Alexa Curtin’s time with the Orange County criminal justice system continues.
The onetime porn star and 26-year-old daughter of former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Lynne Curtin faces two misdemeanor drug charges following her Jan. 5 arrest by Irvine police.
Cops say Alexa was discovered with Xanax and drug paraphernalia, booked into Orange County Jail and, after posting a bond, was released on Jan. 6.
The Orange County District Attorney’s office has charged her with possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance drug paraphernalia. Curtin, who was listed as unemployed on her booking sheet, is scheduled to be arraigned on March 4.
Despite her young years, Curtin has had a busy relationship with Orange County cops and courts.
She sued the county and the sheriff’s department in federal court on grounds that a since-fired deputy, Nicholas Lee Caropino, raped her after a bizarre April 2014 traffic stop near her Dana Point home. Curtin, who was 21 at the time of the attack, was eventually awarded $2.25 million. (Rather than point you to one story, click here for a post I did that contains links to R. Scott Moxley’s blanket coverage of what turned into a huge scandal for then-Sheriff Sandra Hutchens.)
A month after the rape, yours truly reported that Curtin had been performing in adult films as the “barely legal” Jayden Taylors, whose credits include Having Sex with the In-Laws. She later quit the biz.
Curtin was arrested in 2015 for stealing from Macy’s and assaulting a woman, and she was later sentenced to 30 days in jail for an unspecified probation violation.
After being found in possession of drugs and paraphernalia in June 2016, she was slapped with two charges.
On Halloween night 2017, she got into a fight with her boyfriend in a Santa Ana parking lot, took his keys, tagged his vehicle to the tune of $400 in damage and then took off with his keys, police reported at the time.
She was charged with paraphernalia possession in February 2018, after police claim she was found with items used to smoke heroin.
Curtin was popped last April for allegedly driving under the influence.
An August call about a suspicious vehicle brought out police who found her and another female inside and discovered Curtin had outstanding warrants. Her booking sheet from that arrest also listed her as being unemployed.
She spent four days in jail and was taken to court to face counts of possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia, vandalism, petty theft and driving under the influence of a drug. Curtin pleaded not guilty to all charges and posted a $5,000 bond.
In October, a judge issued a warrant for her arrest after she skipped a court hearing, and her $5,000 bond was forfeited.
