Taryn Manning's Lawyer Explains the Details Surrounding Her Arrest

Taryn Manning‘s lawyer has released a statement explaining everything that happened the night of her arrest.

News broke yesterday that the 36-year-old Orange is the New Black actress was arrested for making criminal threats against a former close friend. After many outlets published the information, Taryn fought back on her Twitter account, alleging that the information was not factual.

“The District Attorney declined to prosecute Ms. Manning and the arrest was voided,” her lawyer’s statement reads (via Popsugar). 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.”

The statement adds, “Ms. Manning is a law abiding person who has respect for the law and the privilege of her profession.”

“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.

Ms. Manning is a law abiding person who has respect for the law and the privilege of her profession. The fact that there are no criminal charges against Ms. Manning with regard to the purported allegations against her is a clear demonstration of her innocence.

Ms. Manning will as always maintain the high road. She wishes no contact from Ms. Heller and has had to spend great sums to hire security for her protection.”
