The Bachelorette Alum DeMario Jackson Sued for Sexual Assault

Content Warning: This story is about sexual assault and rape.

Bachelor Nation star DeMario Jackson has been accused of sexually abusing two women in a new lawsuit.

According to court documents filed on September 20 and obtained by E! News, 35-year-old is being sued by two people, identified only as Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, who claim they were raped by Jackson in separate incidents after going on a date with him. Both women say in the complaint that they suffered “injury, damage, loss and damage to her/their body and mind”, as well as “personal invasion and humiliation”.

Last year, prosecutors reviewed the charges but declined to prosecute Jackson due to “insufficient evidence,” according to a letter of rejection from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

In a statement to E! News, Jackson’s attorney, Walter Moselycalling the allegations “completely baseless”, adding in part: “In the coming days, we will be releasing the evidence we shared with police at the time of the alleged incidents. Unfortunately, DeMario and I will have to record this fight again to clear his name. As before, we will have the same result clearing the name.”

At the time, Jackson appeared “intoxicated” and “started a scene” for Doe 1’s friends according to the indictment.
