Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynn Curtin’s daughter Alexa Curtin - who recently filed a lawsuit against the OC Sheriff’s Department accusing an officer of rape - has been charged after being found with a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia last month.
Curtin was charged with two misdemeanors: possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance paraphernalia. The 23-year-old could face up to a year in county jail.
There was also no evidence of current registration for her vehicle by the District Attorney’s Office on June 7, the day she was charged.
Curtin was pulled over by police on May 14, and officers allegedly found her with drugs and paraphernalia. She was cited and released the same day.
Police records do not state the type of drug that law enforcement officers allegedly found on Curtin, who is an aspiring porn star who goes by the alias 'Jayden Taylors'.
Court records show that Curtin has a co-defendant - who was also cited and released - named John Micah Durkin.
An arraignment in the case has been set for June 15 in Newport Beach, California.
Curtin’s arrest comes months after the reality star filed a federal lawsuit against the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
She claimed a deputy with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department sexually assaulted her in April, 2014 when she was 21 years old.
Curtin - who has waived her right to anonymity to encourage any other alleged victims of the police officer to come forward - claimed she was pulled over shortly after leaving her boyfriend’s house in Dana Point, California.
The lawsuit states one of the deputies approached Curtin’s car and began questioning her.
It states: ‘The Deputy searched Plaintiff’s vehicle. Plaintiff had some of her clothing in her vehicle. While searching...the Deputy 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.’
The suit says the Deputy then had to leave to tend to ‘another more pressing matter’, but told Curtin she wasn’t free to leave and ordered her to remain in her vehicle.
Twenty minutes later the same deputy who had conducted the earlier traffic stop returned but in his personal vehicle and out of uniform, the lawsuit states.
The plain clothed officer got into the car and sat in the passenger seat next to Curtin.
The lawsuit states: ‘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.”
‘Based on information and belief, the Deputy stated to Plaintiff, “Show me your p***y”.
The suit says Curtin was ‘afraid and feared for her own safety, and she complied with all of the Deputy’s commands.’
It added: ‘Then the Deputy groped Plaintiff’s vagina and digitally penetrated her while commenting on her anatomy.’
The suit says that the officer then pulled his pants down and ordered Curtin to straddle him while he was sat in the passenger seat.
Curtin complied because, she ‘was still in fear for her safety and knew that many in law enforcement carry guns’.
It added: ‘While in this position, the Deputy had nonconsensual sexual intercourse with Plaintiff.’
The deputy then pulled his pants up and asked Curtin for her cell phone number so he could text her again.
Still afraid Curtin gave him a wrong number.
The suit stated: ‘Plaintiff was violated, traumatized, emotionally drained, in shock, and fearing for her own safety. Specifically, Plaintiff feared that given the Deputy’s position, he would find her and harm her again.’
It added: ‘Due to the Defendants atrocious actions, Plaintiff has suffered physical and emotional injuries. Plaintiff’s injuries continue.’
Curtin is suing both the Sheriff's Deputy and Orange County Sheriff’s Department asking for damages for the mental anguish, emotional distress and financial losses and is demanding general, special and exemplary damages along with attorney fees..
The department has yet to respond to the allegations in federal court.
Curtin is the daughter of former Real Housewife of Orange County star Lynne Curtin and appeared regularly in the Bravo reality series herself alongside big sister Raquel.
In May 2014 Lynne was shocked to discover her daughter did porn underthe alias 'Jayden Taylors' to pay for plastic surgery.
'When I found out that Alexa was involved in porn I became physically ill,' the 59-year-old reality star said in the National Enquirer.
The jewelry designer was under the impression her daughter, now 23, was just modeling lingerie.
Curtin has had a couple of run-ins with the law in the past, one a domestic violence incident with her boyfriend in 2013 and she was arrested on a misdemeanor charge for public drinking last year.
