That '70s Show star Danny Masterson has been sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for raping two women in his Hollywood home two decades ago.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo handed down the sentence on Thursday local time, after hearing statements from both women about the trauma and the suffering caused by his actions in the decades since.
The 47-year-old actor, who has been in custody since May, sat in court wearing a suit and watched the women without visible reaction as they spoke.
"When you raped me, you stole from me," said one woman who Masterson was convicted of raping in 2003.
"That's what rape is, a theft of the spirit. You are pathetic, disturbed and completely violent. The world is better off with you in prison."
The other woman Masterson was found guilty of raping said he "has not shown an ounce of remorse for the pain he caused".
She told the judge, "I knew he belonged behind bars for the safety of all the women he came into contact with. I am so sorry, and I'm so upset. I wish I'd reported him sooner to the police."
After an initial jury failed to reach verdicts on three counts of rape in December and a mistrial was declared, prosecutors retried Masterson on all three counts earlier this year.
Following the second trial, a jury of seven women and five men found Masterson guilty of two counts after seven days of deliberations. Both attacks took place in Masterson's Hollywood-area home in 2003, when he was at the height of his fame on That '70s Show.
