Alexa Curtin, Daughter of RHOC's Lynne Curtin, Charged for Alleged Drug Possession 2 Months After Accusing Sheriff's Deputy of Rape
The 23-year-old was charged June 7
Alexa Curtin, the daughter of Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Lynne Curtin, is facing two drug charges after a traffic stop last month, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Curtin, 23, was allegedly found with drugs when police pulled her over on May 14, a spokesperson for the Orange County District Attorney’s office confirms to PEOPLE. On June 7, the DA charged her with two misdemeanors – possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance paraphernalia – as well as an infraction for not having evidence of registration for her vehicle. She faces one year in jail.
The charges come two months after Curtin filed a lawsuit accusing an Orange County sheriff’s deputy of raping her during a different traffic stop in 2014.
“We take allegations of this nature very seriously,” a spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told OC Weekly in April of the lawsuit. “We are currently working with her attorney to set up an interview.”
Her attorney, Jeremy D. Jass, told the publication of the rape lawsuit that his client, “was violated, traumatized, emotionally drained” and “in shock.”
Curtin has worked as a porn star under the name Jayden Taylors. Her mother, Lynne, appeared on RHOC from 2006–2010.
