Captain Lee Rosbach is standing by his chief stew during her domestic violence case.
The Below Deck star, 66, told RadarOnline.com exclusively that he "keeps in touch with Kate Chastain" — but was unbothered by her ex-girlfriend Rocio Hernandez's domestic violence case against her.
"I didn't put that much thought into it," he told RadarOnline.com. "I have a lot of faith in Kate and I think the truth will come out."
"I didn't really get to know her," he added of Hernandez, despite her brief appearance on the show.
"So I didn't form an opinion one-way or the other," he explained. "It takes more than just saying 'hi' and a brief encounter for me to form an opinion on someone."
"I'd like to take a little bit more time," he noted.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Chastain, 33, is set to face Hernandez in early November. The reality star was charged with battery by strangulation, domestic violence by the Melbourne Beach police department over the summer.
