Curtin's plea comes on the heels of a motion filed by the County of Orange asking the judge to ban any mention of the word "rape" during the trial on account that it could likely induce the jury to make a decision based off an "improper, emotional basis that would prejudice and confuse the jurors."

The defendant argues Alexa was never detained, never under arrest and was not under investigation at the time of the alleged assault. Docs claim Caropino simply "entered plaintiff’s vehicle and sat in the passenger’s seat,” arguing there is no evidence of force on his part.
