One Year Ago Today (July 9, 2021)…A Texas real estate developer who stars in the Lifetime unscripted series, Marrying Millions,” was charged in Orange County with sexually assaulting two 16-year-old girls at his Laguna Beach vacation home.
William Lewaled Hutchinson, 63, of Highland Park, Texas, was charged with a felony count of rape of an unconscious person and five misdemeanor counts of sexual battery, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Hutchinson is also facing a charge of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in his Dallas-area home, according to the District Attorney’s Office. It was unclear if that alleged victim was one of the two he was accused of assaulting in Laguna Beach.
Hutchinson turned himself in to Texas authorities on Wednesday and released on $30,000 bond, according to prosecutors here.
The two teens went on vacation with him at his Laguna Beach residence in April, where prosecutors say he raped one of the teens while she was asleep.
When asked to return with him in May, the alleged rape victim declined, but he took and molested the other girl, prosecutors said.
According to the criminal complaint, Hutchinson is accused of attacking one of the girls between April 1 and April 5 and again between April 11 and April 30, and the other between May 30 and June 2.
“My client, Mr. Hutchinson, is not guilty, and we look forward to having our day in court where he will be fully vindicated,” Hutchinson’s attorney, Jacqueline Goodman, said.
