Static X Guitarist Charged With Committing A Lewd Act With A Child (read: date rape with an underage girl)

I feel:: angry

Ken Serrano and Chris Jordan of New Jersey's Asbury Park Press have issued the following report:

He told the 14-year-old Sayreville girl he was "T-Rex" and he liked to impersonate the guitarist for the heavy metal band they both liked, STATIC-X, authorities said.

But the 39-year-old man accused of meeting the girl through the Internet, driving from Pennsylvania and sexually assaulting her in an Old Bridge shopping center in January was no impersonator, police said.

Tod Rex Salvador, who goes by the stage name Tripp Eisen, a guitarist for STATIC-X, was apprehended Thursday in Orange County, Calif. by two detectives from New Jersey, authorities said.

Salvador, of Burbank, Calif., was charged with kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault, luring to entice a minor through the Internet and endangering the welfare of a child. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 30 years in prison on the kidnapping charge alone.

When Det. Scott Crocco of the Old Bridge Police Department and Det. Sgt. David Jones of the state police encountered Salvador, he had just gotten out of jail.

Police in California arrested Salvador on Feb. 10 after finding him sleeping in a parked car with a girl with whom he had just had sexual intercourse, said Jon Fleischman of the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Salvador was charged with committing a lewd act with a child and was released after posting $100,000 bail, Fleischman said.

Following his arrest Thursday technically on a fugitive warrant from New Jersey, Salvador was turned over to the Central Men's Jail in Santa Ana, Calif. He is being held there without bail while he awaits extradition to New Jersey, authorities said.

"We've confiscated several computers to examine them to see if there are other victims," Lt. Kevin Rehmann of the New Jersey State Police said. "We suspect there may be in several other states."

STATIC-X is one of the most popular groups to emerge from what's known as the nu-metal scene of the late 1990s that spawned bands like KORN.

The band released its debut album, "Wisconsin Death Trip", in 1998. The album went gold, selling half a million copies. A new album is scheduled for release later this year.

A call placed to the band's publicist at Warner Bros. was not returned. A management company, The Firm, referred calls to Salvador's Los Angeles-based attorney, Mark Werksmen, who did not return calls.

Police said the Sayreville girl met Salvador on a web site where he used the screen name "groverygodadat" under the heading "never married male looking for female."

"He tells the girl he's a fan of the band and portrays himself to look like the guitarist in (STATIC-X)," Rehmann said.

He drove out to Old Bridge on Jan. 7 from Pen Argyl, Pa., in a truck belonging to a Pennsylvania relative, said Lt. Robert Weiss of the Old Bridge Police Department. Salvador, who once lived in New Jersey, was back in Pennsylvania from the West Coast on an extended holiday visit.

Police said he had consensual sex with the Sayreville girl in the truck in the parking lot of the shopping center. The girl's mother found out about the assault and went to Old Bridge detective Thomas Montagna, Weiss said.


I'm Scared

I feel:: scared

I guess I should begin at the beginning. Ryk took me out to see the movie Constantine last night. I liked it, but he fell asleep. After the movie was over, we dropped off his friend, Nelson, at his apartment. Ryk had been asking me to stay the night with him because he said that he missed me being there when he woke up and that he hated having an empty bed. So, I told him that I would. We got to his place and he made me pizza, which was nice. We started watching what I think was the Jay Leno show and they had this little old lady on there answering people's questions about sex. This one lady asked something like,"As my husband gets older, the less he wants foreplay. Why is that?" I said to Ryk, jokingly,"Don't ever be like that." He said,"Well, as long as you don't want to stop having sex." I was quiet for awhile and he said,"What's on your mind?" I said,"I have been meaning to talk to you about sex." So, basically what I told him was that I'm scared to have sex. I'm not scared of him. I don't know why I'm scared. I mean, he knows about my past, about all the abuse and such. It's not like I don't enjoy myself and it's not like I don't want to be with him. I told him that I hadn't been spending the night at his place for awhile because I was afraid that when I came over, he would want to have sex and if I didn't, he would pout and then I would have anxiety and feel guilty. His sex drive is way higher than mine and he wants to have sex every time we see each other. Granted, he is a lot younger than me. I don't know what to do about it and I don't have money for therapy, which would probably be an excellent idea for me.

Moving on, we fell asleep about 3:30am and I woke up about 6:22. I had the worst case of hearburn I have ever had. I guess it was from the pizza. I was also very nauseous and very dizzy. I happened to go the bathroom and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I had to do a double take. My pupils were so dilated and my eyes were so glassy. So, I went back to bed and tried to go back to sleep. I kept having dizzy spells even when I was laying down. I felt like my body was tilting and that I was falling. I finally fell asleep and woke up again at about 8am. I tried to sit up in bed and was so dizzy that I fell back down. I lay there for about 10 minutes and decided to try and get up. I sat up, and had another dizzy spell which dissipated enough after about 5 minutes for me to get up and walk around. I was still dizzy enough to have to hold on to the wall to walk. I went to the bathroom and looked at my pupils again. Still dilated. I was still nauseous too. So, I lay back down and fell asleep, thank God. I woke up again at about 10:30. Same as before with dizziness, nausea and dilated pupils. I decided to go downstairs and try to eat something. I ate some yogurt. That was a mistake. I felt worse after I ate. I sat on the sofa and watched the tube for about an hour and then I realized that there was no one at his apartment should I pass out and hit my head or something. So, I decided to drive home. I realize that was not the best decision considering my condition, but I wanted to be home with my dad in case something happened. I got home ok and fell into my bed. I have been up and down out of my bed all day. It is now 1:18am the next morning and I'm still dizzy, nauseous and my pupils are still dilated. I told my dad earlier that if I was still this way tomorrow that I would have to go to the doctor on Monday, but he said that I couldn't because he doesn't have any money for it. So, I'm fucked basically and I'm scared. I don't know what is happening to me.


Valentine's Day

I feel:: sick
What song is on a loop in my head right now:: Los Lonely Boys~How Far Is Heaven?

I want to wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day. I am usually not psyched about this holiday, but since I have someone who loves me I feel a bit different. He gave me a stuffed white teddy bear holding a red and a white rose. Also, a basket that he made himself filled with chocolates, cinnamon hearts, two little teddy bears that are magnetized at the lips to kiss each other and a card. It was all wrapped up in clear cellophane tied with a bow that had red hearts on it. I've never gotten a Valentine's Day gift from someone I was dating before. I felt really special. Unfortunately, I don't have a job, so therefore, no money to buy him anything. I gave him an awesome back rub though. I may make something for him and give it to him later on today. I still can't believe I got a Valentine's Day present. More so, I can't believe he loves me.



I feel:: cranky
What song is on a loop in my head right now:: something by Alicia Keys

I'm sick. I still haven't heard anything about any of the jobs I've applied for. I think my dad is getting impatient with me. I don't know what to do though except keep applying for jobs. I wish I wasn't sick.

P.S. I love pie. :)


Another One of My Crazy Dreams

I feel:: confused

I had a really weird dream last night:
I had a dream last night that my dad and I and another woman I couldn't identify were cleaning out the back of my car. In this dream, my car was a hatchback. There were all kinds of clothes and blankets in the back. As I was lifting a blanket, I saw a small arm sticking out from underneath it. I lifted up another blanket and saw that there was a little boy lying underneath and he was covered in blood, like he had just been born. Well, we were all shocked that there would be a baby boy in the back of my car. My dad said that someone must have put him in there while I had the back of my car open while I was moving out of my previous place. We thought that he had been in there for a couple of days. So, I wrapped him in a blanket and took him to the hospital. I was so freaked out, because I could tell that he was really sick. When I got to the hospital, I kept trying to find the ER and I kept getting lost. I asked everyone I passed where the ER was, but either no one would tell me, or they took me the wrong way. I finally got to the ER and went up to the triage to tell the nurse there what had happened. Finally, someone listened to me. They rushed the baby into this room with an incubator and I couldn't see him. I gave them my phone number and told them to call me and let me know how he was doing. That's all I can remember.
