A second man has been charged with the video-recorded sexual assault of an unconscious woman.
Jonathan Mass, 19, of Kenosha, was charged with five counts of second-degree sexual assault of an intoxicated person on Tuesday. His co-defendant Gabriel Hernandez, 26, of Kenosha, was charged with seven counts of second-degree sexual assault of an unconscious woman.
According to the criminal complaint, the woman contacted Kenosha Police on Feb. 4, 2018 — Super Bowl Sunday — saying she believed she had been assaulted. When police arrived at the home on the 6900 block of 14th Avenue, the woman, who was described as being “in and out of consciousness,” told officers she had friends over and that they drank vodka, smoked marijuana and took Xanax, and that she lost consciousness.
When she regained consciousness, she told police, she was naked, and the two men were gone. Police identified the men as Mass and Hernandez.
She told police she had known Mass since she was in elementary school. She said she had met Hernandez online and arranged to meet him. When they met, Mass was with Hernandez, and the two men told her they were cousins. Mass later told police Hernandez is a longtime friend who he calls his cousin.
According to the criminal complaint, the men took video of the assault. Police obtained the video in October 2018. According to the complaint, the video shows the woman being sexually assaulted, the complaint describing the woman in the video as unresponsive and “limp and seemingly only react(ing) to pain.”
The complaint states that, in the video, the men are heard laughing and a male voice is heard saying, “Say you love it,” to the unconscious woman.
Hernandez is being held on $50,000 bond.
Mass is currently serving an 18-month prison sentence for retail theft, that sentence handed down in May 2018 after his probation was revoked. Mass’ father, Chester Mass, is serving a life sentence for the 2013 shooting death of Jonathan Mass’ mother, Heather Adamski.
Mass is scheduled to make his initial appearance Jan. 24.
