‘Rick And Morty’s Justin Roiland Is Charged With Domestic Violence

Justin Roilandthe co-creator of Rick and Morty and the voice of both title characters is facing some pretty troubling allegations of domestic violence. While not all details of the case are public yet, the allegations stem from an incident that occurred back in 2020 between Roiland and an unknown party who was dating Roiland at the time.

The charges consist of two felonies. There is one count of domestic violence with bodily injury, while the other is false imprisonment by fraud, threat, violence and/or deception. In October 2020, Roiland pleaded not guilty to both charges. He was subsequently released on $50,000 bail. There have so far been up to ten hearings in the case, but an official trial is still to come. Right now there is no official date yet either.

According to NBC News, an order of protection was also filed against Roiland in 2020, which included a number of rules that Roiland must obey. These include one intended to prevent Roiland from harassing, threatening or monitoring the other party. Another is that Roiland cannot physically come within 100 feet of the other party. Roiland also had to surrender any firearms he may have owned to the court.

Roiland’s attorney, T. Edward Welbourn, has commented on the case. “We look forward to clearing Justin’s name and helping him move forward as quickly as possible … It is hard to overstate how inaccurate the recent media coverage of this situation has been. To be clear, Justin is not only innocent , but we also have every expectation that this case is on track to be dismissed once the District Attorney’s office completes its methodical review of the evidence.We look forward to clearing Justin’s name and helping him move forward as soon as possible .”
