Josh Werkman who manages the careers of children has pleaded no contest to a charge of child molestation and a charge of selling of alcohol to a minor. Werkman’s plea was entered this week in Los Angeles Superior Court. He will be sentenced on April 2.
The theatrical manager controls the careers of Cole and Dylan Sprouse who star in the the Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” The Sprouses were NOT mentioned as being a party to this case. Merimark Entertainment produces the series and Werkman has also produced the Sprouse twins’ two latest screen releases.

Law enforcement says Werkman was initially arrested for felony sexual battery by restraint. Sources say the alleged victim is a 16-year-old male. Werkman’s lawyer, Steve Cron, says “Josh admitted he annoyed an individual who is a minor and provided that person with alcohol on the day in question. He acknowledged that he used bad judgment on that occasion and that is why he pleaded no contest to the two charges.
