Drake Bell sentenced to two years probation for offenses against a minor
The young actor and singer, has been imposed probation for two years, as well as 200 hours of community service and is strictly prohibited from contacting the young woman who would have been his victim.
According to People magazine, actor Drake Bell has been sentenced to two years probation and 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to one count of child endangerment and distribution of harmful material to a minor. During her sentencing hearing, the now 19-year-old gave a brief statement about what she experienced with the performer and the criminal acts:
“I decided to write this statement because I want justice to be served more than anything else. He appeared in court today via Zoom instead of in person. I am not surprised and it shows what a coward he is, but I am not a coward. He is calculating. He sexually harassed and abused me. He is a monster and a danger to children.”
The case, in case you don’t remember the details, became public a little over a month ago when it was revealed that Bell had been arrested by Cleveland authorities on the above charges.
Weeks later, it became known that the performer had been found guilty of both offenses and that the victim who had filed the complaint against him was a young woman who attended his concerts and was contacted by him when she was a minor in 2017.
At the time, the details of the case had not been specified. Now, the young woman, 19, who raised the complaint against him explained the details.
According to her statement, allegedly Bell would have contacted her since she was 12 years old and abused her three years later.
She also assured that the singer had sent her pictures of his genitals, this last detail was refuted by the actor’s defense and assures that there is no evidence of it.
