Danny Masterson sentenced to 30 years to life for two rapes

Hello,
and Korean.
Good afternoon.
Yeah,
we are waiting some reaction after learning Danny
Masterson was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted of those two rapes
earlier this year.
Masterson learning his fate just moments ago here at L.A.
Superior
Court.
Now,
the three women in this case told the judge that Masterson’s crimes had ruined
their lives and asked the judge to give the actor life behind bars according to the associated
press.
Masterson watched the women without any visible reaction during their comments.
One woman calling him pathetic,
disturbed and completely violent.
The victim saying,
when you raped me,
you stole from me.
Another telling the court the 47-year-old deserves
to be behind bars for the safety of other women,
and she wishes she’d gone to authority sooner.
Now,
prosecutors have said Masterson used his prominence in the Church of Scientology to
skirt any consequences for the attacks and the women have blamed the Church for not going to
authorities early on claiming the Church where they were also members warned them about going to
law enforcement to report a high-ranking member.
The Church has said the testimony and descriptions
of Scientology believe during the Masterson trial were,
quote,
uniformly false.
Masterson did not
testify at his own trial.
His lawyers also called no witnesses.
The defense had argued all along
that these acts were consensual.
Now,
back in May,
a jury found the actor guilty of those
two counts of rape.
The attacks took place at Masterson’s Hollywood home back in 2003 at the
height of his fame.
The women claim Masterson who starred in that 70s show from 2003 to 2006 gave
them drinks that made them woozy or pass out before he violently raped them.
Now,
this morning,
the defense had also asked for a new trial,
something the judge denied.
Again,
back here live
outside the court,
we are awaiting reaction,
following this sentencing and of course,
we’ll bring
it to you as soon as we get it.
We’ll send it back to you,
lo and Korean,
