What Happened to Danny Masterson; is He Innocent?
Following the news of what happened to Danny Masterson, three days after all of the emotional and dramatic testimony claimed by three women that 70s Show actor Danny Masterson raped them and assaulted them 20 years ago, Olmedo, the judge, decided on Friday that he must stand trial.
It’s been shared that Olmedo found that the women’s testimony credible for a preliminary hearing, where the bar for sufficient evidence is much lower than at trial.
The judge ordered Masterson to trial on three counts of rape by force or fear. The charges which are given to him could get him up to 45 years in prison.
During the hearing on May 20, Danny Thomas Mesereau, his attorney, repeatedly challenged a woman on the witness stand. He tried his best to challenge the women on discrepancies in their stories in the years that they mentioned they were assaulted sexually by Danny. His purpose was to determine whether Masterson should stand trial on three counts of rape. He has pleaded not guilty.
