    Saving Abel Could Use Some Saving Too
    The co-founder of the rock group Saving Abel and another employee of the band are facing charges after authorities say they forced a 17-year-old girl to perform a sex act following a concert in Oakland.

    It looks like Saving Abel could use some saving themselves.

    The co-founder of the rock group Saving Abel and another employee of the band are facing charges after authorities say they forced a 17-year-old girl to perform a sex act following a concert in Oakland.

    Thirty-three-year-old Jason Null and 21-year-old Brandon Danger were arraigned Friday on charges of forced oral copulation and forced oral copulation on a minor.

    Null, a founder and lead guitarist with the group, pleaded not guilty. His attorney says the charges are "baseless" and his client will be exonerated. Danger has yet to enter a plea.

    Police say the girl was lured onto the band's tour bus Tuesday night thinking she would be in a rock video. Once inside, they say she was forced to perform the sex act.

    Null came up with the band's name based on the Biblical story of Cain and Abel.

    “I googled the story of Cain and Abel and found a line about ‘there was no Saving Abel,’ which just jumped out at me.”

    For Null's sake, he is not Abel.
