Bill Hutchinson Accused of Sexually Assaulting College Student

According to Fox News, a victim has filed a lawsuit against "Marrying Millions" star Bill Hutchinson alleging sexual assault charges in Dallas, Texas.

The victim alleges that she reached out to the real estate mogul, owner of Dunhill Partners, Inc., for a mentoring opportunity. Allegedly Hutchinson requested her resume before scheduling a meeting at one of his Dallas Virgin Hotels on June 6, 2020. The victim met with the suspect where he provided her with numerous alcoholic beverages that led to the victim becoming intoxicated. Hutchinson is said to have then taken the victim to a nearby apartment, where he made many sexual advances towards her.

The victim alleges that despite her repeated attempts to tell the suspect no, he tried to force himself on her touching her breasts and butt without consent. At one point, he even forced her hand on his penis before she was able to kick him off and use her phone to record the incident. The victim further alleges that Hutchinson's driver even stated that this was not the first time for such acts and inappropriate behavior with young women.

The lawsuit also sites that Virgin and his firm Dunhill Partners, Inc., knew of his behavior yet did nothing to stop or even prevent it from reoccurring on their property. Hutchinson is facing charges of assault and battery, kidnapping, and false imprisonment. Dunhill and Virgin are being accused of negligence along with negligent failure to protect, train or educate.

Legal Right for Sexual Assualt Victims

Attorney commentator Marc Lenahan is an experienced sexual assault attorney licensed in the state of Texas. Marc has provided us some of his knowledge regarding the rights of sexual assault victims and their families.

"Hotel owners and managers have a legal responsibility to provide a safe environment for their patrons and guests. This includes protection from foreseeable risks, which includes sexual assault. Sometimes it may not be possible to anticipate all crimes; however, failure to initiate certain security measures that may lead to criminal acts such as sexual assault may open the door for a civil lawsuit based on negligent security."

"Inadequate security or reporting can be deemed negligent in a court of law. Foreseeable risks could even involve the knowledge that a member of the staff or management has been accused of committing crimes in the past, such as sexual assault, yet nothing was done to prevent the person from doing it again. This negligence may be deemed liable in a civil lawsuit. In the event of such a violent crime, victims or their families should seek the aid of an experienced sexual assault attorney."
