What happened to Danny Masterson?
Masterson, best known for his role as Hyde on That ’70s Show, was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault by a Los Angeles jury.
He was accused of raping three women at his Hollywood Hills home between 2001 and 2003.
The women, who were all Scientologists, said that Masterson used his position in the church to pressure them into having sex with him.
Masterson denied the allegations, but he was arrested in 2019 and charged with three counts of rape by force or fear.
The trial lasted for six weeks, and the jury deliberated for four days before returning a guilty verdict.
Masterson was immediately taken into custody after the verdict was read.
His conviction is a major blow to the Church of Scientology, which has been accused of covering up sexual abuse allegations against its members.
The church has denied these allegations, but Masterson’s conviction is likely to increase scrutiny of the church’s handling of sexual abuse cases.

The next hearing on motions in the matter has been scheduled for August 4, 2023. A Sentencing hearing has not yet been set.
