As of today, Danny Masterson knows what his future looks like because he will spend the next 30 years in prison.

News just broke that Danny Masterson has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for raping two women at his Los Angeles home in the early 2000s.

And honestly, good.

Now, if you don’t know who he is, he is famous for his role in That 70’s Show and The Ranch prior to the allegations against him in this case.

According to reports, Judge Charlaine Olmedo announced her decision for sentencing following emotional statements from his victims and “verbally dismantled Masterson’s defense,” according to legal journalist Meghann Cuniff.

“Mr. Masterson, you are not the victim here. Your actions 20 years ago took away another person’s choice and voice. Your actions 20 years ago today were criminal, and that’s why you are here,”

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want this to turn out to be true. I mean, I will never understand why men with his celebrity status and of course, money would have any desire/want/need to force themselves on a woman.

But here’s the thing – there must be enough evidence to prove that he did it and for that, he deserves prison time. And that was exactly what Judge Olemdo said in court:

“You were not convicted on the testimony of one person,”

“You were not convicted based on rumors, innuendo, gossip and speculation,”

“You were convicted based on evidence that 12 people in the community found to be credible. … You were convicted because each of the victims reported the rapes to someone shortly after the rapes occurred.”

Now, of course, Danny denies these allegations and apparently he and his attorney plan to appeal the sentence.
