Lawyer Denies Rape Charges Against ‘That 70s Show’s’ Danny Masterson

Defense lawyer Tom Mesereau, representing “That ’70s Show” actor Danny Masterson, pleaded not guilty on his behalf Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to the rapes of three women in the early 2000s, reports the Los Angeles Times.  Prosecutors have alleged that Masterson, 44, who has been free on bond since his June 17 arrest, raped a 23-year-old woman sometime in 2001, a 28-year-old woman in April of 2003 and a 23-year-old woman between October and December of 2003. All of the alleged rapes happened at his Hollywood Hills home.  Masterson’s arrest came after a three-year investigation that resulted in the rare prosecution of a famous Hollywood figure in the #MeToo era. Despite dozens of investigations, most have led to no charges based on lack of evidence or too much time having passed since the alleged sexual assaults.  Masterson could face up to 45 years in prison if convicted.
