Chicago woman takes the stand in sexual slavery case - New York News

Jurors see love letters, contract at `sex-slave` trial

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A Gold Coast woman who claims she was forced into sexual slavery with her new husband took the witness stand for a second day Wednesday.

Her testimony focused on a supposed contract creating the master-slave arrangement.

Kevin Anderson, a wealthy businessman, from west central Wisconsin, has sat silently in court for two days now, as the one-time love of his life, Kimberly O'Brien, has portrayed him as a sexual deviant who repeatedly abused her once they were wed.

On the witness stand Wednesday, O'Brien insisted she had nothing do with numerous articles downloaded during their relationship--essays with titles like "spanking," "levels of dominance, "and "welcome to living as a slave,"

On the 19 pages of basic slave rules, she claimed Anderson had put asterisks next to certain items, like rule 18: "all my choices shall be based upon whether or not they will please my master."

Her ex-husband is expected to counter that it was O'Brien who brought the kinky elements to the relationship.

"I think the evidence will indicate that she was intimately involved in the documents, their production and their discussion with her husband," says defense attorney Charles Cole.

Still to come, probably Thursday, will be O'Brien's description of the fourth night of their honeymoon, when she claims that after she agreed to be blindfolded so he could tease her body with a feather. He proceeded to bind her arms and legs and beat her with a whip as he told her about what he called "the new rules of their relationship."

When they first met, O'Brien says Kevin Anderson, bragged of having a $4 million rare coin collection, but in her two days on the stand, the woman has insisted that she was interested in Anderson because he promised they would have a family, and she was in love with him.
