Danny Masterson Charged With ‘Forcibly Raping’ 3 Women: ‘That ’70s Show’ Star Facing ’45 Years To Life’ In Prison
Danny Masterson faces life in prison for raping three women between 2001 and 2003, the Los Angeles District Attorney confirms.
That ’70s Show star Danny Masterson, 44, has been charged with three counts of rape “by force or fear.” The incidents occurred between 2001 and 2003, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office confirmed in a statement on Wednesday, June 17 obtained by HollywoodLife. Danny faces up to 45 years to life in state prison if convicted, the statement confirms.
The case was filed for warrant on Wednesday, June 17 and arraignment is scheduled for September 18 at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in downtown Los Angeles. Danny — who has also appeared in The Ranch and Men At Work — is accused of allegedly raping a 28 year old woman in April 2003, a 23-year-old woman between January and December 2001, as well as as 23-year-old between October and December of 2003. The Deputy District Attorney has confirmed that all cases occurred at Masterson’s Hollywood Hills home.
The Los Angeles District Attorney noted in the statement that they were not filing charges in two other cases due to statue of limitations in one case, and insufficient evidence in the next. Danny has been under investigation since 2014, and was let go from his Netflix series The Ranch in Dec. 2017 during the Me Too movement.
HollywoodLife has reached out to Danny’s attorney Tom Mesereau for comment, but has not received a reply as of publishing time.
