Three unidentified women have sued Sebastian Chacon for alleged sexual assault related to events that allegedly occurred between 2017 and 2022 in Los Angeles and New York.
As part of the complaint, the 30-year-old actor—who portrayed Warren Rojas on the Prime Video series Daisy Jones and the Six—faces some grave accusations. The Adult Survivors Act of New York was the legal basis for the lawsuit. Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2, and Jane Doe 3 are the names of the plaintiffs included in the lawsuit.
Seeking “to recover for (Chacon’s) tortious conduct involving similar patterns of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse that he inflicted upon them individually between 2017 and 2022,” the women filed the complaint under the Adult Survivors Act.
- When they initially met in 2017, the first Jane Doe claims to have been 16 and Sebastian to have been 24. “Chacon encouraged Jane Doe 1 to consume multiple alcoholic beverages and then sexually assaulted her in his home while she was still underage and legally incapable of consent,” the accuser stated, months after they first met.
- Then, Jane Doe 2 and 3 claim that the supposed assaults occurred in 2018 and 2022, during the intimate ties they shared with Chacon. According to Deadline, both of them allege that they were “strangled during nonconsensual sex until they lost consciousness, and continued to have sex with them.”
The court filings stated that the plaintiffs now wanted to hold Chacon responsible for the unimaginable anguish and suffering they had to bear because of his violent and illegal behaviour against them.
Chacon is being sued by the three plaintiffs for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of mental distress. They assert that before filing, they had meetings with Chacon in New York.
In reaction to the accusations, Sebastian’s lawyer Jeff Chabrowe issued a statement in which he stated that the actor “vehemently denies” the charges.
“The accusers, who are attempting to extract millions of dollars from Chacon, have verbally abused, harassed, and threatened Chacon and his close friends and family.” This case is only the consequence of Mr. Chacon’s reluctance to submit to extortion; he refused to compromise his moral principles” he continued.
Chabrowe added that the accusations made by the women “undermine the credibility of genuine victims who deserve justice and support” and “damage” Chacon’s image.
In a statement, the attorney for the plaintiff goes on to claim that the lawsuit and the accusations highlight the strength and courage of the alleged victims. “The complaint’s asserted facts speak for themselves.” “I just think it’s a huge testament to these women’s strength and courage that they found each other,” she continued.
The case was filed prior to the Friday, November 24 deadline set forth in New York’s Adult Survivors Act (ASA).
