Following the Variety report, these claims are related to a 2017 event involving Bell, who was 31 at the time, and a 15-year-old girl he met online. Authorities claim that Bell and the minor exchanged social media messages that were “sexual in nature.” Resultantly, he was given a sentence of 200 hours of community service and two years of probation.
Bell was detained for a DUI in 2015, and his bail was set at $20,000. He spent four days in jail in that situation after entering a no-contest plea to a misdemeanor.
According to some reports, the actor lately was relocated to Mexico, took the last name Campana, and then released two music videos, one of which featured the musician Jorge Blanco.
