Drake Bell pled guilty to charges of endangering children. It’s not clear how much time he will spend behind bars at this time. The trial is still ongoing in that regard.
TMZ reports that the former Nickelodeon pleaded guilty in court on Wednesday via Zoom. He pled guilt to the attempted endangering of children, a 4-degree felony. He also pled guilty to disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, a 1st degree misdemeanor.
The judge accepted Drake’s plea and he could face up to 18 months behind bars on the felony charge. He will be sentences in July for those crimes from December 2017.
According to prosecutors, a female juvenile filed a report with a local police department in Canada in October 2018 about an alleged incident with the Drake & Josh star. It is alleged that the incident took place the previous year in Cleveland.
It was revealed that the 15-year-old established a relationship with Drake several years prior to the incident. Prosecutors say that, while at a concert, Drake “violated his duty of care and, in doing so, created a risk of harm to the victim.”
It was also said that Drake sent her inappropriate social media messages. At this time it is unclear exactly what he sent her. This is still not a good situation either way.
