RAINN Applauds 30-Year-to-Life Sentence for Danny Masterson

 

Washington, D.C. (September 7, 2023) – RAINN released the following statement after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge sentenced Danny Masterson to 30 years to life today after Masterson was found guilty of two counts of rape in May 2023: “The victim-impact statements were incredibly powerful and we applaud the strong sentence handed down by Judge Olmedo,” said Scott Berkowitz, RAINN president and founder. “We are hopeful that today’s sentence sends a message that justice is possible and that our system can hold perpetrators, including those who are powerful in Hollywood, accountable. To anyone following coverage of these cases and looking for support, RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Hotline is ready with free, confidential, and 24/7 support at 800.656.HOPE (4673) and online.RAINN.org.”
