'Marrying Millions' Star Bill Hutchinson Arrested for Sexual Assault

63-year-old was arrested in Texas for allegedly assaulting 17-year-old girl

Bill Hutchinson, who starred on both seasons of Lifetime's "Marrying Millions," has been arrested in Texas for sexual assault, TheWrap has confirmed with Highland Park police. He turned himself in on Wednesday and has since been released on bond.

Sexual assault is a second-degree felony.

Hutchinson, who is 63, allegedly sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl, according to the June arrest affidavit, which was obtained by TheWrap. The age of consent in Texas is 17, which means the high school junior would not be considered a minor, for consent purposes, in that state.

The accuser, who was living with Hutchinson, his children and his 23-year-old fiancée, said Hutchinson "would provide alcohol" to minors and allowed them to "smoke marijuana" in his home. She said Hutchinson had touched her breasts and nipples in the past. On this particular occasion, the accuser said she "was intoxicated and fell asleep on the couch."

"She woke to William Hutchinson digitally [penetrating] her vagina with his finger without her consent," the police report reads.

Lifetime did not immediately respond to our request for comment on Hutchinson's arrest.

Or here's the latest logline straight from Lifetime: Five new couples join the series with returning favorites Bill and Brianna from Dallas and Gentille and Brian from Las Vegas. From the creators of "90 Day Fiancé," "Marrying Millions" follows relationships where one partner is incredibly wealthy and the other is definitively not, leading the couple to face intense scrutiny from family and friends and questions about whether it’s true love…or true love of the money and lavish lifestyles. While these love stories may sound like modern-day fairytales, they are not without major challenges as the couples must try to bridge their vast differences and fit into each other worlds.

More details on Bill and Brianna, a woman nearly 40 years his junior, here: Bill, who describes himself as 60 years young, founded and currently runs a commercial real estate company with investments in the billions. Twice divorced, Bill met Brianna, 21, at a popular restaurant in Dallas where Brianna was a hostess and the two began dating. Despite their almost 40-year age gap, these two couldn’t be more in love with one another. Bill wants to introduce Brianna to the finer things in life but wonders if she is ready for Dallas high society and if Dallas high society is ready for her.
