Ahead of former “That 70s Show” actor Danny Masterson’s sentencing for raping two women, letters of support emerged from former colleagues and family members. The actor, now sentenced to serve 30 years to life, was described by one victim as “pathetic, disturbed and completely violent”.
Mila Kunis, who shared the screen with Masterson in the iconic sitcom, painted a different picture, referring to him as a “role model” and an “outstanding older brother figure.” She singled out his influence in steering her away from drugs. Similarly, Ashton Kutcher, Kunis’ spouse, portrayed Masterson as a “dedicated and loyal” husband and father.
Kutcher wrote, “I recognize the seriousness of the charges against Danny. However, I ask that his character be considered during sentencing.” He emphasized his belief that Masterson is not a danger to society and pointed out the injustice of the actor’s daughter growing up without her father.
Kutcher also recalled an incident where Masterson defended an unknown girl against her abusive boyfriend. Meanwhile, Masterson’s wife, Bijou Phillips, emphasized his role as a “life-saving partner”, expressing her and their daughter’s grief at his absence, noting his daily calls from prison .
Masterson’s legal representation has confirmed his intention to appeal. If he is unsuccessful, he would only be on probation as an adult.
At trial, the victims testified that in 2003, Masterson provided them with drinks that caused dizziness and eventual unconsciousness, followed by the assault.
