Jackie Lacey insider: Unseat her in March if you want to see Danny Masterson charged - 2019-12-06
We first broke the news that Scientologist actor Danny Masterson was being investigated by the LAPD on the rape allegations of three women in March 2017. The women had actually come forward the previous autumn, and the LAPD forwarded the case for prosecution to the LA District Attorney's office in April 2017.
Two years later, after a fourth victim had come forward, and after Yashar Ali had written a story at Huffington Post saying his sources at the DA's office said the evidence against Masterson was "overwhelming," and after we had reported in February 2018 that the managers in the DA's office had signed off on charging Masterson under California's strict "one-strike law" for multiple sexual attacks and a possible life sentence, DA Jackie Lacey had still not said a word.
What was she waiting for? Earlier this year, we lucked into a source with key knowledge of the situation who explained to us what was going on.
