In a stunning announcement, the LA district attorney revealed charges against ‘That 70’s Show’ star Danny Masterson for allegedly raping three women. As TMZ reports:
“That 70’s Show” star Danny Masterson has been charged with rape — this after being accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct and assault over the years.
The charges against Danny were announced Wednesday by Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, who says her office has charged the actor with three counts of felony forcible rape involving three different women … all of whom are being identified as Jane Does.
The alleged rapes — according to the D.A. — occurred between 2001 and late 2003 … right in the middle of the sitcom’s run.
Danny’s attorney, Tom Mesereau, tells TMZ … “Mr. Masterson is innocent, and we’re confident that he will be exonerated when all the evidence finally comes to light and witnesses have the opportunity to testify.”
If Masterson is convicted on all charges he faces up to 45 years behind bars.
