Convicted rapist Danny Masterson moved maximum security prison

"That '70s Show" actor Danny Masterson moved to maximum-security prison that once housed Charles Manson, after being convicted of rape.

Actor Danny Masterson, known for his role on "That '70s Show," has been transferred to a maximum-security prison in California that once housed notorious cult leader Charles Manson. Masterson, who was convicted of two rapes committed in 2003, was moved from North Kern State Prison to Corcoran State Prison in the state's Central San Joaquin Valley. Corcoran State Prison, founded in 1988, is known for holding some of America's most infamous criminals, including Manson and the assassin of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan. Masterson, 47, was initially held at the LA County Men's Central Jail but began his classification and reception process at Northern Kern State Prison on Dec. 31, 2023. The move to Corcoran State Prison came after a judge denied him bail, citing his lack of ties to the community. Masterson's estranged wife, Bijou Phillips, filed for divorce shortly after he was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison. The pair share a minor daughter, Fianna, and Masterson agreed to give Phillips full custody of the child following his sentencing. He will reportedly stay in Corcoran State Prison's Level IV housing, the most secure area of the facility, and will be eligible for parole in 20 years.
