Prosecutors have accused Hutchinson of taking two 16-year-old girls to his vacation home in Laguna Beach on two separate occasions last year.
Hutchinson allegedly raped one of the teens and committed four acts of sexual battery while she was unconscious after being plied with alcohol and marijuana.

When that teen allegedly refused to return to Hutchinson’s vacation home at a later date, prosecutors said he picked up another 16-year-old.
After bringing the second victim to his home, Hutchinson allegedly committed sexual battery against her.
Hutchinson, who has been free on $100,000 bail, has denied any wrongdoing.
Hutchinson has also been charged in Texas with sexual assault tied to allegations of groping a 17-year-old girl at his Dallas-area home in May. He is the teen’s legal guardian, court documents said.
He was arrested on July 6, 2021, for allegedly molesting the 17-year-old girl, who was passed out on the couch at his Texas home in May.

The TV star’s representatives said the 17-year-old is the same accuser as one of the Laguna Beach accusers, and called the story ‘fantastical’ as she would have been assaulted twice while unconscious in the span of consecutive months.
Hutchinson starred in the Lifetime reality show Marrying Millions, which followed his relationship with a 21-year-old Dallas restaurant hostess Brianna ‘Bri’ Ramirez. The couple got engaged on Seson 2 of the show.
It is unclear whether the couple are still together.

Bri is younger than the Detroit-born businessman’s three daughters – Holly, 32; Rachel, 30; and Tess, 28 – from his first marriage to Kathleen.
He also has two younger children – Annebelle, 16; and King, 11 – from his second marriage to a woman named Kandis.
