Danny Masterson’s lawyer files objection to stall rape trial
Actor Danny Masterson’s lawyer called for a delay in the star’s rape case arraignment at a hearing in Los Angeles on Friday.
The former That ’70s Show actor, who faces up to 45 years behind bars if convicted on charges that were filed in June, turned up for the proceedings with a large posse of supporters and faced his alleged three victims.
He has been formally charged with the rape of the three women between 2001 and 2003.s
Masterson has denied the allegations and during the hearing, his lawyer, Thomas Mesereau filed an objection, claiming the rape charges against his client were politically motivated in part by Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s election, set to take place in November. The attorney hopes his motion will delay the arraignment until mid-October.
Reports suggest Danny will file a not guilty plea if the objection is denied by the court. He did not enter a plea in court on Friday.
“He is absolutely not guilty and we’re going to prove it,” Mesereau, who previously defended Michael Jackson against child molestation charges, said.- Source
