‘That 70s Show’ actor Danny Masterson charged with raping 3 women

Actor Danny Masterson, who is best known for his role as Steven Hyde in the popular sitcom “That ’70s Show,” has been charged with raping three women at his California home nearly three decades ago, officials say.

Masterson is facing 3 counts of forcible rape, a felony, for the alleged rape of a 23-year-old woman in 2001, a 28-year-old woman in April 2003, and a 23-year-old woman who he had invited to his Hollywood Hills home in 2003.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said all of the crimes are alleged to have happened at the actor’s home. If convicted on all counts, 44-year-old Masterson could face a maximum sentence of 45 years to life in prison.

Prosecutors declined to file sexual assault charges in two other cases, one for insufficient evidence and the other based upon the statute of limitations for the crime alleged. Masterson is scheduled to appear in court on September 18.

Masterson has previously denied the allegations and said the encounters were consensual. He was fired from the Netflix show “The Ranch” when the allegations became public in 2017.
