71 year old man who chased an exotic dancer across 3 Illinois counties pleas guilty

An Illinois man charged with chasing an exotic dancer - his one-time photography subject - and her boyfriend through three northern Wisconsin counties will be extending his visit to the North Woods.

The bizarre case that began at an Eagle River hotel and played out at high speeds across Highway 70 in January ended with the stripper getting treatment in an Upper Michigan hospital and Benedict Emil Sedivy in jail.

Sedivy, 71, a retired Cicero, Ill., percussionist whose lawyer said once played with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, pleaded no contest this week to a single count of second-degree reckless endangerment.

Florence County Circuit Judge Leon Stenz sentenced Sedivy to six months in jail as a condition of two years' probation. A second count of reckless endangerment and one count of aggravated battery were dropped.

Sedivy also was ordered to pay nearly $8,500 restitution to the county and the dancer, perform 150 hours of community service and undergo anger management, the Florence Mining News reported.

Some details of the incident did emerge at a preliminary hearing in the case:

Nicole Christenson, 32, testified she had met Sedivy while working as an exotic dancer at a club in Eagle River. She said she let him drive her around, stayed in his hotel room and posed for photography sessions.

On Jan. 6, when her sometime boyfriend Michael Kirch, 46, came to watch her dance, he invited her back to Kingsford, Mich. But when she stopped to get her things at the hotel room, Kirch testified, Sedivy told him he had videotaped an intoxicated Christenson having sex with another man the night before.

Kirch became upset and asked for the tapes, he testified, prompting Sedivy to pull a long knife from inside a cane and threaten him. Kirch left the room but later ducked in and took photography equipment when he and Christenson left for Michigan. When Sedivy realized the equipment was missing, he chased the couple more than 40 miles to Florence County, where Kirch went into a ditch while trying to lose Sedivy on a winding road about 12 miles west of Florence.

They fled to the woods before Christenson decided to go back out on the road and try to talk to Sedivy, which is when the complaint charges he drove at her and she jumped onto the hood to avoid more serious injury.

The old man should just come with me to the Chinese rub & tug joints if he wants to bust a nut. It'll cost him a few bucks and he may have to take the occasional slant eye to the casino to to spend his money like I do, but its a must do if you can't get a woman the way normal guys do. Just be sure to have a good story for when organized crime shows up to do a bust. And when the story doesn't hold water, try to pull rank on the po's. and then double check to make sure your not listed on the report as being on scene.

Benedict Emil Sedivy voted for Obama, then asked him if he wanted to see a really cool trick that he could do with his cane.

That stripper could learn some new manners at the SpankDaddy Academy. I would definitely lock the door after she came in, though.
