Alexa Curtin, the daughter of former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin, has filed a lawsuit that accuses an Orange County police officer of raping her.
Curtin alleges that the attack happened after the officer stopped her car. The lawsuit, obtained by Page Six, details the events Curtin says happened.
“The Deputy searched Plaintiff’s vehicle. Plaintiff had some of her clothing in her vehicle. While searching…the Deputy found some of the Plaintiff’s underwear and began inappropriately questioning Plaintiff about her underwear, asking if the underwear belonged to her, how many pairs she had, why she needed the underwear, etc.,” the lawsuit reads. “The Deputy then informed Curtin that he had to attend to ‘another more pressing matter,’ but ordered Curtin to remain in her vehicle. He returned 20 minutes later, in his personal vehicle and out of uniform, and sat in the passenger seat.”
It continues, “The Deputy began issuing orders to Plaintiff. Based on information and belief the Deputy said, ‘Since you are still here, I am going to f*** the s*** out of you.'”
According to the lawsuit, Curtin, who says she was too afraid to tell the officer no, “complied” with his demands. Her lawyer told The Daily Mail that she waited to report the rape because she was afraid that filing a report would make it easy for her alleged rapist to find her and retaliate.
She also says that she’s gone public with her story and “waived her right to anonymity in the case, to encourage any additional potential victims of the officer to come forward.”
According to Jezebel, the Orange County Police Department has not commented on the case.
