We look at celebrities as role models, but many famous people have been accused of horrible crimes. Some of these famous folks found themselves on the wrong side of the law when they were young, while others got into trouble later in life. This list of celebrities accused of horrible crimes has been loosely ranked by fame and popularity. 

Who is the most famous person who has been accused of a horrible crime? Mean Girls actress Lindsay Lohan has quite a long rap sheet. She was charged with felony grand theft in 2011 and felony drug charges in 2007. She has spent time in the Los Angeles County Jail on three separate occasions. Snoop Dogg has been charged with drug possession five times. He was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm in 2006. He was also charged with murder in 1993, but he was acquitted in 1996.

Mark Wahlberg was charged with attempted murder in 1987 after he beat two different men, leaving one blind in one eye. He pleaded guilty to assault and served 45 days at Boston's Deer Island House of Correction. Rapper Tupac Shakur served 30 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to assaulting a man with a baseball bat in 1993. He was also convicted of sexual battery in 1993, after a woman claimed that she was raped by Shakur and his entourage. He said that he was innocent and that he had consensual sex with the woman.

In May 2016, actress Amber Heard filed for a divorce and restraining order from actor Johnny Depp. Heard alleged that Depp physically and emotionally abused her throughout the entirety of their brief marriage.

The two have been in-and-out of divorce proceedings for several months, but have recently come to a settlement. Heard received $7 million from Depp, which she then donated the entirety of to charity.

Orange Is the New Black star Taryn Manning was accused of attacking her longtime makeup artist, Holly Hartman, on several occasions. Hartman claims that Manning headbutted her, sprayed Windex in her eyes and mouth, and whipped her with a wet towel. In the same outburst, Manning dared Hartman to stab her, yelling, "Pick a knife. Iā€™m wearing a white shirt ā€” there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning.ā€

Ultimately, the restraining order was not granted on a technicality - Hartman filed it in California even though the attacks took place in NYC. Manning's legal team said the accusations were false, and that Hartman was actually under investigation for stalking Manning.

In August 2015, Subway spokesman Jared Fogle pleaded guilty to having sex with minors (two teenage girls) and obtaining child pornography.

On Monday August 17, 2015 actor Emile Hirsch pleaded guilty to assaulting a female employee of a Paramount Pictures subsidiary. Hirsch placed the female studio executive in a choke-hold and body-slammed her at a Sundace Film Festival event that happened earlier this year. Two people pulled Emile off of Daniele Bernfeld (the victim) while she was being attacked. Because the actor was intoxicated and doesn't remember the event occurring, there is still no idea of what prompted the attack. Regardless of this, Hirsch will serve 15 days in jail. In addition to this, he will need to complete 50 hours of community service and pay a fine of $4,750.
