Before former MMA athlete War Machine was convicted on March 20 for committing heinous crimes against his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack he tried to defend himself to the public via Twitter with a message in which he claimed he ‘didn’t do’ what he was being accused of.
Just a few days before War Machine, 35, (real name Jonathan Paul Koppenhave) was convicted for sexually assaulting and kidnapping his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack, 26, (real name Christine Mackinday), the former mixed martial arts athlete took to Twitter to try and convince the public that he wasn’t as guilty as they thought.
“Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all,” War Machine began the tweet that he sent out on March 15 — before being found guilty on March 20 after an 8-day trial. “Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me the foremost, Jesus might demonstrate his perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in him for eternal life – 1 Timothy 1:15-16.”
“I’ve offered to sign any number of plea agreements, I’ve begged for the opportunity to take a lie detector test, I’ve done everything in my power to resolve this issue, but the D.A. wants a media circus… So here we go,” War Machine continued. “It’s no mystery; I found the woman I loved in bed with another man and I made some poor choices, Choices that I feel horrible for, regret and know that I must be punished for… But I DIDN’T do all the crap they’re accusing me of and I do not deserve that crazy amount of time being thrown at me.”
“That said, I know not what the outcome of this trial will be, it’s in gods hands,” the now convicted felon wrote. “Whatever that outcome may be, however, this has been a huge blessing in my life. God has used this for good; I have found him, submitted to him, and have been transformed in miraculous ways. For the first time in my life that huge hole in my heart and soul has been filled and I am at peace… I wouldn’t trade it for anything. All that’s left is to learn where god wants me to serve him.”
“Will I be his witness behind these walls and used to shepherd the lost sheep within the prison system? Or does God plan for me once again to be free, and to show the entire world the infinite power Jesus has to transform even the most lost of men? May his will be done. I want to thank my good friend and attorney @Brandon_sua for his hard work and for sticking by my side when most all have fled to my beautiful sisters and to all the wonderful pen pals who I now consider my friends thanks for everything. Clark County Detention Center Jonathan Koppenhaver 2519422,” War Machine concluded.
