The sensational charges against a Newport Beach doctor and his girlfriend made lurid headlines in At a press conference, then-Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckus put forth that multiple women said they had been kidnapped, drugged and sexually assaulted by Dr. Grant Robicheaux and Cerissa Riley. The couple denied the charges. The case seemed made for the true-crime genre: Allegations of drinking, drugs and sex. It debuts on Monday, March 29, Images courtesy of Justine Harman and the podcast.

Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer speaks during a press conference announcing that the charges in the case against Dr. As Harman was planning a move from New York City to Los Angeles early inshe decided to take a deeper look at the case.

The story is a difficult one for a variety of reasons. Sexual assault is a traumatic topic, and then, too, no trial has yet been held; the case remains open-ended for now as Robicheaux and Riley have been neither convicted nor acquitted. The legal situation has been changeable, too.

Rackauckus initially filed the case against Robicheaux and Riley in as he ran for re-election against challenger Todd Spitzer, who ultimately defeated him. More than a year later, in FebruarySpitzer announced he would seek to drop all charges for lack of evidenceclaiming Rackauckus had mishandled the case in an effort to use its publicity to aid his campaign. Spitzer apologized to Robicheaux and Riley. But here we are a year later.

Because courts were closed to the public and proceedings moved online, Harman says she was able to watch the back and forth of the case online from wherever she was at the moment. Definitely felt like I was just keyholing into this thing as a voyeur, which all of us kind of were either, consciously or subconsciously, during COVID. Somewhere, as the case and story moved through the legal system, a counterargument arose in which Robicheaux and Riley were described as modern-day swingers, whose sexual encounters and drug use were consensual.

Why does that feel weird to me?

Harman has not been successful in her attempts to interview Robicheaux and Riley, though she does dedicate an episode to each in which she explores their lives before they were defendants in the case. She says she has been able to talk with some of their accusers, though, and maintaining the presumption of innocence for the defendants while also treating the accusers with sensitivity has been the ongoing challenge of the podcast.
