Justice Being Served.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has charged Daniel ‘Danny’ Masterson with raping three women by force or fear. The actor, who played Steven Hyde on That 70’s Show and previously starred in the Netflix series The Ranch, faces a possible sentence of 45 years to life in state prison.
He is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman between January and December 2001, a 28-year-old woman in April 2003, and another 23-year-old woman between October and December 2003.
The District Attorney’s Office stated that it declined to file sexual assault charges against the actor in two other investigations, one for insufficient evidence and the other because of a statute of limitations issue.
According to jail records, Masterson was arrested Wednesday at 11:30 a.m, his bond was set at $3.3 million, and he was bonded out at 2:44 p.m the same day.
The LAPD originally began investigating Masterson in early 2017. Arraignment is scheduled for September 18 in downtown Los Angeles.
