That 7O’s Show star Danny Masterson found guilty on two counts of rape at retrial

A Los Angeles jury has found former That ’70s Show actor Danny Masterson guilty on two counts of rape at his retrial.

The third count against Jane Doe 3 was declared a mistrial.

The actor and Scientologist pleaded not guilty to three counts of rape after three women came forward and claimed he raped them between 2001 and 2003.

In December, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge declared a mistrial because the jury was unable to reach a decision and deadlocked.

“While we are disappointed with the outcome of this trial, we thank the jury for their service,” prosecutors said in a statement. “We would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to the victims for standing up bravely and telling about their harrowing experiences.”

Masterson now faces up to 30 years to life imprisonment. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 4. He remains in custody.
