This star of the 70s show Danny Masterson was recently convicted of two counts of rape, and as he awaits sentencing, TMZ reported where the actor will reside in jail.
According to a recent report, Masterson will not be held in the general population of LA County Men’s Central Jail. Instead, Masterson will be kept in “administrative segregation,” a unit where other inmates like Suge Knight and OJ Simpson have been placed following arrests and convictions.
TMZ went on to note that Masterson will be allowed out of his cell for 2 hours a day and will have access to the prison library, but will not have a television. He will also get 3 hours of leisure per week and will be able to shower every other day (or every day if he is in court) before his next court appearance on August 4, 2023.
Danny Masterson faces 30 years in prison after being found guilty of two counts of ‘forced rape’ of two Jane Does, although the jury did not reach a unanimous verdict.
Per Deadline, the foreman of the jury described the panel to those in the courtroom as ‘hopelessly deadlocked’ on the third count, with the last count being eight guilty and four not. guilty. This is reminiscent of Masterson’s original trial, which was declared a mistrial due to the jury deadlocked on a verdict.
The actor was handcuffed and taken into custody after the verdict was read, with the next hearing in the case set for August 4. The outlet described the actor as “expressionless” when the verdict was read.
Masterson was arrested in 2020 for the alleged assaults and faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted on all three counts. The verdict comes after the retrial began on April 24 and ended on May 12.
