Actor from ‘That ’70s Show’ Found Guilty of Rape: Faces Potential Life Sentence!

An actor known for his role in the popular sitcom “That ’70s Show,” Danny Masterson, has been convicted of two counts of rape and could potentially face a life sentence. The trial centered around allegations made by three women who accused Masterson of sexually assaulting them in the early 2000s. The actor, who pleaded not guilty, was found guilty on both counts.

The case drew significant attention due to Masterson’s prominence in the entertainment industry and the #MeToo movement’s ongoing efforts to bring accountability to those accused of sexual misconduct. The verdict is seen as a significant victory for the movement, as high-profile convictions of celebrities accused of sexual assault have been relatively rare.

Masterson, who portrayed Steven Hyde on “That ’70s Show,” a popular television series that aired from 1998 to 2006, faces a potential sentence of 45 years to life in prison. His attorney plans to appeal the verdict, maintaining his client’s innocence and criticizing the credibility of the accusers.

The conviction of Masterson underscores the growing cultural shift towards taking allegations of sexual assault seriously and holding individuals accountable for their actions, regardless of their status or profession. It serves as a reminder that the legal system continues to evolve to address these sensitive issues and provide justice for survivors of sexual violence.
