I don't think it was "kids" specifically, he had to stay away from managing/coaching/anything talent for a while, and he has served his time and then was clear to do it again.
Otherwise, anyone should be able to step forward and let the court know he was violating his sentence. One would think.
That would be a very short time he stayed away, though.
I'm not sure about Nick Roses, but I've been signed with LBT theatrically for almost a year and I'm extremely happy with them. I go out pretty regularly for a variety of roles ranging from co-star to series regular roles and the team there (including Jackie) is very personable and responsive.
Just my 2 cents worth
Just bumping up this thread because I just received word directly from LBT that
NICK ROSES NO LONGER WORKS THERE.
He was there for 8 months and is now moving on to PANTHEON.
I will post this again in the kids' section just because I know people don't always read both forums.

How can a known scumbag continue to find jobs, now Pantheon? Their reputation now takes a hit. How can he be worth the hassle/stigma?
Damn, I just threw up on my keyboard.

Didn't change my view of LB Talent much. Good luck with that.
LB had issues from the get go.
Hey MommaBree - I wouldn't really put much faith in a company that would hire Nick after all that has gone on. Sure they got rid of him now but the fact that they hired him AFTER they knew about his problems is a little disturbing, don't you think? Jackie knew what was going on with him, she should have known better. Well, she did know better but choose to ignore the problem. Not a person or company that I would want my kid with. Just my nickel's worth.
I don't have any knowledge of the company other than what I've read. But in general there's no benefit in associating with shady characters. Interviewing with a shady person is different from interviewing with someone who's not, so you won't gain the experience you're looking for. And being new, you won't know the difference. More importantly, you don't want to put yourself in a position where you might be pressured to accept representation from a company that's not in your best interest. If they put on a good face and offer representation, the slope will become very, very slippery.
You will never be sorry for walking away from a person/company/project that feels shady to you. Once you accept that and act on it, other doors will open.
I don't see any harm in interviewing with Jackie for practice.
My 2 cents is - why would you EVER subject your child to an IMO unethical woman or company? There's no practice in the world that would make me do that! For me, it has no bearing on Nick Roses no longer being there, he was an employee, so I look at the people that hired him and they're still there! If you want your child to have experience in meetings then pay for a private class and have the teacher do interviews, different questions, scenarios, etc...but don't put him in front of people who you would not associate with. Would you let your child hang out with druggies just to gain experience on drugs? No you wouldn't...
Jackie has repp'd successful kids for years and isn't going to harm a kid in an interview. She makes some poor choices in associates and I don't agree with all her tactics, but she isn't an evil person and doesn't warrant a comparison to a druggie.
So be it. My words are never going to please 100% of the people 100% of the time so sorry if it offends. I wasn't comparing Jackie to a druggie. Again this is all opinion - and MY choice is I don't care if you've repped successful kids, it also has to do with those kids being successful given the opportunities - so I for one would still have NO desire to take that meeting. This forum isn't about having to agree with eachother, that was just my experience and opinion with the situation.
