Before she made headlines by being kicked off ABC’s The Bachelor for having an “inappropriate” relationship with a show producer, Rozlyn Papa was no stranger to tough situations – she was arrested three times and sentenced to jail, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
A Richmond, Virginia resident, 29-year old Rozlyn was arrested twice in 1999 for petty theft. She was arrested on September 5, 1999 and was found guilty by a judge and sentenced to 2 months and 2 days in jail. She appealed the misdemeanor conviction and the case was dismissed so Rozlyn didn’t spend any time in jail. Rozlyn was arrested again on December 11, 1999 for petty theft and received a suspended sentence of 12 months and 12 days, which was also dismissed on appeal, according to official records uncovered by RadarOnline.com.
Clearly, 1999 wasn’t a good year for Rozlyn. She was also arrested on June 11, 1999 for underage alcohol possession and found guilty.
Rozlyn has shown a knack for getting her cases kicked. She was ticketed in 2003 for having expired registration on her car, but those charges were dropped. She was also ticketed for driving without a license in 2007, but the charges were dismissed as well.
The fired Bachelor beauty is lashing out at ABC, claiming that the network sensationalized her “relationship” with a producer on the show and also claiming, as first reported by RadarOnline.com, that they reneged on a deal allowing her to bring her 7-year-old son Aidan on the show and talk about him on air.
“ABC told me I could bring my son to the show to visit and that I could talk about him each day on the show,” Rozlyn told RadarOnline.com. “Butthen they didn’t let me.”
And about the scandal that got her booted Rozlyn told RadarOnline.com: “No, I did not have a sexual relationship with a producer on the show.”
On a radio show on Monday, Bachelor Jake Pavelka spoke about Rozlyn, and said that he was “starting to develop feelings for her.”
