Former AWA Wrestler Buck “Rock-N-Roll” Zumhofe Charged With Sex Crimes
Known for his flashy personality and for carrying a boom-box blaring classic rock into the ring with him, former AWA star Buck “Rock-N-Roll” Zumhofe made his first court appearance in Kandiyohi County Court Tuesday morning. He’s facing 12 counts of criminal sexual conduct for repeatedly having sex with a female relative between 1999 and 2011. The charges include six felony counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and six felony counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
According to the West Central Tribune;
Zumhofe started having sex with the victim when she was 15 years old, in June 1999. She had first met him in 1998. The abuse is alleged to have continued until 2011.
The woman, who is now 29, reported the abuse after seeking therapy and medical care in 2012.
The abuse began when she moved into Zumhofe’s home in June 1999 in New London. The abuse began with his touching her breasts and then oral sex. Zumhofe also made her dance in front of him in bra and panties and watch pornography with him, the complaint states.
After about two weeks, the abuse progressed to intercourse two to three times a day. In later years, intercourse took place two to three times a week until the woman left in June 2011.
This isn’t the first time Zumhofe has been in trouble with the law, he was convicted of criminal sexual conduct in Carver County and served a 36-month prison sentence in Stillwater in 1989. Ten years later, he was convicted of violating a domestic abuse order for protection in Kandiyohi County.
Buck, who’s real name is Eugene Otto Zumhofe, had bail set at $500,000 cash or bond for unconditional release and $100,000 cash or bond for conditional release. He is being held at the Kandiyohi County Jail, until his next court date on June 10.
