Alexandru Hossu, a 36-year-old Romanian immigrant in the U.S. illegally, was charged with raping the 13-year-old daughter of his former girlfriend in October 2010.
The sheriff denied defaming DA Adam Levy. He also said the timing of the lawsuit was “blatantly political” and implied it was intended to damage his re-election campaign.
Adam Levy, who is the son of TV’s “Judge Judy,” said he has acted properly and that the sheriff’s allegations are unfounded.
Alexandru Hossu, 35, is accused of raping a 12-year-old girl on two occasions on the same day in October, 2010.
