This means the 50-year-old's criminal record is officially wiped clean!

In case you didn't know, the thespian was repeatedly arrested in the 90s for drug-related crimes. He served a total of two years and eight months in jail, and completed his parole in 2002.

In October, the New York native received an order from a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, who believes he has "lived an honest and upright life, exhibited good moral character, and conducted himself as a law-abiding citizen."

The pardon reads:

"By completion of his sentence and good conduct in the community of his residence since his release, Robert John Downey, Jr. has paid his debt to society and earned a full and unconditional pardon."

Most of the people who were forgiven had minor drug offenses that are no longer felonies under California law.

Congratulations to RDJ!

Denver District Court Judge Kandace C. Gerdes said in an order she vacated Moses-EL's conviction based on new evidence as well as previously admitted evidence that was "sufficient on salient points to allow a jury to probably return a verdict of acquittal in favor of the Defendant."

During the original 1987 investigation, the victim alleged to police that she was drinking with

Nicki Minaj is standing by her man.

As we reported, Meek Mill could face jail time for violating his probation after he traveled outside of Philadelphia WITHOUT permission.

The All Eyes On You rapper was arrested in 2009 on drug and weapons charges, and even violated his probation once before in 2014.

Even with all of this legal turmoil, the 28-year-old has found a way to get himself into even MORE trouble!

Recently, the Philly-native had to submit a urine sample to the court. When the lab technician received it, it turned out to be water.

The musician — whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams — defended his specimen, saying he drinks a lot of water and protein shakes due to his fitness routine.

On Thursday, Minaj appeared in court and reiterated what her man said. She affirms that Williams does NOT do drugs and did NOT botch his urine.

Does the judge believe them?! Time will tell.

Bryan Singer's Sexual Abuse Accuser Has Been Sentenced To Two Years In Prison For Fraud!

Filed under: Legal Matters

no title

Legal karma?!

As we reported last year, Michael Egan — the man who famously accused director Bryan Singer of sexual abuse when he was a teenager — was charged with securities fraud after he fooled at least 14 individuals to give him money for fake investments.

Allegedly, the 33-year-old used the dough — a reported $300,000 — to fund his lavish lifestyle.

Well on Tuesday, a judge has sentenced Egan to two years in prison.

As we wrote, Michael's claims against the X-Men director, as well as two other Hollywood executives, were dismissed.

The convicted criminal's former attorney — Jeffrey Herman — even issued formal apologies to the three wrongfully accused men.

Herman said:

"I deeply regret the pain, suffering and damage the lawsuits and publicity have caused you, and your family, friends and colleagues."

We just hope justice is brought down on anyone who breaks the law!

Suge Knight & Katt Williams Are Expected To Go To Trial Over Robbery Charges

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

Suge & Katt will go to court.

It looks like Suge Knight and Katt Williams are headed to court.

Last year, the two allegedly stole photographer Leslie Ridden's camera, and now they're being ordered to stand trial for the robbery case.

During a preliminary hearing on Tuesday at Los Angeles Superior Court, Judge Ronald Coen said that there's evidence to back up the charges.

He also said that Leslie's other claim against Suge — that the 50-year-old threatened her before swiping her equipment — could also stand up.

However, lawyers for the comedian and the music exec say that their clients were only trying to keep the photog from snapping shots of the record producer's child.

The Compton native's attorney, Thomas Mesereau, denied all the accusations, including the hit-and-run murder charge Suge is currently facing that has nothing to do with this particular case:

"[Suge] never robbed anyone, and he never murdered anyone. He is completely innocent. He never touched this woman, he never ran after her, he didn't assault her. It's a ridiculous case and he will be acquitted."

Not only is Thomas adamant that the former Death Row Records CEO is innocent, he actually seemed to throw Katt under the bus, saying that the actor and another member of their entourage "struggled" with Leslie, while Suge just wasn't involved.

He added:

"But because Suge Knight was there, and because he was concerned about his son, they charged him with a felony."

The 44-year-old's attorney admitted that Katt did take the camera, but from another woman who had already snatched it from the photographer.

During this week's hearing, Leslie claimed that she was injured in the altercation, explaining:

"There's a rip in my wrist. I'm ambidextrous, but my hands don't work."

She also alleges she had a concussion.

Suge and Katt have both pleaded not guilty to the charges, and are expected to be arraigned on October 27. The Black Kapital Records founder is still behind bars for his hit-and-run case.
