New York – Actress Taryn Manning has denied wrongdoing after being arrested for criminal contempt. As reported by E! Online, the Orange Is the New Black star is accused of sending her alleged stalker threatening texts and violating a restraining order.
Manning has accused Jeanine Heller, who was arrested in September for allegedly violating a protective order, of stalking her.
Manning’s attorney Stacey Richman is quoted as releasing a statement on the matter saying, “In response to a reported arrest of Ms. Manning, please note that the District Attorney’s Office investigated an allegation of a violation of an order of protection. The District Attorney declined to prosecute Ms. Manning and the arrest was voided. The allegation was false.
“It is unfortunate that additional false allegations by an individual convicted of violating orders of protection intended to protect Ms. Manning are facilitated by purported news organizations to perpetuate the harassment of Ms. Manning exponentially.”
