For all the parents out there looking to get your kids into show business you have to pay attention to this story. In what can only be called a gross abuse of trust and position Josh Werkman, the child agent star for the likes of Cole and Dylan Sprouse who star in Disney’s hit show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, has been convicted of child molestation.
Child star manager Josh Werkman has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor child molestation and misdemeanor sale of alcoholic beverage to a minor.
Werkman entered his plea in on Friday in Ventura County Superior Court. He will be sentenced on April 2.
This story just makes you sick on so many levels. The alleged victim is apparently a 16 year old boy, this agent is very well known, and is trusted to work with Disney. Lou Pearlman, the boy band creator of N*Sync and the Backstreet boys, is cutting a deal to save his molesting ass and you can imagine Josh will pull the same thing. Parents need to be with their kids around these predators who only know as someone looking to profit from your kid.
