Masterson, 47, was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison on Wednesday, September 6, following his retrial on sexual assault charges earlier this year. In May he was found guilty of two counts of rape. (He first stood trial in November 2022, which ended in a mistrial after the jury deadlocked on a unanimous decision.)

Masterson was arrested and charged with three counts of rape in 2020 after multiple women accused him of assault in the early 2000s. At the time, he vehemently denied the allegations.

“From day one, I have rejected the outrageous allegations against me. Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and found them to be without merit,” Masterson said Us weekly in a statement from December 2017. “I have never been charged with, let alone convicted of, a crime. In this country there is a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. However, in the current climate it seems as if you are found guilty the moment you are accused.”

Kutcher and the 40-year-old actress, who met on set That 70’s show, even wrote letters of support on behalf of Masterson before the sentencing.
