Anti-Flag frontman Justin “Sane” Geever faces rape allegations from multiple women. Under mounting legal pressure, Geever has liquidated his assets, transferred money out of the country, and is planning to flee the United States according to new court filings. Geever’s legal troubles began when Kristina Sarhadi described her encounter with the punk rocker on the enough podcast. Although she did not mention him by name, there were enough details for other survivors to recognize the sexual predator and come forward with accounts of their own experiences. After hearing from other women, Kristina founded The Punk Rock Therapist where she offers free counselling to sexual assault survivors. When more survivors came forward, Kristina felt a responsibility to take legal action against her predator, and she filed a lawsuit. As Geever attempts to escape justice, Kristina’s legal team has filed an amended complaint.

“My team files this Amended Complaint as part of our ongoing efforts to prevent Justin Geever from harming any more women or children, and to educate our communities that bystanders and enablers are dangerous too. Survivors like me, my clients through The Punk Rock Therapist, our sister-survivors and allies in the punk scene and beyond will not stop seeking justice, no matter how far predators may run, and how many enablers help them hide.” (Kristina Sarhadi)

“Anti-Flag is the ultimate sell-out. Their sinister use of feminism to further their greed and allow the sexual assault of women is now obvious, especially from their reaction to this lawsuit. Even after all she’s been through, Kristina was willing to forgive and allow space for healing. In response, Anti-Flag continued their deceit and manipulation. Kristina’s courage and conviction to act against a powerful establishment has revealed the ugly truth about Anti-Flag and about this industry.” (attorney Karen Barth Menzies)
