Compelled Timothy Hutton Sera Johnston and Sexual Assault Allegations
Timothy Hutton is being sued for sexual assault - so that's fun. Waiting 30 years to tell your story. Because why not, he's making money off of his show Leverage - oh, which was cancelled a while back and has a new tv show, but, hey, better late than never. I guess.
The trio of junior high girls had only been chatting with Timothy Hutton for a little while when he suggested they join him and his friends at his hotel. It was 1983 in Vancouver, and for Sera Johnston, 14 years old and already a working actor, it was a dream, a chance to hang out with her Oscar-winning idol, who was in town to shoot the movie Iceman. As for what guys in their twenties might want out of girls her age, she didn’t give it much thought.
“It was like we were entertaining them — cute. We were funny, you know what I mean?” Johnston told BuzzFeed News.
But when they got to Hutton’s room, she said, the situation didn’t seem so innocent anymore. Johnston recalled Hutton and his friends offering the girls drinks. She nervously took a seat near the television.
