Former RHOC star Lynne Curtin’s daughter Alexa Curtin filed an amended complaint against the Orange County Sheriff’s Department after she learned of her alleged attacker’s identity, and the attacker just happens to be a cop!
Curtin, 23, claimed that Nicholas Lee Caropino raped her, despite Orange County’s refusal to help her peg him.
Alexa filed her lawsuit earlier this year, although the alleged incident happened in April 2014. The cops were called when Curtin and her then-boyfriend got into a verbal fight. They separated the couple, and an officer drove her back to her car that was parked a block away.
“Upon arriving at Plaintiff’s vehicle, Deputy Caropino searched Plaintiff’s purse and vehicle,” the documents, obtained by RadarOnline, claimed. “While searching Plaintiff’s vehicle, the Deputy Caropino found some of 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.”
He then left the scene but told her “She was not free to leave” and “if she did leave, she would be in ‘a lot of trouble.’” She stayed put, and tried to fall asleep in her car while she waited for the officer to return.
Caropino returned about 20 minutes later in his personal car in plain clothes. He allegedly told her, “since you are still here, I am going to f**k the sh*t out of you” and to “show me your p**y.”
“Deputy Caropino then pulled his pants down and shoved Plaintiff’s head down towards his genitals and forced her to orally copulate him despite her pleas to stop because he was hurting her,” the suit also claimed. The two then engaged in non-consensual sex, and “Deputy Caropino partially ejaculated inside of Plaintiff’s vagina, and partially on the passenger seat of Plaintiff’s vehicle.”
“Deputy Caropino then pulled up his pants, and asked Plaintiff for her cellular phone number so he could text her and to do this again,” Lynne Curtin’s daughter claimed. “Still afraid, Plaintiff gave Deputy Caropino an incorrect phone number. Then the Deputy Caropino returned to his personal vehicle and left.”
She is suing for mental anguish, emotional distress and financial losses.
