A bizarre case reached its conclusion when a bondage master accused of kidnapping and choking his slave pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and walked away with no jail time.

Richard B. Wise, 43, whose first trial ended in a mistrial after a juror turned up drunk, pleaded guilty Thursday to misdemeanor domestic abuse and received a suspended sentence after prosecutors dismissed felony kidnapping and domestic abuse charges when they couldn't find his accuser for a second trial.

Prosecutors alleged Wise beat his girlfriend, Nanette “Gina” Larsen, Feb. 17, 2010, because she wanted to leave him after catching him having sex with another woman in the parking lot of an Oklahoma City nightclub.

Wise, an Oklahoma City sex fetish enthusiast who calls himself “Lord Wraith,” denied he attacked Larsen, who signed a contract to be his slave. He practices BDSM, short for bondage and discipline, dominance and submission and sadomasochism.

Prosecutors went forward with their case even though Larsen claimed she made up her accusations. She told friends, police and an emergency room doctor in February 2010 that he handcuffed, choked and beat her against her will.
