Danny Masterson made his very first look in a Los Angeles, Calif. courtroom on Friday, Sept. 18, 3 months after he was jailed on 3 counts of rape by force or worry.
The That 70s Show star came to the court house using a navy blue fit and a light colored face mask. He was signed up with by a big group of his advocates and his legal representative, Tom Mesereau.
In the hearing, his legal representative stated that L.A. District Attorney Jackie Lacey, who is up for re-election in Nov., just submitted the charges versus Masterson since of tremendous pressure from the media. Mesereau declared, “There have been repeated attempts to politicize this case… He is absolutely not guilty and we’re going to prove it.”
Deputy District Attorney Reinhold Mueller explained these allegations as “pure speculation, with no basis in fact.”
Additionally, Mesereau submitted files asking for that the criminal charges versus the star be tossed out as inadequate. The judge will select this demand when Masterson next appears in court on Oct. 19.
