Drake Bell Pleads Guilty To Attempted Child Endangerment

Drake Bell has pleaded guilty to charges of attempted endangering of children and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles. Bell, who is best known for his role in the Nickelodeon sitcom ‘Drake & Josh’, had previously pleaded not guilty. The charges are in relation to an incident that took place in Cleveland in 2017 involving a 15-year-old girl. The teenager, who had established a relationship with Bell a few years before the incident, attended his concert in 2017. While at the concert Bell allegedly “violated his duty of care and, in doing so, created a risk of harm to the victim”. Bell also sent the teenager inappropriate messages on social media in the months leading up to the concert. All questions will be answered at sentencing, including why Mr. Bell chose to enter today's plea, Ian N. Friedman, Drake Bell’s Attorney. Bell’s sentencing is set to take place on July 12.
