Both men denied the allegations.

The father was released on $30,000 bail and is to make his next court appearance on December 11, before Magistrate Judy Latchman.

Griffith Jr’s matter was transferred to the courtroom of Magistrate Dylon Bess, where he offered the complainant $10,000 compensation, which Vallet accepted. The charge was subsequently dismissed.
