'Aftermath' subject Brandon Reisdorf arrested for entering San Diego Scientology church - 2019-02-13
It pains us to report that Brandon Reisdorf, who we got to know from his appearance in the first season of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, has been arrested again, this time for attempting to enter Scientology's church in San Diego.
According to the San Diego Sheriff's Department, Brandon was arrested on Saturday evening, and he has been in the county jail since then, with a court date this morning at 8 am. His mother, Lois Reisdorf, asked us to speak with Brandon's attorney, Graham Berry, and Berry said he would speak to us as soon as he was able.
In the seventh episode of her first season Remini featured Brandon, whose parents Lois and Gary were deeply into Scientology in South Africa before drifting away from it. Brandon and his older brother Craig got into Scientology on their own, and Lois and Gary didn't interfere. But eventually because of their connection to a friend who had spoken out against the church, Lois and Gary were declared "suppressive persons," and all church members were ordered to disconnect from them. Brandon chose his parents and left the church, but Craig didn't.
