'Marrying Millions' star Bill Hutchinson charged with raping unconscious teen at Laguna Beach vacation home
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. - Reality TV star and prominent Dallas real estate developer Bill Hutchinson has been charged with raping an unconscious teenager while vacationing in Laguna Beach.
Hutchinson, 63, is accused of sexually assaulting two 16-year-old girls who were vacationing with him, according to the Orange County DA’s office.
Hutchinson is accused of bringing the two 16-year-old girls on vacation to his Laguna Beach home on two different occasions in April. According to the DA’s office, he is accused of raping one of the girls while she was unconscious and committing four acts of sexual battery against her. When the victim decided not to return to Laguna Beach, Hutchinson then returned to his vacation home with another 16-year-old girl at the end of May and committing sexual battery against her.
The Orange County DA filed their charges a day after authorities in Texas filed a felony sexual assault charge against him involving a 16-year-old girl in his Dallas-area home.
