Jason Hoppy Rejects Plea Deal in Bethenny Frankel Stalking Case

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.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
