The Dirty can exclusively reveal Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexa Curtin is being blasted by the O.C. Sheriff she accused of raping her during a traffic stop …. with the deputy denying he sexually assaulted the reality star and says any injuries she suffered are due to her recklessness.
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.
She sued demanding damages for the alleged rape. The County of Orange blasted the lawsuit saying the reality star consented to any alleged acts demanding it be throw out. Alexa filed docs recently accusing Deputy Caropino of blowing off the legal battle and never bothering to respond. She is seeking a default judgement in the amount of $10 million dollars
Then on March 22nd, Deputy Caropino headed to court blasting the allegations he raped the reality star.
He states in regards to the alleged sexual misconduct in the complaint, he vehemently denies any and all allegations of wrongdoing. He is also asking judge to vacate the default judgement entered due to him failing to respond by the deadline.
The response adds, “And in light of the serious nature of the accusation and the potential enormous money judgment involved, Caropino is entitled to his day in court. And such is what our law prefers; that is, to resolve as many cases on their substance rather than via some type of procedural defects.”
He says any alleged negligence of his part was in concurrence with Alexa’s own careless, reckless and negligence behavior. Caropino says if she is awarded damages it should be reduced according to the percentage of fault of Alexa.
Further, he says Alexa had full knowledge of the facts, dangers and consequences before entering into the situation … and voluntarily accepted the risk. He is alleging the reality star consented to any alleged actions that took place on the day in question. He is demanding the entire lawsuit be thrown out saying Alexa’s injuries were “self-induced”.
