It is looking more likely by the day that the actor/accused serial rapist is going to have to go into one of his secret accounts and come up with actual cash if he wants to stay out of jail and on bond.
Leah Remini attends Danny Masterson’s arraignment on rape charges to support accusers
Danny Masterson appeared in court on Friday to be arraigned on rape charges. The 44-year-old actor’s lawyer filed a demurrer so he didn’t have to enter a plea — yet. Masterson has been free on bail since his June arrest. The next hearing is set for October.
Masterson is accused of raping three women between 2001 and 2003. If convicted, he faces a possible maximum sentence of 45 years to life in state prison. According to the Chicago Tribune, Masterson’s criminal defense attorney, Tom Mesereau, maintained his client’s innocence.
“There have been repeated attempts to politicize this case,” said Mesereau, who also represented Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson in their sexual misconduct cases. “He is absolutely not guilty and we’re going to prove it.”
Leah Remini was at the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles lending her support to Masterson’s three accusers, who were also in attendance. The three alleged victims were members of the Church of Scientology, which Masterson has belonged. They, along with a fourth woman, filed a civil lawsuit against the That ‘70s Show star and the church. The women claim the church tried to silence them. Both Masterson and the Church of Scientology have denied the accusations and the lawsuit remains unresolved. Remini famously left the church in 2013. – Source
