DA Says TV Star Couple Accused of Drugging and Raping Up to 1,000 Women Did No Such Thing—Ex-DA Made it All Up

Breaking911: SANTA ANA, Calif. – Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer announced today that all criminal charges will be dropped against a 39-year-old Newport Beach orthopedic surgeon and reality television star Grant Robicheaux and his 33-year-old girlfriend Cerissa Riley who were accused of drugging and sexually assaulting seven women.

Robicheaux was charged with nine felonies, including rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by use of anesthesia or a controlled substance, assault with intent to commit a sexual offense, four counts of possession of a controlled substance for sale, and two counts of possession of an assault weapon. He was also charged with sentencing enhancements of personal use of a firearm during a health and safety code violation. more

  1. Savages.What if a child was
    maimed for life ??? Dam!
    Any slight real or perceived
    is grounds for an all out assault.

  2. That this could happen is terrifying. But it’s basically what happened to our president, and no one seems all that surprised anymore.

  3. At minimum the ex-DA deserves disbarment, jail for perjury in a court of law, will probably put all past convictions under review and sued out of existence for liable. What an absolute piece of garbage this guy is. The only difference with him and many others across the country is he got caught. Good on the new DA for having integrity. Wonder how much pushback he got from county officials as this opens a huge can of worms for them?

  4. I’m confused.

    Setting aside the appalling (ditto The-Mamomma and Different Tim)…

    This couple nevertheless engaged in three-way perverted sex with… dozens?… hundreds?… of strangers over a few-year period???? (Or was that part made up too?)

  5. If he had won the election he would have gotten away with it and two innocent people would not only have had their lives destroyed but probably spend the rest of them in prison.

    I wonder how often this happens.

    If you ever end up on a jury, keep this case in mind as you deliberate.

  6. “He was also charged with sentencing enhancements of personal use of a firearm during a health and safety code violation.”
    Double What!?!?

  7. “innocent victims”. Are there any “guilty victims”? Did the former DA just want to see pornos? Did the current DA get a hefty deposit? Where’s the money? Who is the “R” and who is the “D”?

  8. I’ll bet there are a lot of people who nevertheless believe that the Dr and his wife did, in fact, rape women.

    A long, expensive investigation with lots of phony evidence leading nowhere. This rings a bell….

    “If you ever end up on a jury, keep this case in mind as you deliberate.”

    …I’ve been on juries. When I was younger, I did not try to get out of it because I was genuinely interested in how the process worked.

    …I am sad to report that my fellow jurors would discuss the hairstyle on the defendant, how convincing the prosecutor sounded, see everything through the lens of their own personal prejudices, and bitch about courthouse parking and being late for dinner.

    What they will NOT discuss is the FACTS, the merits of the case, or anything relevant to, you know, the LAW.

    …it’s too much over most people’s heads for them to even think about it, and they are intimidated by their formal surroundings and the large presense of armed police, they don’t want to be there in the FIRST place, and the process for the jury to ask questions about the facts or the law on the rare occasions they WANT to is MUCH too complicated and time-consuming, so most juries just go off of whoever wears their suit the best and speaks in the most commanding voice, and just go with THAT.

    And the prosecutors KNOW that.

    ..spend time ON a jury, and I can guarantee you’ll never want to be in FRONT of one…

    …so, with a group of easily- intimidated people too young, too bored, or too stupid to get out of jury duty at their disposal and ZERO consequences for prosecutorial misconduct because who’s going to prosecute the prosecutor, why NOT just lie, withhold evidence, and use the vast resources of taxpayer funding to quickly bankrupt your target into submission to serve your personal agenda?

    …ask General Flynn how THAT works…

    P.S. by the last week of my County jury summons, I was done. I would do or say anything to get excused, so much so that one judge rebuked me from the bench during the voir dire for being a litte too obvious.

    But I got out, and not arrested, so it was all good.

    I just felt my duty to be locked in a room for hours with morons, jacklegs, Black racists, and lawyerphiles had been served a week before the County did, and couldn’t take another round of hearing about someone’s trip to the hair stylist followed by a guilty verdict any more “because the man in the nice suit says he is”.

    I was done.

    …since then, nothing that comes out of a Court surprises me.

    Best advice?

    …never go before a jury, if you can at all avoid it, unless you are VERY cute or VERY rich, ’cause you’re gonna LOSE…
