Prison Sentence

Actor Danny Masterson has commenced his prison sentence in a California state penitentiary following his conviction for two counts of rape. Masterson, recognized for his role in the television series “That ’70s Show,” has been admitted to North Kern State Prison, where authorities have released his initial prison mug shot. In the photograph, Masterson is depicted donning standard orange prison attire, characterized by his long hair and beard.

This legal outcome transpired subsequent to Masterson’s conviction in June for the sexual assault of two women within his Los Angeles residence back in 2003. In September, a presiding judge imposed a sentence of 30 years to life imprisonment. The aftermath of this legal ordeal also saw the dissolution of his nearly 12-year marriage to actor Bijou Phillips, who filed for divorce in the ensuing weeks.

Throughout the intervening months leading to his prison term, Masterson was detained in Los Angeles County jail while post-sentencing hearings were conducted, and various logistical matters were addressed, such as the retrieval and documentation of all firearms owned by Masterson, a process that required some diligent effort.

It is important to note that Masterson will not be eligible for parole for a substantial period, with more than 25 years separating him from any potential parole consideration. In response to this verdict, Masterson’s legal team has announced their intention to appeal the conviction.
