RHONY star Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy refused a plea deal that could have gotten him out of the stalking court case against him in court on Monday.
Hoppy was in court facing charges of aggravated harassment in the second degree and stalking in the first and the DA offered him a deal for to plead guilty to the harassment charge as a violation, with attendance at an anger management program and an order of protection thrown into the bundle. But Hoppy turned it down, insisting he will be vindicated, RadarOnline is reporting.
In court, Jason’s attorney, Alex Spiro vehemently defended his client’s innocence. When contacted by Radar, Spiro would only say that the plea deal was rejected, and he would not comment further at this time.
There is currently a protection order in place while the case is in motion.
Frankel called cops in January over claims Hoppy threatened her at five-year-old daughter Bryn‘s school. It was also revealed that Hoppy had previously been sent a cease and desist by Frankel over allegations that Hoppy had sent Frankel numerous emails and FaceTime calls, according to the NYPD.
The next hearing is set for April 26.
