What Did EDP445 Do?

In 2020, YouTube punished EDP445 by stripping him of all his platforms after it was discovered that he had been messaging underage girls. The former YouTuber had multiple channels on the platform, with each focusing on various subjects like cooking, gaming, vlogs, and others. The news of his pedophilic tendencies came to the public light after a video was uploaded to a channel named ‘Chet Goldstein.’

The Chet Goldstein channel posted a video claiming that the YouTuber was having sexual conversations with minors and even making arrangements to meet with them. The channel was run by a YouTuber named Alex Rosen, who himself is known for highly controversial, and sometimes offensive videos.

His update on EDP445 was no different, and the video gathered over 2 million views in less than one month. Rosen was able to catch EDP445 by using a decoy. EDP445 allegedly sent sexual texts and pictures to someone who was only posing as a 13-year-old girl. While chatting with each other, the decoy drew EDP445 to Bakersfield in California, where he thought he would meet the underage girl.

The entire interaction between both men was live-streamed on YouTube. Everybody saw Rosen and another “predator hunter” named Ghost confront EDP445 for over an hour over his inappropriate conduct. In the end, both EDP445 and Chet Goldstein were taken off YouTube.

Rosen accused the platform of being unreasonably biased against his kind of content, saying, “we can’t post anything on YouTube anymore pretty much, that platform just doesn’t like us.” But while Rosen moved his content to his private website called Predator Poachers, EDP445, on the other hand, disappeared entirely from public view.

Was EDP445 Ever Charged?

There is currently no information about whether EDP445 was ever charged to court or not. Bryant Moreland had been accused of several misdemeanors, including messaging multiple minors in the past, tax evasion, child grooming, and pedophilia. From July 2020, he began to privatize his videos on YouTube. However, after about three days, all his channels were shut down.

This was the most severe punishment the YouTuber ever got, as his channels were heavily monetized and pulled in millions of views. An anonymous source stated that Bryant Moreland was arrested and detained in California on May 18, 2020. However, further digging revealed that his detention was for tax evasion and not because of the claims made by Chet Goldstein.

Still, rumors began circulating far and wide, stating that the then 29-year-old was being charged to court for talking to underage girls. Presently, in 2022, nobody knows for sure whether he was ever tried in court. From the look of things and judging from the available information at our disposal, EDP445 did not answer for his numerous crimes.

Was EDP445 Arrested?

Yes, the YouTuber was temporarily detained. However, the details of his arrest were not made available to the public. In June 2020, EDP445 was arrested for questioning on suspicion of child grooming and pedophilia. Shortly after, the Predator Poachers group, led by Alex Rosen, caught him on camera as he attempted to communicate with an underage girl.

Although there was nothing particularly incriminating in the video, no thorough investigations were ever carried out, especially as this wasn’t EDP445’s first pedophilia accusation. His arrest came after the police came under serious public fire for not acting quickly enough after the video went viral. While other authorities like YouTube and Reddit banned the vlogger from accessing all their platforms, the Californian police remained notoriously quiet.

According to an official press statement given by the Bakersfield Sheriff’s Department to ABC news on April 22, 2020, the disturbing video was still being investigated, but the police hadn’t made any arrests yet. Even after EDP445 was invited for questioning, his case never made it to court. The YouTuber was eventually released after paying an undisclosed bond fee. There are also no details about who bailed him.

Where Is EDP445 Now, Is He In Jail?

Before his career was destroyed by all his weighty scandals, EDP445 used to be highly popular in YouTuber spaces. He was particularly involved in American football and was a fanatical supporter of the Philadelphia Eagles. EDP445 created his first channel on June 13, 2012, and debuted a freestyle rap video. By February 2020, his YouTube channel had surpassed 1 million subscribers and counting.

Unfortunately for Bryant, it all came crashing down a few months later in June, after Predator Poachers caught him on camera. His channels were first privatized and then deleted altogether. He soon tried to move his videos to a YouTube backup channel called SomeOrdinaryGamers, but that channel was also shut down.

After the scandal had died down, Bryant never returned to social media. His YouTube was never restored, and he lost all access to the platform. He also can’t be found on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and Twitch and seems to have disappeared into thin air. While some members of the public seem to think he is in jail, there is plenty of information that seems to suggest otherwise.

EDP445 is not in prison and is still a free man. However, there is no further information on his whereabouts at the moment. His marital status, family members, and place of residence all remain unknown.
