On the 2nd of July 2019, he was found guilty of one of the charges levelled against him, and he had already spent time in jail which made up for the duration of the sentence, his second punishment was a demotion.

Throughout the case, Andrea maintained that her husband was innocent and made sure the world knew his side of the story. She spearheaded the #FreeEddie campaign on Twitter, had her friends help her and solicited for crowdfunding to pay her husband’s legal fees.
