How the Church of Scientology Went After Danny Mastersons Rape Accusers - 2018-07-08
Ortega's bombshell story referenced a Victim B, who filed a report with the LAPD in 2004 claiming that Masterson sexually assaulted her in 2003. A copy of Victim B's report alleges that, "The victim woke up while the suspect was having sex with her and struggled with him. The suspect choked the victim until she passed out." Masterson has vehemently denied the allegations.
While Masterson was eventually fired from Netflix's The Ranch in response to the sexual-assault allegations and subsequent controversy, the case against him is ongoing. In a November 2017 report, Huffington Post's Yashar Ali wrote that the investigation "has inexplicably stalled." Citing five sources "inside and outside the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office," Ali reported that there were four accusers involved in the case, and that, "At least three of the women who have accused him of rape were also Scientologists and reported the incidents to the Church of Scientology at the time."
