What did Danny Masterson do?

Danny Masterson was accused of r*pe by two women, and the incident took place in the early 2000s. It was stated by the victims that they were asked not to report against a member of the Church of Scientology, but they refused to back down.

The women stated that Masterson had spiked their drinks with a substance that caused them to feel nauseated. One of the victims, Jen B., stated that after spiking her drink, Masterson brought her home and raped her while having a gun and suffocating her using a pillow.

The second victim, N. Trout, described him spiking her drink and r*ping her while she was in the shower. Another victim, who was one of his ex-girlfriends, Chrissie B., stated that he was abusive and that he used to force himself on her. In one such incident, when she said no, he pinned her down on the floor and raped her.

Why is the That 70’s Show star going to jail?

The That 70’s Show star is going to jail because he has been convicted on two charges of r*pe and is being sentenced to 30 years to life in prison.

He was accused of r*ping three women, but now he has been convicted of r*ping two women, and he has been granted a sentence of 15 years each for raping the two women. Judge Charlaine Olmedo, who sentenced Danny, stated, “Mr. Masterson, you are not the victim here. Your actions 20 years ago took away another person’s voice and choice. Your actions 20 years ago were criminal, and that is why you are here.”

Danny will have to serve both terms for 15 years consecutively. Throughout the trial, Masterson’s attorneys tried to defend him, stating his role for another and the amount of community service work done by him.

But the judge refused to take all that into account and sentenced him to prison. Masterson refused to comment on anything during the hearing, but the victims strongly came out and expressed the torture and trauma that they suffered due to his actions.
