Seattle Man Forced His Pregnant Teen Girlfriend To Sign “Abuse Contract”
What kind of nonsense is this? Police in Seattle say Graydon Smith, 31, had an “abuse contract” with his pregnant 19-year-old girlfriend, stipulating he could beat her anywhere on her body “except on her pregnant belly.” Sick.
The police were called to Smith’s parents’ home on April 28 after the girlfriend reported he’d threatened to kill her. She then told cops Smith had assaulted her before and she believed he would do so in the future because he had made her sign a contract granting him permission to physically abuse her, so long as he stayed away from her pregnant stomach. When reached by a reporter from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Smith — who had a 2003 domestic violence conviction — confirmed the “abuse contract” existed. For some reason, Smith was not arrested after that first incident. But surprise, surprise, police were called to the house again, this time by Smith’s stepfather who saw Smith chocking his girlfriend for about 10 seconds. Police found her bleeding from her face and with a contusion on the back of her head, which she said came from Smith. He was arrested at the scene and charged with second-degree assault, two counts of fourth-degree assault, and two counts of felony harassment. Each count carries an additional allegation of domestic abuse, which could mean more jail time. Mr. Wonderful is currently in jail on a $100,000 bail. Guess what, creep? Your little “abuse contract” isn’t going to do crap for you in court.
