American actor Danny Masterson has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for raping two women. In 2003, three separate cases of rape of women were registered against Masterson.
In a hearing held in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday, the jury found the actor guilty of two counts. However, in the third case, the jury could not reach a conclusion.

Three women, former members of the Church of Scientology, accused actor Masterson of raping them between 2001 and 2003 at his Hollywood Hills home.
Masterson used to appear in TV shows then
Between 2001 and 2003, when Masterson committed these crimes, his TV show ‘That 70s Show’ used to be telecast. It was one of America’s famous TV shows in which famous Hollywood actors like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were also seen.
Apart from this show, Danny also did TV shows named ‘Men at Work’ and ‘The Ranch’. In 2011, Danny married actress and model Bijou Phillips. Both also have a daughter.

Wife was crying seeing Masterson in handcuffs
Earlier, after this case hearing in June 2023, the police took Danny Masterson into custody. His wife and actress Bijou Phillips, who was present in the court, cried seeing him in handcuffs.
While giving her reaction to the jury’s decision, one of the aggrieved women said, ‘I am feeling different emotions. Knowing that my abuser, Danny Masterson, will face the consequences of his misdeeds, I am both relieved and exhausted. I am sad and also feeling powerful.
These victims accused Danny Masterson of raping them after adulterating their drinks. At the same time, the actor’s lawyer had told the court that everything happened between the actor and the women with the consent of both.
