Roiland pleaded not guilty in 2020, according to court records, and was released on $50,000 bail in August of that year. Hearings in the case have continued ever since, with the latest taking place on Thursday.

In a statement, Roiland’s attorney, T. Edward Welbourn, said: “It is difficult to overstate how inaccurate recent media coverage of this situation has been. To be clear, not only is Justin innocent, but we also have every expectation that this matter is on track to be dismissed once the district attorney’s office has completed its methodical review of the evidence. We look forward to clearing Justin’s name and helping him move forward as quickly as possible.”

NBCNews reported that “a protection order filed in October 2020 and documented in court minutes said that Roiland must not harass, threaten, or monitor the person named in the protection order.” The news outlet also reported that during Thursday’s pre-trial hearing, Roiland’s lawyer stated that the show’s creator had been presented with a plea offer.
