A 35-year-old Lincoln man is accused of forcing a woman into a so-called slave contract, police said, formalizing abuse that included whipping her, burning her with lighters and making her drink his urine several times a day.

Nicholas Allen Talbot was charged Tuesday with second-degree domestic assault, and Lancaster County Judge James Foster set his bond at 10 percent of $25,000, court records show.

Talbot was still behind bars Wednesday, according to jail records.

Police say he forced a 32-year-old woman to sign what he said was a legal document titled “Slave Contract” on Jan. 15. The document said the woman “only had rights the master gave her,” Lincoln Police Officer Angela Morehouse said in an affidavit to jail Talbot.

On Monday, the woman told her pastor and another woman that Talbot hurt her, showing them several wounds, and they called police, Morehouse said.

“They were horrific,” said the Rev. Kathy Gouin at Lincoln Foursquare Church.

Gouin said she’s known the woman for about a year, since she has  attended services and volunteered to take food to the poor.

“She’s very sweet and innocent,” Gouin said Wednesday. “She’s a vulnerable young woman.

“She’s very innocent and believes people.”

Police found four to six burn marks on the woman’s spine that were black and scabbed over, Morehouse said in the affidavit. The woman told police  Talbot had extinguished cigarettes on her back.

Investigators also found burns covering 3 to 5 inches on her right buttocks, which she said she got when Talbot burned her with a lighter, Morehouse said.

Police spotted a large burn on her right breast, and she told them Talbot heated the tip of a screwdriver on Jan. 15 and held it to her skin, Morehouse said.

She also said Talbot wrote “PROPERTY OF NICK” on her left arm in black marker.

Gouin said she and her husband, the head minister at Foursquare, had no idea what their parishioner was going through, and got help for her as soon as they found out.

“We don’t just let people be tortured,” she said.

The woman also told investigators Talbot forced her to drink his urine once or twice a day, Morehouse said in the affidavit.

The woman told investigators Talbot abused her for nearly 10 years, and she was afraid to talk to police, Morehouse said. She thought officers were part of Talbot’s “company” or “gang,” and that he had threatened to have her parents and grandmother killed in front of her if she didn’t obey him.

According to Nebraska State Patrol records, Talbot is a registered sex offender. He served three years in prison for sexually assaulting a child twice in 1998 and for forgery, according to Nebraska Department of Correctional Services records.
