EXCLUSIVE: RHOC star Alexa Curtin – Demands Jury Be Informed of Missing Audio on O.C. Sheriff Police Video in Rape Legal Battle
Keeping everyone up to speed – The Dirty can exclusively reveal Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexa Curtin is battling it out with the O.C. Sheriff she accuses of raping her and the reality star is demanding the judge allow the jury to hear about missing audio from the police car camera taken during the alleged assault.
Last year, Alexa sued claiming while pulled over for a traffic violation back in 2014, an Orange County Sheriff officer named Deputy Caropino ordered him to straddle her and proceeded to rape her in the car. She claimed to follow orders out of fear for her safety. Once he finished the officer allegedly asked for her cell number.
The County of Orange blasted the $10 million lawsuit saying the reality star consented to any alleged acts demanding it be throw out. Caropino recently fired back claiming Alexa caused her own injuries and denied he raped her. The parties are both preparing for the upcoming trial.
Recently, the defendants filed docs pleading for the judge to exclude any testimony regarding missing time and audio on the video captured by the deputy’s car.
They claim any testimony would be speculative as to why the audio or parts may be missing from the entire video. They say they handed over videos to Alexa and some of it is audible and some of it is not.
Alexa fired back saying she has every right to argue reasonable inferences to the jury about the missing audio …. and says the defendants are absurd in attempting to band it from the trial.
The judge has yet to rule.
