The 47-year-old actor was arrested at his LA on April 6 after LYPD served a search warrant at his home.
A tip off to police was given that detailed Gatt was engaging in sexually explicit communication with a minor online. Joseph had an outstanding felony warrant for contact with a minor for sexual offences which he was taken into custody for after his arrest.
He was released on the same day with a $5,000 bail.
In a tweet, Gatt addressed the arrest and allegations made against him saying, “I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and completely untrue allegations recently levelled against me. They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless. I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release.
I am fully cooperating with police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this. I look forward to clearing my good name. Thank you to all of my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media.”
