A Bel-Air investment banker and former actor and his female housemate were charged with drugging and sexually assaulting two women at his Sunset Boulevard mansion, prosecutors said Thursday.
Joseph Simon Arsenault, 40, and Heather Lynn Moe, 24, will be arraigned Wednesday in West Los Angeles Municipal Court.
The suspects were charged Wednesday with 13 counts of sexual assault, one count of assault causing great bodily injury and one count of possession of cocaine for sale.
The attacks occurred at Arsenault's Bel-Air mansion Aug. 20 and Sept. 25, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Laura Jane Maglinger.
The first victim told police that she was visiting a friend who had rented a guest house from Arsenault and that she was given a drink of what she believed was water. The drink was laced with a date rape drug called GHB--short for gamma-hydroxybutyrate, Maglinger said. The woman said she was then sexually assaulted.
The other victim met Moe at a nightspot and also was given a drink with GHB, prosecutors said. She said she was taken to Arsenault's home and sexually assaulted.
