ALBERTO DEL RIO LEGAL UPDATE

By Mike Johnson on 2020-07-08 12:45:00

Over the last few weeks, PWInsider.com has received questions asking about whether there's been any follow-up to former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio's May arrest in San Antonio, Texas for sexual assault, a second degree felony.

PWInsider.com has learned there has not been additional movement in the case as of this writing, as the charges have not yet been brought before a grand jury.  Once that happens, if the Grand Jury rules there should be an official indictment, prosecution would commence and move towards a criminal trial.  Del Rio remains free on $50,000 bond and we are told that he has hired several defense attorneys to represent him.  

Del Rio, real name Jose Alberto Rodriguez Chucuan, 43, was arrested on 5/4 after the victim went to local authorities, stating that on Sunday 5/3 at 10 PM Chucuan allegedly became angry with her and physically assaulted her after accusing her of infidelity.  When the victim would not admit to the infidelity, Chucuan allegedly slapped her "across the head" several times.  The victim also alleged that Chucuan "forced her to wear a dress and dance for him" and that when she refused and he told her not to start crying because if she did, "he would take her son and drop him in the middle of the road somewhere."

The arrest affidavit stated that the woman alleged Chucuan had sexually assaulted her and that she had her injuries documented via photographs. 

At the time, The FOX affiliate in San Antonio reported, "Police said Rodriguez Chucuan then tied the woman's hands with boxing straps, put a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for several hours, using various objects. According to investigators, he also punched her in the back during the assault, causing visible injuries. The victim told detectives she does not remember much after he placed his hand around her throat."

TMZ later reported additional details that brought the accusations into a much more disturbing light, stating that the victim reported the attack started at around 10 PM on 5/3 and that it lasted over 16 hours, ending  on 5/4 on 2:30 PM.  The victim went to the police the same day with TMZ's report noting that the responding officer saw bruises on her face, arms, legs and neck.  The victim alleged that Chucuan attempted to burn her passport and smashed her laptop computer and cell phone.  TMZ reported that the victim, "..also claims Del Rio attacked her, causing multiple injuries and left her, 'feeling woozy and dizzy from the hits to her head.' "    The victim told police she was afraid and intended to leave San Antonio as soon as possible.

If Chucuan is found guilty, the minimum prison sentence for sexual assault under Texas law would be 2 years with a maximum of up to 20 years.  As a second degree felony under Texas law, sexual assault can also lead to a fine of up to $10,000, in addition to incarceration.   .

Chucuan is best known publicly as former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio in WWE, formerly Dos Caras in Mexico and who has wrestled as Alberto el Patron in Impact Wrestling and fought under that name last year for MMA group Combate Americas, where he also holds a figurehead executive position.  A representative for MMA promotion Combate Americas declined to give a statement to PWInsider.com at the time of Chucuan's arrest.
