    13 Disney Channel Stars You Didn't Know Were On Crime Shows

    They portrayed murderers, rapists, prostitutes, and victims. It sheds that "good kid" image, lemme tell ya. *Episode spoilers ahead*

    1. Hilary Duff, Lizzie McGuire

    NBC

    Lizzie McGuire guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU as a mother who supposedly killed her infant. This episode obviously stood in for the Casey Anthony case. Turns out her kid had measles, but she was still a crappy mother.

    2. Jake Thomas, Lizzie McGuire

    CBS

    Lizzie's younger brother Matt switched from harmless pranks to rape. He guest starred on an episode of Criminal Minds as a member of a trio who kidnap, chase, rape, and murder women. To be fair, he didn't know one of his accomplices went rogue and killed them, but still. He ends up beaten to death with a baseball bat because karma's a bitch.

    3. Raviv (Ricky) Ullman, Phil of the Future

    NBC

    Yep, the lovable boy from the 22nd century guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU. His character raped an unconscious girl to impress a radio shock-jock.

    4. Kay Panabaker, Phil of the Future

    NBC

    Debbie went from being annoying as hell to a rape victim on an episode of Law and Order: SVU. Her character goes to New York and shacks up with this homeboy. Soon after, he pimps her out to all these rich, skeevy dudes. Charming, right?

    5. Nick Spano, Even Stevens

    CBS

    Donnie, the hilariously dimwitted older brother, guest starred on an episode of NCIS. His character is accused of stalking an ex-girlfriend, and is murdered later. Turns out, he was part of a group who stole $4 million. Oh, and he was a freakin' Marine.

    6. Twitty, Even Stevens

    FOX

    Twitty guest starred on an episode of Bones as a guitarist in a black metal band. He choked a former band member to death with barbed wire. His character's name? Pinworm. (Wish I were kidding.)

    7. Margo Harshman, Even Stevens

    CBS

    Louis' friend/love interest snagged a recurring role on NCIS. She played Timothy McGee's girlfriend who gets hit with shrapnel after an aerial drone attack. Turns out, she became paralyzed after shrapnel severed her spinal cord. Welp, that blows.

    Fun fact: Timothy McGee (played by Sean Murray) was Thackery Binx in Hocus Pocus.

    8. David Henrie, Wizards of Waverly Place

    CBS

    The older brother guest starred on an episode of Cold Case. He played a punk-ass kid who shoots an 8-year-old girl point blank because she knew his dad beat him. (In his eyes, she and her friend were causing him grief, and he took out his insecurities on them.) Set in 1975, the episode deals with racism. Ironically, it has a semi-happy ending.

    9. Jake T. Austin, Wizards of Waverly Place

    NBC

    The younger brother guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU. Although his character did nothing illegal, his girlfriend helped murder her parents because her dad raped her. Her going to prison will probably put a damper on that relationship.

    10. Jennifer Stone, Wizards of Waverly Place

    ABC

    Harper Finkle guest starred on one bat-shit crazy Exorcist-style episode of Body of Proof. Basically, her character poisoned her sisters with PCP because she wanted Daddy all to herself. When things go south, she tries committing suicide, but the gun misfires.

    11. Lee Thompson Young, The Famous Jett Jackson

    CBS

    Jett Jackson guest starred on an episode of CSI: NY. His character is murdered by drug dealers, although he wasn't an addict. He was a good guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Bonus: Young played a series regular on Rizzoli & Isles from 2010 until his unfortunate passing in 2013. RIP.

    12. Eric von Detten, Brink!

    NBC

    This soul skater guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU. His character had been accused of rape by two different women, and is arrested for killing one of them. His grandmother tells the cops he did it because of his abusive father, but PLOT TWIST, she actually was the criminal mastermind involved in making her grandson a monster.

    13. Kirsten Storms, Zenon trilogy

    CBS

    Zetus Lapetus! Zenon Kar guest starred on an episode of CSI: Miami. Her character hung out with this dude who shot an officer. (Get some better friends, girl.) Turns out, she shot the cop. Say it ain't so, Zenon.
