Their Attorneys Speak Up

Steven’s attorney issued a statement, and said that the 15-year-old was “victimized” by the other two adults. He accused Jose and Keelan of preying on his star status.

Keelan’s attorney told TMZ that he had zero involvement at all with the incident. The attorney said that he tried to provide authorities with some evidence that Keelan has not even present during the alleged acts – but the detective proceeded anyway.

The police are still looking for more victims.
