Danny Masterson has lastly been sentenced, months after he was convicted on 2 rape counts, to 30 years behind bars.
The “That ’70s Present” star was sentenced Thursday to 30 years in a Los Angeles courtroom. He was dealing with 30 years to life after being discovered responsible on 2 of his 3 counts … so the sentence is not all that shocking.
As we reported, he was convicted on the two counts in Might, however the jury was held on the third rely. He was first charged again in 2020, with the three ladies saying the incidents went down between 2001 and 2003 — as he was engaged on his comedy sequence.
Bear in mind, Masterson had a trial final October, but it surely led to a mistrial a month later after the jury was unable to succeed in a call. The actor’s group tried to get it dismissed, however he was finally retried and convicted.
His lawyer, Philip Cohen, informed us after Masterson’s mistrial that the case was “about nothing aside from the credibility of the three accusers and that credibility might solely be decided by evaluating, contrasting and specializing in the ever-evolving statements given by the ladies.”
After being discovered responsible, we discovered Masterson wasn’t put in lockup with the overall inhabitants on the L.A. County Males’s Central Jail — the place he is been awaiting his sentence — however as an alternative was in “administrative segregation” … the place high-profile inmates like O.J. Simpson and Suge Knight have stayed prior to now.
