The actor who played the role of Cory Baxter on Disney previously missed out on his arraignment date in June so it was re-scheduled to this month. Massey’s lawyer, Lee Hutton, said that the legal team attempted to contact the D.A.’s office to no avail. He added that Massey was never served any papers and that his legal team is “concerned with the misrepresentations made in court. Indeed, we will move forward to defend these allegations but also determine why due process has not been followed.”
The King County’s District Attorney’s office responded to the state, declaring that they never received any sort of communication from Massey’s legal team.
“Further, Mr. Massey, nor any representatives of him, have filed anything in the Court docket,” a representative for the office said. “It is possible that Mr. Massey’s attorney is calling the wrong office. It’s also worth noting that Mr. Massey previously acknowledged the filing of the case in past media articles since the first arraignment date, which also included today’s new arraignment date. There’s no misrepresentation here. Quite simply, Mr. Massey did not appear in court.”
Kyle Massey is charged with one count of immoral communication with a minor.
