Shortly after they cops found the 2 brothers, the producers said his character will be written off. This is also prior to the video of them buying the supplies. So I think the producers didn't want him back because it would open a can of worms. I never watched the show so IDK how important he was to the story line.
He is still maintaining his story, but I think the atty is being looked into. IIRC, he hired Avenatie's atty also. Who was also busted.
I don't watch, but I read his character was married and went off on a long honeymoon. So, not permanently written out of the story. He can be "absent" until the show decides whether they want him back.
