Justin Roiland Wiki, Biography

American voice actor Justin Roiland, best known for co-creating the adult animated series Rick and Morty, has been charged with felony domestic violence.

According to an NBC news report published on Friday, January 13, the 42-year-old personality is facing felony charges of domestic violence in a 2020 incident in Orange County, California. He appeared in court for a pretrial hearing on Thursday.

According to the complaint obtained by the publication, Roiland is charged with one felony domestic battery against a spouse/partner with bodily harm and one felony false imprisonment for threat, violence, fraud and/or deception.

NBC and Variety reported that Justin Roiland was found not guilty in the 2020 complaint by an anonymous woman he was dating at the time. In a statement issued to the publication, the Emmy winner’s lawyer, T. Edward Welbourn, claimed that Roiland is innocent.

“We look forward to clearing Justin’s name and helping him move forward as quickly as possible.”

According to the Coastal Legal Center, a felony domestic violence crime occurs when one person has caused serious bodily harm or injury to another person in the same household. This law protects children, spouses, roommates, dating partners, and grandparents. Felony crimes also come into play in situations where there is sexual assault, kidnapping, or rape involved.

Justin Roiland will attend another hearing in April 2023

According to NBC News, the incident occurred in January 2020, and the voice actor was charged in May. The 42-year-old man was arrested and released in August on $50,000 bail. He was formally prosecuted in October of the same year.

In October 2020, a protective order was filed against Justin stating that he must not threaten, harass, or monitor the Jane Doe victim. He is prohibited from coming within 100 feet of the person named in the filing and was also ordered to surrender any firearms he possessed.

Although no trial date has been scheduled at this time, Justin Roiland is required to appear at another pretrial hearing on April 27.

The matter has been disputed in more than a dozen sessions since then. But according to the news publication, much of the information about the case was sealed under the protection order.
