Hollywood publicist Bradley Frank has pleaded no contest to one count of felony grand theft stemming from his departure last year from Platform Public Relations, which had accused him of copying sensitive database files and deleting others when he resigned after more than five years at the firm.
In exchange for his no-contest plea, prosecutors dropped charges of computer fraud and receiving stolen property. Frank, who is currently employed at Rogers & Cowan, was also ordered to pay $1,000 restitution to Platform owner Siri Garber and will serve a year of probation, after which the theft charge reverts to a misdemeanor.
Charging documents alleged that Frank took money and personal property of a value exceeding $400. Frank had no immediate comment.
His current client roster includes Old Spice commercial and YouTube sensation Isaiah Mustafa and “Californication” star Meagan Good.
