Lynne Curtin’s daughters have not had a very smooth path in life since Lynne left the show in 2010. Alexa has had numerous run-ins with the law that are still ongoing. This past May she violated her parole and was sentenced to a few days in jail. I believe that was a shoplifting charge. Her grandmother has accused her of elder abuse. I am not sure if that case has even been heard yet. She is on probation until 2019.
Also, Alexa has done a few pornos and tried to keep that information out of her three-year civil lawsuits against an Orange County Sheriff Deputy who she accused of rape. Yesterday, a jury determined that the police department was partially at fault for the rape because they kept him on the force even though there were prior cases where women had claimed he had sexually assaulted them.
Alexa Curtin’s lawsuit alleged that in April 2014, sheriff’s deputies came to the home of Curtin’s then-boyfriend after the couple got into an argument. According to the lawsuit, Caropino drove Curtin to her car, which was parked nearby. Once there, the deputy made inappropriate comments about her underwear, which he found in her car, and ordered her to stay put. She alleged he then returned to the scene, in his vehicle and out of uniform, got into the passenger seat of her car, and raped her. Curtin was 22 at the time.
The jury found that the county was liable because of a sheriff’s department policy that allowed former deputy Nicholas Lee Caropino to stay on patrol duty, and remain in contact with the public, even as he was under criminal investigation for the first sexual assault allegation.
Alexa had asked for $40 million. While I am happy that the county was held accountable for their horrific policy regarding sexual assault complaints, I am worried for Alexa. Winning the lottery ruins the lives of a lot of people who get a lot of money and don’t know how to handle it. It doesn’t seem like Alexa has much of track record for making wise decisions. Her parents were evicted from their home on the show. There was a noticeable lack of parenting of Alexa and her sister.
I hate to say it, but I do not think this will end well for her. I hope for the best for her. But I am not optimistic.
