Since we know so little about what the charges are, I think we should withhold judgment until the legal process is allowed to finish.

Yeah. IT said all initial charges were dropped, but now there's 2 more.

The charges weren't dropped, the court case was abandoned. Maybe a juror knew him or something?

That sucks, and why is it a bad month for PR actors, did something else happen as well? Unless people are referring to Ricardo's case, but that's been going on for a year or two now.

It notes some details "cannot be reported," I hate that about media law outside the US.

In the UK at least, that's usually because of the age of alleged victims.

Not to mention public opinion can get nasty and you want all of the obtainable facts to a case before going to the public about it in a big way. Idk, how it is outside the US but it can also be to have a larger amount of objective people to choose from for Jury duty.

It's actually pretty remarkable that a franchise boasting over 20 years and over 100 main actors is only now experiencing such incredible legal black eyes.

There really are no words for this situation otherwise.

Come to think about it (and on a much lower scale), I read something about HDJ being impersonated by someone and it causing a lot of grief. :\ (I guess maybe someone should keep an eye out on the other Samurai actors? )

As for the charges themselves, I legitimately don't know what to make of this.

Man, does anyone care for SPD outside of the Ranger fandom? No mention of either SPD or Samurai...I guess people are tired of talking about Samurai [Elgar *zing*].

Going to give him the benefit of doubt as well, hoping it turns out in his acquittal, but it does not look good IMO.
