Masterson was accused of raping three women but convicted of two felony counts of forcible rape in late May and sentenced to 30 years to life in prison in September. He is appealing his conviction.

Jurors in a Los Angeles courtroom found "That '70s Show" actor Danny Masterson guilty of two counts of rape on Wednesday and deadlocked on a third count.
