The producer of Netflix series Extraction, David Guillod, has been reportedly charged with eleven sexual misconduct allegations.
Who has filed the complaint?
According to the attorney Joyce Dudley, four unknown women have lodged several complaints against him in Santa Barbara County and Los Angeles County.
The allegations include an attempt to rape, kidnapping to commit rape and rape of unconscious victims. Although these accusations are not yet confirmed. But if Mr. Guillod is proven guilty, the potential imprisonment ranges from 21 years to a lifetime.
Dudley confirmed that David was in custody for some time. His bailing amount is $3 million.
Besides, David has been facing sex crime investigations for a long time now. The first one was filed on May 21, 2012; second on December 14, 2104; third and fourth one between 30 and 31 January 2015. In February 2019, actress A.J. Cook filed a suit against Guillod. She alleged that he did not disclose the pending suits of sexual assault against him.
Also, he was accused of a sexual crime during the #MeToo movement.
What does David Guillod have to say against the accusations?
Firstly, Guillod’s attorney, Philip K Cohen, pleads that his client is not guilty. Secondly, the producer and co-CEO of Primary Wave Entertainment also claims innocence. Not only that but bur he also confirmed that he has strong evidence to prove his case (via USA Today)
Moreover, Cohen, in his statement, said, “An overwhelming amount of evidence has been collected over the course of this investigation disputing these charges. DNA has come back negative in the Los Angeles case. Witnesses have come forward in support of Mr. Guillod’s account of events. The numerous text messages and emails obtained by the defense tell a story very different than that which is being alleged. Additionally, Mr. Guillod has passed five independent polygraph examinations.”
Whatever the case may be, the next court hearing is on June 30 on the video conference platform, Zoom.
