A Los Angeles judge has declared a mistrial in the case of That ‘70s Show alum Danny Masterson, who was charged on three separate counts of rape, according to multiple reports. After the jury could not come to a conclusion on November 18, Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo told the deliberators to take a week-long break for Thanksgiving and come to a consensus. On Wednesday, November 30, the jury was still divided after seven voting attempts.
Calling the jurors “hopelessly deadlocked,” Judge Olmedo asked if there was anything the court could do to assist in an unanimous decision regarding Masterson, 46, and the charges he pleaded not guilty to.
The Los Angeles district attorney and Masterson’s defense team did not immediately respond to In Touch’s request for comment.
This is a developing story. More to come.
