LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawyer for a man under police investigation involving elder abuse of Marvel’s Stan Lee says his client has only had Lee’s best interest in mind.
In a related case, attorney Alex Kessel entered a not guilty plea Monday in Los Angeles for Keya Morgan, who is charged with calling 911 to report that authorities conducting a welfare check on the 95-year-old Lee were burglars.
Morgan, who says he is Lee’s longtime friend, became a personal adviser and manager of Lee’s affairs in recent months but has come under investigation for allegedly isolating Lee from family and friends.
A judge has granted a lawyer for Lee a temporary restraining order against Morgan.
Kessel says Morgan has only done what he believed best for Lee.
