"America's Got Talent" Contestant Joe Finley Due In Los Angeles Court

November 17, 2010 By:

AGT contestant Joe Finley will appear in court tomorrow morning to face charges that he illegally possessed ecstasy on the morning of his audition.

Hollyscoop has learned that Mr. Finley has retained counsel, high profile Los Angeles litigator Sean Macias and well-known criminal defense attorney Nareg Gourjian, to represent him in this matter.

Both lawyers were spotted this week at the Biltmore Hotel – the hotel where Mr. Finley’s wife was found dead on the morning of his audition.

While tomorrow’s court appearance is for Mr. Finley’s drug possession, sources tell Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY that he is still considered a ‘person of interest’ in his wife’s death. Mr. Finley however has adamantly denied any involvement. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
