Woman Claims Timothy Hutton Raped Her When She Was Only 14
According to the woman, Hutton was not the only one. His friend watched him do it and later took turns on her as well. This is Sera Johnston we are talking about, who said that the incident occurred in Vancouver in 1983. She tells that she was in Granville Island with other three friends when Hutton was shooting Iceman (1984). Him, along with his two friends invited the girls to hang out at Hutton’s hotel. After drinking something that they were served, Hutton got close to Johnston, brought her to his bedroom and raped her while his friend watched on.
Johnston tells that she filed a report in late 2019 in Vancouver about the alleged incident. She told the men she was 17 years old but later admitted that she was 14. Although the age of consent is 16 years now, it was 14 back in 1983.
The accuser tells that she protested to Timothy Hutton to stop as well. Telling him things like her mom would not be happy to find this out or “don’t think this is a good idea”. However, the Netflix star told her “it’ll be okay, it won’t last long, and you’ll be fine”.
According to what The Hollywood Reporter tells, Timothy Hutton as completely denied this claim of raping a 14 years old girl. He even refused to know the accuser at all. According to his lawyer:
“[Hutton] will not spend one more minute dignifying these allegations as they are patently false and designed only to extort money from him. [Johnston] provided salacious, heinous, and graphic details of this made-up sexual encounter that supposedly occurred 36 years ago. Although these were disgusting details any smut fiction writer could conjure up.”
Hutton has hired two law firms and three representatives, while Johnston has also hired a lawyer, seeking a financial settlement.
