A verdict has been reached in the retrial for the rape of ‘That 70s Show’ star Danny Masterson, with the jury finding the actor guilty on most of the three counts.
meeting has reported that Danny Masterson faces 30 years in prison for being found guilty of two counts of “violently raping” two Jane Dos, despite the jury’s failure to reach a unanimous verdict.
The jury described the panel to those in the courtroom as “hopelessly stuck” 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.
