EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexa Curtin – Accuses Alleged Rapist/O.C. Sheriff of Blowing off Legal Battle, Demands Judge Find Him in Default
The Dirty can exclusively reveal former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexa Curtin is accusing her alleged rapist and O.C. Sheriff of blowing off her lawsuit despite being served and now she has headed back to court to begin the process of being awarded a default judgement against him.
Alexa sued claiming back in 2014 while pulled over for a traffic violation, an Orange County Sheriff officer named Deputy Caropino ordered her to straddle him 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.
She sued demanding damages for the alleged sexual assault. The County of Orange blasted the lawsuit saying the reality star consented to any alleged acts demanding it be throw out.
Last month, Alexa filed docs explaining she has learned of 2 other women who accused the same officer – Deputy Nicholas Caropino – of sexual assault while on duty. She demanded the Sheriff Department hand over his personnel file but they have refused. She pleaded for the judge to force them to turn over the records.
Alexa filed docs this week accusing Deputy Caropino of blowing off the legal battle and never bothering to respond. She served him with the suit back in December and the deadline for him to respond was last month. Alexa is pleading for the judge to find him in default, which is the first step in being awarded a judgement against the Deputy.
The reality star also notes the County of Orange – also a defendant – is refusing to provide Caropino with legal representation in the case.
