Controversy

In October 2007, Andre Birleanu was charged with sexual misconduct and aggravated harassment due to accusations from a 19-year-old actress, charges which he denied. According the law enforcement sources quoted in the New York Post, he "has served a half-dozen prison stints since 2000 on charges including assault, harassment, criminal contempt, criminal mischief and trespassing." [9] Almost a year later after many court appearances the DA's Office in the Criminal Court of Manhattan has dropped all charges on both cases.[10] Birleanu had maintained his innocence the entire time and had said he wanted to take both cases to trial to prove his innocence and counter prosecute for false charges.[11]
