TV surgeon and his girlfriend ‘may have drugged and raped hundreds’

Official: More possible victims of California doctor found

More than a dozen women and one man have come forward with allegations against a Newport Beach orthopedic surgeon and his girlfriend who have been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting two victims, the Orange County District Attorney announced Friday.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said more than 12 of those leads were credible - and that investigators are looking at crimes that may have occurred years ago. "You do't know what is behind what appears to be a ideal smile".

Robicheaux and Riley met the two victims they are charged with assaulting at a bar and restaurant in Newport Beach, but investigators believe Robicheaux also contacted women through dating apps like Tinder and Bumble.

Some of the women who have come forward indicated to prosecutors that they felt the need to support the the two women Robicheaux is accused of raping, Rackauckas said.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 38-year-old Grant William Robicheaux and 31-year-old Cerissa Laura Riley are expected to face charges including rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by controlled substance, assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense, and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

Robicheaux faces up to 40 years' jail if convicted on all counts, while former supply teacher Ms Riley could be jailed for 30 years.

Riley faces the special enhancement of being knowingly vicariously armed with a firearm, according to the District Attorney's Office.

Since news of the September 12 arrests broke, investigators have fielded more than 50 phone calls to a tip line that led to more than 12 "credible leads" to potential additional victims, Rackauckas said.

Attorneys for Robicheaux and Riley have denied the allegations. Cohen and two other defense lawyers said the couple, each of whom remains free on $100,000 bond, would contest the charges in court.

Riley introduced herself to the two alleged victims and then brought them over to meet Robicheaux, according to Rackauckas, who said the drugs they are accused of using include Ecstasy, date rape drugs and cocaine. She had been told she was going to a boat party but Robicheaux and Riley took her to their apartment. In a joint statement, the lawyers added: "All allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied".

Authorities say women met the pair during social encounters where they became intoxicated and ended up at Robicheaux's apartment.

After investigating videos on Robicheaux's phone, authorities worry there may be hundreds more victims.

"It must be noted that none of the allegations in this matter relate to or concern Dr. Robicheaux's medical practice or patients in any way, " the attorneys said.

Robicheaux once appeared on a now-canceled reality TV show about online dating.

He said numerous women in the videos appeared unable to consent to sexual contact. "Riley believe that such allegations do a disservice to, and dangerously undermine, the true victims of sexual assault, and they are eager to have the proper spotlight shed on this case in a public trial", the statement read. The couple drank with the second victim until she was unconscious and sexually assaulted her with the intention of raping her, officials said.
