In April, Orange County prosecutors allege that Hutchinson raped one of the teenagers and committed four acts of sexual battery against her. The allleged victim declined to go on a second trip to Laguna Beach in May, prosecutors said, when Hutchinson is accused of committing sexual battery against a second girl.
The Dallas Morning News reporte that a 17-year-old girl told Texas authorities that Hutchinson provided her and other minors with alcohol, then touched them inappropriately.
Hutchinson issued a statement to TMZ on the Texas matter. “Anyone who knows me in this city knows that I am not capable of assault, sexual or otherwise.” He has not yet commented on the Orange County charges.
The Orange County District Attorney’s Office said Hutchinson turned himself into police in Texas Wednesday and was released on a $30,000 bond. An arrest warrant has since been issued out of Orange County for Hutchinson, prosecutors said.
If convicted of the Orange County charges, Hutchinson faces up to 8 years in state prison and two and a half years in county jail.
