Squanch Games’ Justin Roiland facing domestic violence charges

Justin Roiland of Squanch Games and Rick and Morty fame has been charged with felony domestic violence in California.

As reported by NBC, this is in relation to an incident that took place in January 2020, going by a criminal complaint filed in May of that year by the district attorney of Orange County. Roiland has been charged with one felony count of domestic battery, as well as one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit.

Roiland pleaded not guilty to both these charges in 2020. His attorney has said that he expects the case will end up being dismissed.

The partner in question is anonymous and only known as Jane Doe. They have a protective order against Roiland which expires in October 2023.

Roiland is the co-creator of animated show Rick and Morty, as well as the co-founder of developer Squanch Games. Kotaku has reported that a designer at the studio claimed she was sexually harassed at work, with the developer then firing her after she complained. This case was settled in September 2019.
