(Variety) – Kyle Massey, a former child star on the Disney Channel, has had a warrant issued for his arrest in Washington State after the 29-year-old failed to appear for an arraignment stemming from a charge of “immoral” communication with a minor, Fox News confirmed on Monday.
According to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Massey was due in court at 8:30 a.m. on Monday to be arraigned on a charge of immoral communication with a minor. Massey did not appear, and a judge has signed a $100,000 warrant for his arrest. Massey’s attorney did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.
This was not the first court date that Massey has missed in regards to this case, as he also did not appear for the initial arraignment on June 28. According to the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, an original summons sent to a Los Angeles address was returned to sender and received by the Department of Judicial Administration on June 24.
The charge against Massey, who appeared on Disney Channel shows like “That’s So Raven” and “Corey in the House,” was filed on June 14 in King County. According to court documents, Massey has been charged with “intent to reach a minor, [and] did communicate with… a person believed to be a minor, for immoral purposes of a sexual nature” between December 2018 and January 2019. Massey was previously sued in 2019 for allegedly sending explicit texts and photos to a 13-year-old girl.
