A doctor who was on a reality-TV show and his girlfriend have been charged with rape, sexual assault

Grant Robicheaux and Cerissa Riley attacked two women they met in 2016, using drugs and alcohol to stop them from resisting, prosecutors in California said.

The pair has been charged with rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, and other crimes. The DA said the couple likely used their “good looks and charm to lower the inhibitions of their potential prey,” adding: “We tend to trust doctors who take an oath to do no harm. The second defendant being a female is key. A woman purporting to be his girlfriend clearly played a significant role in disarming the victims, making them feel comfortable and safe.”

Prosecutors said that Robicheaux, 38, and Riley, 31, met a 32-year-old woman at a restaurant in Newport Beach in April 2016, invited her to a party, and brought her to Robicheaux’s apartment while she was intoxicated. The pair gave the woman multiple drugs and sexually assaulted her while she was unable to resist. The woman contacted the police the next day, and a forensic exam found controlled substances in her system.
