The bad news continues for the stars of Criminal Minds!
Not only did Thomas Gibson melt down and allegedly assault one of the show's writers this week — which led to his eventual firing — but now, we're learning that former co-star Shemar Moore is dealing with his own criminal trouble!

In Moore's case, unlike Gibson, it's not something he did, but rather something done to him — a former guest star on the CBS show allegedly stole more than $60,000 from the actor, who played FBI agent Derek Morgan on the show for 11 seasons!
According to the LA Times, Keith Tisdell was sentenced in a California court to probation and 45 days of labor after a plea bargain he made in the case.
Moore was MAD in court, speaking with obvious emotion at the sentencing (below):
"I've done a lot for him because he had me, my friends fooled. I'm not here for money. I'm here because he betrayed a friendship. This is not OK. You don't do this to people."
Tisdell, who appeared in two episodes of Criminal Minds and later became friends with Moore off set, apparently became involved with Shemar's retail merchandise company, Baby Girl, LLC.

The company gives a portion of its proceeds to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and as you can see in a picture on Tisdell's Instagram account (below), he was closely involved with Moore's business holdings over the past year:
In January, then, Tisdell was nabbed on embezzlement charges, and he later admitted to grand theft — leading to the plea bargain that now has him facing hard labor and probation.
Who knew there was so much actual crime going on behind the scenes over at Criminal Minds?!
