Danny Masterson Will Stand Trial for Rape

A judge has ruled that rape allegations against actor, Danny Masterson should go on to trial

A Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge, Charlaine F. Olmedo ruled on Friday, May 21 that the ‘That ’70s Show,’ actor will stand trial on three counts of rape by force or fear.

If convicted, Danny Masterson, a practising scientologist could face up to 45 years in prison.

Three women had testified that the American actor raped them almost 2 decades ago, in an emotional testimony.

Judge Charlaine said she found the women’s testimony credible for the purposes of the preliminary hearing, where the bar for sufficient evidence is significantly lower than it will be at the forthcoming trial.

Masterson has pleaded not guilty with his lawyers saying they would prove his innocence.

The lawyers said the age of the incidents, which date from 2001 and 2003, made accurate memories impossible

“Memories fade and memories change,” Masterson’s attorney, Sharon Appelbaum said.

During the hearing, they repeatedly challenged the women on discrepancies in stories. They suggested that the prosecution was tainted by anti-religious bias against the Church of Scientology.
