Now One Life to Live’s gentle giant, Sean Ringgold has come under investigation with some serious allegations! The actor who played bodyguard Shaun Evans, apparently has found himself in the middle of a Superior Court of New Jersey case that has commenced a grand jury investigation into allegations of rape.
According to Radar Online, Ringgold who also has been the bodyguard for Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise, and has worked for Queen Latifah and L L Cool J, could face a charge of “criminal sexual conduct” if the grand jury decides to indict him, a court official confirmed to the Internet outlet!
The filed complaint details that on June 28, Sean and a woman met up at an Olive Garden in Seacaucus, New Jersey, where the woman claims that Ringgold sexually assaulted her after dinner, as well as on the ride home. Ringgold allegedly did “commit criminal sexual contact … using physical force or coercion, specifically by pulling up the victim’s shirt, grabbing her right breast and putting his mouth over her left breast while stopped at a traffic light inside of his motor vehicle.”
Declining to get into specific detail about the still-horrifying attack, the woman claims, “He pulled behind a building to finish the job.” As soon as the shock wore off, the woman was quick to take action. “I immediately decided to press charges,” she says. “The police knew within two days.” Notations on the criminal complaint show that Ringgold was arrested on July 2 and first appeared in court for the case on July 6.
However, Sean is quick to point out this is not true at all! When approached by Radar, Ringgold, denied all claims. “No way, that’s out of control,” Ringgold said. “This person is obviously crazy. I have soap fans, they are a little crazy! Ringgold insisted, “The associations I have … you can really ask yourself that question. Do I look like I need to do that? It’s saddening to hear.”
So, what do you think happened here? Will Sean be proven innocent? Weigh-in!
