Disney actor Orlando Brown charged with several crimes

New Jersey residents may have heard that Orlando Brown, the child actor who played Eddie Thomas in Disney Channel's "That's So Raven," was recently arrested and charged with assault and drug counts. The incident happened Jan. 17 in Los Angeles.

Officers with the Torrance Police Department report that they responded after Mr. Brown allegedly struck his girlfriend. They claim that Mr. Brown then resisted arrest. Upon bringing him to the police department, they also found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Mr. Brown was booked into jail, where he remained for about a month. He has hotly denied the allegations of the officers through videos he posted online. Those videos have since been removed. He is facing multiple charges, including battery, resisting arrest, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. His next court appearance is scheduled for March 28 in the Los Angeles District Court.

When a person is facing criminal charges, it is best not to talk about it online or to anyone. Prosecutors may use anything someone says against them if the statements are made freely. It is rare that a person's statements will actually be helpful. Instead, people may want to assert their rights to remain silent and to an attorney if police try to interrogate them. It is also a good idea for them to stay off social media and to avoid talking about what happened to anyone except their attorney. What a person says to their criminal defense attorney is confidential. Defending a case can become more difficult if people have made multiple statements about what happened to others. People may instead want to ask for a lawyer. A criminal defense attorney might be able to build a strong defense for their client in order to try to get a favorable result.
