Love After Lockup Maurice Gipson and Mandy arrested for theft and drugs
Ancient love after confinement Star Maurice Gipson has stayed out of trouble with the law since his shoplifting arrest just over a year ago. Maybe his newish boo Mandy finally got him on the right track? No.
Maurice and Mandy were arrested in California last week, and they both face numerous charges. According to Los Angeles County Jail records, Maurice and Mandy (real name Amanda Orr) were both arrested on Sunday, October 23 around 6:35 p.m. The address listed for the location of the arrest appears to be a Maurices clothing store. (Seriously.)
The arrest log indicates that the two were arrested in connection with a major robbery in progress. They were both charged with grand larceny, conspiracy and possession of a prescription drug for personal use.
Grand larceny is a felony “wobbler” in California and can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department website says Maurice and Mandy have been charged with crimes. My understanding is that the conspiracy charge level is equal to the crime the parties were conspiring to commit, so I’m guessing that’s a felony as well.
Given Maurice’s long criminal history, he could face a lot of time if convicted on the charges. From Kann California Law Group:
Grand Theft is punishable under the California “Three Strikes” system. If you are convicted of the crime, you can serve three years in state prison for a first offense and pay a $5,000 fine. If you get three “strikes” on your record, you will serve a minimum of twenty-five years in state prison.
Maurice was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and shoplifting. However, the shoplifting charge appears to stem from an outstanding warrant, so I’m guessing that means it’s related to Maurice’s arrest for shoplifting last year.
The total amount of Maurice’s bond was $30,000. Mandy’s total bail amount was $20,000. Maurice and Mandy posted bond and were released the day after their arrest.
Two other women were also charged along with Maurice and Amanda. They both face the same three charges as Mandy. One of the women was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. The other woman is listed as violating California law 22810(A)PC, which is possession of tear gas?

Are Maurice and Jessica divorced?
Maurice and Mandy have made numerous claims that they are married, but these claims appear to have been false. Jessica said a divorce is pending, but there is no record of a divorce filing in her county.
Jessica has yet to comment on Maurice’s latest arrest. Some sort of backlash seems inevitable given that Mandy has also been booked. Stay tuned!
