Ex-MMA fighter War Machine found guilty on 29 or 34 charges, faces life in prison

Former UFC fighter War Machine, born as Jon Koppenhaver, was found guilty of 29 different charges for his violent assault on ex-girlfriend Christy Mack.

Following eight hours of deliberation on Friday, the 12-person jury was unable to reach a verdict on the 34 felony charges War Machine was facing. They continued deliberating until Monday afternoon where they reached an agreement on everything except the charges of attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

According to KSNV News in Las Vegas, War Machine has been found guilty of 29 charges of “sexual assault and battery constituting domestic violence.” However, he has been acquitted of at least four charges including burglary with use of a deadly weapon, sexually motivated coercion, battery with intent to commit sexual assault, and sexual assault with use of a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm.

Christine Mackinday, a.k.a Christy Mack, recently shared two tweets commenting on the jury’s decision, calling it a “great victory for myself, as well as victims of DV [domestic violence] everywhere.”

War Machine will be sentenced on June 5. He faces life in prison without parole.
