Sebastian Chacon, who recently played drummer Warren Rojas in Daisy Jones & The Six, has been accused by three women of sexual assault. The plaintiffs, identified in a lawsuit filed in New York this week as Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2 and Jane Doe 3, allege the assaults took place between 2017 and 2022 in New York and Los Angeles.
The lawsuit, reviewed by Deadline and filed under the Adult Survivors Act, says plaintiffs are seeking “to recover for (Chacon’s) tortious conduct involving similar patterns of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse that he inflicted upon them individually between 2017 and 2022.”
Chacon’s attorney, Jeff Chabrowe, told People in a statement that the actor “vehemently denies these allegations.”
Regarding Jane Doe 1, the suit alleges that “starting around the summer of 2017, Chacon, who was 24 years old, groomed Jane Doe 1, aged 16, under the guise of a romantic relationship. Then, in December 2017, Chacon encouraged Jane Doe 1 to consume multiple alcoholic beverages and then sexually assaulted her in his home while she was still underage and legally incapable of consent.”
In the case of Jane Doe 2 and Jane Doe 3, who say they were in romantic relationships with Chacon starting in 2018 and 2022, respectively, the suit alleges Chacon strangled them during nonconsensual sex until they lost consciousness, and continued to have sex with them.
The women, who have claimed that they have attempted suicide or had suicidal thoughts following the alleged incidents, are seeking a trial by jury as well as “compensatory damages for all physical injuries, emotional distress, psychological harm, anxiety, humiliation, physical and emotional pain and suffering, and other harm,” according to the complaint.
The attorney for the plaintiffs, Aurore DeCarlo, in a statement to People said, “The facts alleged in the complaint, speak for themselves.” She added, “I just think it’s a huge testament to the strength and courage of these women that they found each other. They realized that they had experienced that same pattern of abuse or a very similar pattern of abuse and they’ve banded together to hold this individual accountable.”
Chacon’s attorney also told People, “Mr. Chacon will fully cooperate with any investigation and provide any evidence necessary to prove his innocence.”
