The star of the 70’s show Danny Masterson was recently convicted of two counts of rape and while awaiting sentencing, TMZ reported about where the actor will live in prison.
According to a recent report, Masterson is not being held in the general population of the LA County Men’s Central Jail. Instead, Masterson is being held in “administrative segregation,” a unit that housed other inmates such as Suge Knight and OJ Simpson after arrests and convictions.
TMZ went on to say that Masterson will be allowed out of his cell for two hours a day and will have access to the prison library but no television. He also gets three hours of time off every week and can shower every other day (or every day if he’s in court) before his next court date on August 4, 2023.
Danny Masterson faces 30 years in prison after being found guilty of two counts of “violently raping” two Jane Dos, though the jury didn’t reach a unanimous verdict.
Per meeting, the jury described to those in the courtroom as “hopelessly deadlocked” on the third count, with the last count finding eight guilty and four innocent. This is reminiscent of the original trial of Masterson, which was declared a mistrial because the jury had not yet reached a verdict.
The actor was handcuffed and taken into custody after the verdict was read. The next hearing on the matter was scheduled for August 4th. The outlet described the actor as “blank” when the verdict was read out.
Masterson was arrested in 2020 on the alleged assault and faces up to 45 years in prison if found guilty on all three counts. This verdict comes after the retrial began on April 24 and ended on May 12.
