victim, the community and to ensure the defendant's appearance in court.

    Executed on 07-10-19 by Melissa Crandell, Declarant
    Authorized for presentment and filing, Sim Gill, District Attorney
