In Zumhofe takes stand in molestation case, denies charges, West Central Tribune staff writer Gretchen Schlosser reports:
. . .Eugene “Buck” Zumhofe took the stand in his criminal sexual conduct trial Tuesday afternoon and denied any sexual involvement with the young woman, now age 29. . . .
He does admit sleeping with her:
Zumhofe said he shared a bed with the young woman only when they were on the road to a wrestling show, in order to save money on motel rooms, or he shared a bed with her when other wrestlers came to stay at his residence.
“It was either I slept with her, let another guy sleep with her or sleep on the floor,” he testified.
The criminal complaint against Zumhofe alleges that he started having sex with the young woman when she was 15 years old, in June 1999. The abuse is alleged to have continued until 2011. . . .
Last week, Schlosser reported that Witnesses testify that Zumhofe relationship wasn’t appropriate. Read about testimony that conflicts with Zumhofe's testimony at the West Central Tribune. While the Tribune doesn't disclose the family relationship, other news sources have identified the victim as his daughter.
