This must be the year of childhood struggle. Orlando Brown, who played Raven’s best friend “Eddie” on the show “That’s So Raven” was sentenced to 6 months in jail after a DUI arrest from 2011.
In what TMZ is calling one of the longest, drawn out DUI cases ever, Brown was taken into custody on August 23, 2013 after he failed to present proof that he had completed the court-ordered alcohol education classes that were a consequence of the initial arrest.
So far, he’s served two weeks of the 6 month sentence.
Word on the street is that since the L.A. County jails are so overcrowded, Brown is expected to be released after just 27 days, which would be on September 19.
Even if he does only end up serving 27 days in jail, that’s 27 days too long when all you had to do was go to a class and keep the documentation stating you did so.
