In the world of reality television, once you’re off the show, you better mind your P’s and Q’s or else, you could get into some hot, hot water. One reality show star, William Hutchinson, which you may remember from the Lifetime series, Marrying Millions, is now in some hot water of his own.
Marrying Millions Star Accused of Assault
Hutchinson, a 63-year old real estate developer is now accused of sexual assault charges in Orange County. According to the victim, who is 16-years old, he raped her while she was completely unconscious. The assault apparently took place at his home in the Dallas area. He is now facing one felony count of rape and five misdemeanor counts of sexual battery.
With this announcement hitting the news on Friday, Hutchinson has found himself in quite the sticky situation.
He is a very prominent real estate developer in Dallas, is the founder of Dunhill Partners, manages retail space around the country, and when he was on Marrying Millions, the show gave us his story and we were introduced to his girlfriend, who was 40 years younger than him! It seems he is no stranger to younger women in his life.
The involvement in Orange County is because it is alleged that he brought two 16 -year-old girls to his Laguna Beach home. The trip happened back in April and one of the girls was raped and assaulted. The girl in question refused to go back to Laguna Beach with him in May and that is when he assaulted the second teenager. This isn’t the only case against him now though.
In the Dallas area, there have been other teenage girls that have made claims against him and have similar stories about how he raped them when they were unconscious. One teenager girl told reporters that when she fell asleep, he took advantage of her and when she woke up, he was sexually assaulting her.
Hutchinson made a statement this weekend saying, “Anyone who knows me in this city knows that I am not capable of assault, sexual or otherwise.”
He then opened up about younger women, “I’ve always thought that a really good working relationship is where there is an age gap. It doesn’t have to be 40 years. It could be five years. It could be 10 years. But when there is an age gap, there is an automatic respect for the elder- her to me. And there’s an automatic caring- me for her- for the younger age.”
Hutchinson was released on a $30,000 bond and is awaiting his hearing.
