Actor Danny Masterson Transferred to State Prison Following Rape Conviction

Danny Masterson, known for That ’70s Show, has been moved to North Kern State Prison after being convicted of raping two women. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation confirmed his admission on Wednesday, sharing a mugshot of Masterson in an orange jumpsuit.

Previously held at Los Angeles County jail, Masterson received a 30-year to life sentence in September and was deemed a potential flight risk. The actor faced two rape charges stemming from a 2020 case involving three women assaulted between 2001 and 2003. A mistrial was declared in late 2022 before his eventual conviction in May.

Post-sentencing, Masterson’s defense expressed intent to appeal. Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón commended the victims for their courage and stated, “Justice was finally served,” emphasizing the survivors’ resilience against abuse and a system that may not always support them.

Gascón thanked the trial team, pledging to end the Hollywood elite exploiting Los Angeles. In the same period, Bijou Phillips, Masterson’s former wife, filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Masterson, unexpectedly found guilty, relinquished full legal and physical custody of their daughter Fianna to Phillips, seeking visitation rights.
