Dennis Hopper's Son

Accused of Raping

15-Year-Old Girl

EXCLUSIVE

Henry Hopper accused of rape.Dennis Hopper's 21-year-old son has been accused of raping a 15-year-old girl ... after plying her with drugs and alcohol ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

Henry Hopper -- who starred in Gus Van Zant's "Restless" in 2011 -- is being sued by the mother of an unidentified 16-year-old girl ... who claims the girl met Hopper through a mutual friend in Feb. 2011.

According to the legal papers, the girl -- identified in the lawsuit as Jan Doe -- claims the two began to communicate on Facebook ... and in the months that followed, Hopper invited her to his home in Venice, CA on multiple occasions with the promise of drugs and alcohol.

In the suit, Doe claims Hopper would wait until she was intoxicated ... and "engaged in sexually offensive conduct with her" ... including sexual intercourse, forced oral copulation and sodomy.

It's unclear if Doe ever reported the allegations to police.

In the suit, Doe's lawyer claims the actor "preyed upon a young impressionable child, suggesting that he cared for her, luring her into his home with promises of alcohol and illegal drugs, and then repeatedly taking advantage of her youth an vulnerability."

Doe's mother claims the girl suffered significant injuries to her emotional health, strength and activity ... and was required to employ multiple mental health care professionals for treatment.

She's suing for unspecified damages.

Attempts to reach Hopper were unsuccessful.

Hopefully someone will also sue the mother for not watching a fifteen year old child better. I am sorry, but why do people allow their children to go places where they do not know the people they are going with? I grew up at a time where you were not allowed to go ANYWHERE without my mother meeting the parents who were supposed to be there at all times. I question the mother in this case. Why is her daughter out doing drugs and being intoxicated and the mother doesn't know where she is? I cannot keep my children off the internet and social media sites, but I can damn well make sure the computer is in the kitchen where I can glance over at what is being looked at, monitor who is "friended" on facebook, and as a mother it is my job to protect and try to limit these types of things from happening like in this case. Im sorry to rant, but your daughter is out getting boozed up and drugged. She comes home and doesn't look out of it? This has happened on multiple occasions. The mother can't smell something is up? What kind of mom is that? People have no control over their children these days. I almost wonder if this isn't a set up. Go have your kid go over there and do things they shouldn't, and then go after the guy. Watch your children better, be a better parent, and maybe things like this wouldn't happen.

"luring her into his home with promises of alcohol and illegal drugs, and then repeatedly taking advantage of her youth an vulnerability."
If this kid was into drugs and alcohol, she doesn't seem so innocent to me!!!! Sorry, rape is NEVER excusable, but where was this girls mothter when she made these "dates" with this guy?
"It's unclear if Doe ever reported the allegations to police." - how can she file a lawsuit when there is no police report - don't you do that when your kid tells you that someone molested you??? Naw, some people rather prepare a law suit to get some money. This is all BS.

Don't know any 15yr old girls stupid enough to show up on some guys doorstep after meeting him on ****book and NOT expect to have sex with him. It's obvious once this girl found out how rich his daddy was that claimed not to like what happened to her. Hopper's kid prob didn't want anything more to do with her and she took revenge by laimung rape. Check those ID's men before you poke it!

Working with a paralegal for several years I've learned that the police and DA's trump these charges up and manipulate the statements to make the accused fit the profile of a predatory rapist. The charges are never what really happened. That said, the parents are to blame here. Children should not be unmonitored on FB. America needs to redefine the word "rape" and "consensual."

There's a problem here    

Rape in any form is still rape but the only reason you're hearing about this one is because the rapist is the son of a famous person. Consider rape the same as a murder except the victim is still breathing when its over. Prosecute the little freak and let him meet Bubba.
