Actor Danny Masterson, best known for his role in The 70s Show, has been charged with three rapes, said Los Angeles County Attorney Jackie Lacy on Wednesday.
Masterson was arrested on Wednesday, released a bail of $ 3.3 million a few hours later, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The actor is charged with the brutal rape of three women in separate incidents that occurred between 2001 and 2003. All alleged crimes occurred at Masterson’s house in the Hollywood Hills.
Masterson’s lawyer Tom Mesero says the performer does not admit his guilt. “Masterson and his wife are in complete shock, given that these almost 20-year-old accusations suddenly led to the indictment,” Mesero notes.
If convicted, Masterson may be sentenced from 45 years to life in prison.
