Danny Masterson charged with rape
Former 'That 70s Show' actor Danny Masterson has been charged with three counts of rape, but two other allegations were not pursued.
Danny Masterson has been accused of three checks of assault.
The previous 'That 70s Show' on-screen character has been under scrutiny since 2016 and on Wednesday (06.17.20) he was captured by the LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division more than three offenses, which purportedly occurred somewhere in the range of 2001 and 2003.
The 44-year-old on-screen character - who faces as long as 45 years in prison whenever sentenced - has demanded he is honest and promised to battle the charges.
His legal counselor, Tom Mesereau, said in an announcement: "Mr. Masterson is guiltless, and we're certain that he will be absolved when all the proof at last becomes exposed and witnesses have the chance to affirm.
"Clearly, Mr. Masterson and his significant other are in finished stun thinking about that these almost 20-year old claims are out of nowhere bringing about charges being recorded, yet they and their family are support realizing that at last reality will come out.
"The individuals who know Mr. Masterson know his character and realize the charges to be bogus."
The 'Farm' on-screen character has been blamed for assaulting a 23-year-elderly person some time in 2001, while the subsequent charge identifies with a supposed assault on a 28-year-old female in April 2003.
The third charge dates among October and December 2003 and claims Masterson assaulted a 23-year-elderly person at his Hollywood Hills home.
The District Attorney's office additionally reported they had ruled against recording two different charges.
The first, where a lady asserted she'd been over and again assaulted by the on-screen character while living with him in 2002, wasn't sought after because of lacking proof, while the second, a case that Masterson had assaulted a lady twice in August and September 1996, was declined because of the legal time limit.
In August 2019, four ladies documented a claim against Masterson and the Church of Scientology, where they affirmed they were pestered and followed in reprisal for heading off to the police with their assault guarantees about the entertainer.
At that point, Masterson - who has six-year-old little girl Fianna with spouse Bijou Phillips - said he was being "railroaded" and pledged to go to court and sue those "who got on board with the fleeting trend for the harm they caused me and my family".
The entertainer, who has been discharged on $3.3 million bail, will show up in court for an arraignment hearing on 18 September.
