According to reports, actor Joshua Jay Carrizales appeared in court this week to deal with the crime accusations.
A Grand Blanc Township actor who has been in projects with Val Kilmer and rapper 50 Cent has been arraigned after authorities allege he sexually assaulted a child. Joshua Jay Carrizales, 42, was arraigned Thursday, July 17, by Flint District Judge Tracy Collier-Nix on four charges of second-degree criminal sexual conduct of a victim under 13. The charges carry a sentence of up to 15 years in prison. (MLive)
Reports also claim multiple sexual assault incidents may have taken place.
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton’s office said charges were issued against Carrizales after the alleged victim came forward to police in 2013. Prosecutors say the charges stem from three separate incidents that allegedly happened between November 2010 and May 2011. A warrant was issued for Carrizales in June 2014. Records show he was arrested in Barry County, and was transferred to Genesee County Wednesday, July 16. (MLive)
Recently, 50 Cent expressed an interest in doing something with an upcoming Star Wars film.
That’s because Fif wants to play a “bad guy” in an upcoming Marvel superhero film, but “the kind you start to like,” he told MTV News recently, giving a bit of a description of his musical career, as well. “Because we all have a streak of a rebel in us, so you find yourself rooting for the bad guy at some point,” he said. “The Joker was that in ‘Batman.'” Beyond that, he wants to play himself — in “Star Wars.” “There’s so many good roles to play in ‘Star Wars,’ they can just let me walk by in the back,” he joked.

The rap star will appear in an upcoming star-studded flick set to come out later this summer.
Those projects are all a little ways down the line. What’s not, though, is “The Prince,” which the Queens rapper is appearing in alongside Bruce Willis, Jason Patric and John Cusack. A trailer for the film, which hits theaters on August 22, was released on Friday (June 27). (MTV)
