Dascha Polanco Facing Assault Charges
She appeared in court on four accounts of assault and harassment, E! Online reports.
The case involves a 17-year-old girl named Michelle Cardona, who accused Polanco of scratching up her arms and pulling her hair, according to Page Six.
Her lawyer Gerald Lefcourt defends the 33-year-old actress saying this is all a plot to get money.
‘We expect the case to be dismissed,’ he told People.
This is an ironic case, given the actress plays a woman in jail on the small screen.
If the claims are false, we hope she won’t be getting locked up in real life.
