Danny Masterson arraigned on rape charges, enters a not guilty plea - 2021-01-20
UPDATE: We were listening in this morning as Tom Mesereau entered a not guilty plea on behalf of his client Danny Masterson as the That '70s Show actor was arraigned at Los Angeles Superior Court. The case was then assigned to Judge Charlaine Olmedo to schedule a preliminary hearing in upcoming months.
As of this morning's posting time, two hearings regarding Scientology celebrity Danny Masterson are both scheduled to happen at the same time at Los Angeles Superior Court — one in the criminal court building, and another in civil court — and for the first time, we can listen in remotely.
Because of the Covid pandemic we've had a challenging time covering the rape case against Masterson and the civil lawsuit filed by his accusers. Our man on the scene, Jeffrey Augustine, has been prevented from attending some matters as the court asks people to stay home with the virus still so prevalent.
