Former Static-X star Tripp Eisen has been released from custody after serving time for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in January 2005. The guitarist, real name Tod Rex Salvador, served his time at the Mid-State Correctional Facility in New Jersey.

He was arrested in Orange County, California after courting a New Jersey girl on the Internet, and then meeting her, and reportedly assaulting her in a shopping center. The unnamed teenager girl told her mother about the encounter and the worriedmum called the police.

In a separate incident, Eisen was arrested in February, 2005 on one felony count of crimes against children after authorities from Orange County found him sleeping in a parked car with an underage female. It transpired he’d just had sex with her.

He was fired from Static-X after news of the sex scandal hit the headlines.
