but did not immediately hear back.
The actress stood publicly by the actor’s side
throughout his trial and retrial.

They were together for more than a decade
after getting married in 2011
and welcoming their only daughter in 2014.
On September 7th.
NBC News reported
that the That’s 70s Show star was sentenced
to 15 years to life in prison on each of two rape charges.
The judge reportedly ordered the star
to serve the terms consecutively.
It followed the former sitcom star’s trial in May.
during which a jury found him guilty of raping two women
at his Hollywood Hills home from 2001 to 2003.
during the time he starred on his popular show.
The jury was hung on a third count.

The May trial was the second time
that the prosecution’s case against Masterson
was presented to a jury.
Back in November of 2022.
a mistrial was declared after the jury
was unable to come to unanimous decisions
for all three charges of forcible rape
that Masterson was facing.
In response to the sentencing news on September 7th.
the Los Angeles district attorney told E! News
in a statement.
this has been a long and arduous road
for the victims of Mr.
Masterson.
They not only survived his abuse.
they also survived a system
that is often not kind to victims.
After he was first charged.
the actor pleaded not guilty to all three counts
and maintained his innocence throughout both trials.
E! News has reached out to Danny’s attorney for comment
and has not yet heard back.
