'That 70s Show' actor Danny Masterson charged in 3 rapes

LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors say “That ’70s Show” actor Danny Masterson has been charged with the rapes of three women in the early 2000s.

The three counts of rape by force or fear announced Wednesday come after a three-year investigation of the 44-year-old Masterson. Masterson is charged with raping a 23-year-old woman in 2001, a 28-year-old woman in early 2003 and a 23-year-old woman in late 2003.

Jail records show he was arrested Wednesday morning and held on $3.3 million bail. He was released a few hours later after posting bond.

His attorney Tom Mesereau says Masterson is innocent and will be exonerated.
