"Roiland has been charged with one felony count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit by the Orange County District Attorney’s office," Deadline report.

The woman involved is simply referred to as Jane Doe in the case, and the allegeations stem from a January 2020 incident, a complaint about which was made in MAy of that year.

Roiland pleaded not guilty to the charges in October 2020, and will attend a hearing in April. The case was sealed until January 12, and there is no trial date as yet.

An attorney for Roiland stated that he is innocent. "We also have every expectation that this matter is on course to be dismissed once the District Attorney’s office has completed its methodical review of the evidence," he said.
