While early voting has started for district attorney in Los Angeles, we've learned that a seventh woman has formally spoken to the Los Angeles Police Department, alleging that she was sexually assaulted by Scientologist actor Danny Masterson. Still no word from DA Jackie Lacey.— Tony Ortega (@TonyOrtega94) February 26, 2020
A seventh woman has spoken to the Los Angeles Police Department about being sexually assaulted by That 70s Show actor Danny Masterson.
The District Attorney managers had signed off on charging Masterson under California’s “one-strike law," which would put him in jail for 15 years to life. However, District Attorney Jackie Lacey has yet to file charges. The first three victims came forward in 2017.
Sources say Lacey is dragging her feet because of the upcoming election, not wanting to fight with Scientology. Opponent George Gascón has said he will file charges against Masterson if elected.
