Ex-Red Power Rangers Actor Pleads Guilty To Killing Roommate, With A Sword!

Ricardo Medina, who played the Red Power Ranger in the Power Rangers Wild Force and Deker in Power Rangers Samurai, was originally accused in 2016 for killing his roommate Josh Sutter — with a sword, no less — to which Medina claimed he was not involved with. At that time he faced 26 years for murder on the initial charges.

Well, apparently his story has changed, and fear not because our justice system “works,” as he has now pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter. According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney he will face “one felony count of voluntary manslaughter and admitted an allegation of using a sword in the killing.” In California, one can receive 3, 6, or 11 years if found guilty of this crime, and upon much research I could find no information if early parole is possible. It is reported he will receive 6 years. We have no idea what happened in this situation, or what provoked the actor, but you can check the penal codes here for more information and examples of situations that could define manslaughter.

In Power Rangers Wild Force he starred in 40 episodes, and in Power Rangers Samurai he was in 24 episodes, to which many long time fans claim his character Deker was one of their favorite all-time characters. He also acted in an episode of ER and CSI: Miami.

“Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.”

The new Power Rangers movie will star Naomi Scott (Kimberly/Pink Ranger), Becky G. (Trini/Yellow Ranger), RJ Cyler (Billy Cranston/Blue Ranger), Ludi Lin (Zack Taylor/Black Ranger), and Dacre Montgomery (Jason Lee Scott/Red Ranger) and Bryan Cranston (Zordon) with Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.

Power Rangers drops on March 24 of this year!
