Alexa Curtain, the daughter of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtain, has filed a lawsuit against the Orange County Sherriff’s Department accusing an O.C. Sheriff’s deputy of rape.
According to the lawsuit, an O.C. deputy pulled the then 21-year-old over in April of 2014 after leaving her boyfriend’s house in Dana Pointe, CA.
“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 Deputy then told Alexa to remain in her car while he attended to an “another more pressing matter.” Twenty minutes later the deputy returned in his vehicle and dressed in plain clothes and sat in the passenger seat of Alexa’s car.
“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–k the s–t out of you.” Alexa was “afraid and feared for her safety, and she complied with all of the Deputy’s commands . . . Then the Deputy groped Plaintiff’s vagina and digitally penetrated her while commenting on her anatomy.”
After the alleged rape the Deputy pulled up his pants and asked Alexa for her phone number so he could text her. Alexa reveals she gave him a fake number.
The lawsuit states “Plaintiff was violated, traumatized, emotionally drained, in shock and fearing for her safety. Specifically, Plaintiff feared that given the Deputy’s position, he would find her and harm her again. Due to the Defendant’s atrocious actions, Plaintiff has suffered physical and emotional injuries. Plaintiff’s injuries continue.”
In a statement to the Daily Mail, Alexa’s lawyer Jeremy Jass said,“We talked about her name coming out because she is somewhat of a public figure and she is comfortable with that. Sex abuse cases are notorious for being unreported or under-reported because they are about sensitive issues that people don’t want to live through, but she has done nothing to be ashamed of, and I don’t think she should have to shy away from that. Maybe because she is a public figure, it will bring other victims forward who may not have otherwise come forward. We have reason to believe the perpetrator in Alexis’s case may have had multiple victims, so we hope we can stop this happening again.”
Jass went on to say, “Alexa didn’t make a police report because she was concerned that she would suffer some retaliation from the department. She was afraid that the perpetrator would find out about the complaint, and he could find out where she lived or what kind of car she drives and the license plate. She figured she wouldn’t be too hard to track down.”
