Actor Danny Masterson, who starred in the popular sitcom That 70s Show, was arrested Wednesday and charged with the rapes of three women in the early 2000s, Los Angeles prosecutors said Wednesday. The 44-year-old Masterson, has posted bond and was released late Wednesday, and is scheduled to be arraigned on September 18. Prosecutors allege Masterson raped a woman in 2001, and two more in 2003. He's been married to actor Bijou Phillips since 2011. His attorney says, "Masterson and his wife are in complete shock, considering that these nearly 20-year-old allegations are suddenly resulting in charges being filed, but they and their family are comforted knowing that ultimately the truth will come out.” If convicted, Masterson could face up to 45 years in prison.
