Andy Dick sentenced to prison, must register as a sex offender

Andy Dick has been sentenced to 90 days in prison and has to register as a sex offender, reports The Blast.

The conviction comes after the disgraced comedian was recently convicted of sexual harassment stemming from a 2018 incident in which a Los Angeles Uber driver accused Dick of groping him.

Dick will be in the Los Angeles County Jail beginning November 17th. When his sentence is served, he will spend 12 months under close surveillance on “summary probation”. He was also ordered to complete 52 Alcoholics Anonymous Sessions, 52 Sexual Coercion Anonymous Sessions, 12 Psychological Counseling Sessions, and make amends to the victim.

As we’ve reported numerous times in the past, Dick – who has also defended similarly shunned Hollywood elites like Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein – has a long and harrowing criminal history. He was arrested last May in Orange County, California, on suspicion of sexual assault. In 2017, Dick was fired from the films Raising Buchanan and Vampire Dad for “groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing/licking, and making sexual suggestions from at least four members of the production.”

Dick was also arrested last month and charged with burglary for allegedly stealing power tools from a house under construction. He pleaded not guilty and was sent to the Santa Barbara County Jail, where his bail was set at $50,000.
