Embattled actor Danny Masterson is moved from Manson’s maximum prison to a medium facility.

The actor served a 30-year prison sentence on rape charges after being convicted in a Los Angeles court last year. His estranged wife, Bijou PhillipsShe recently made a public appearance where she noted that she is “doing well” since divorcing Masterson.

Accordingly TMZ, Danny Masterson is moved from his “Manson” prison, where he was serving a 30-year sentence for rape, to a more humane facility.

Manson Prison, officially called Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran, is a maximum security prison known for housing some of the state’s most dangerous inmates. The prison got its nickname because it was once the residence of the infamous Charles Manson, who was serving a life sentence for the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders.

According to the news outlet, Masterson’s new prison is the California Men’s Colony in San Luis Obispo. This facility is characterized as a medium to minimum security prison and consists of two different housing facilities.

The “That ’70s Show” star is expected to have an easier time living in his new home as the facility will have fewer restrictions and rules. The facility also offers academic programs for inmates to acquire vocational and other skills, as well as notable self-help programs.

The actor was convicted of rape last year

Late last year, a Los Angeles court found Masterson guilty of two of the three rape charges he faced in 2020.

The comedy star was accused of having non-consensual sex with his victims between 2001 and 2003, at the height of his fame on the Fox network sitcom.

As part of the deposition, the woman in question said that Masterson drugged the drinks he gave them when they visited his Hollywood home. After taking the drinks, they became unstable or fainted before he violently carried out the act on them.

“When you raped me, you stole from me,” one of the victims said as she took the witness stand The guard. “This is rape, a theft of the mind. You are pathetic, disturbed and completely violent. The world is better off with you in prison.”

Another victim said Masterson “didn’t show an ounce of remorse for the pain he caused.” She added: “I knew he belonged behind bars for the safety of all the women he came into contact with. I’m so sorry and I’m so upset. I wish I had reported him to the police sooner.”

How the Church of Scientology allegedly prevented victims from coming forward

All of Masterson’s victims, including the actor himself, were members of the Church of Scientology. They claimed that when they reported the incidents to the church around the time they occurred, the church gaslighted them and swept them under the carpet.

Victims reportedly not only received warnings not to go to the police to report Masterson, a prominent member, but were also told that they had not been raped. They detailed that they were subject to ethics programs and shunned by community members, which prevented them from addressing the matter until decades later.

Following the court ruling, the church issued a statement denying the allegations. The statement claimed that the “statements and descriptions of Scientology’s beliefs” presented during the trial were viewed as “consistently false.”

The statement continued: “The Church has no policies prohibiting or discouraging members from reporting the criminal behavior of anyone – Scientologists or not – to law enforcement.”

After Masterson’s conviction, his wife, Bijou Philips, filed for divorce and left Scientology. She also began raising her daughter Fianna as a single mother when Masterson gave her sole custody.

She recently made a rare public appearance at a Janie’s Fund charity event, where she gave an update on her life since Masterson’s conviction E! News.

The 43-year-old actress noted, “I’m fine,” adding that she and her daughter Fianna are a “great little team.”

Throughout Masterson’s trial, Philips remained by his side and was emotionally broken when he was sentenced. In a later role, she also once claimed that Masterson remained a “miraculous father” while in prison.

“Danny is a great father,” she said. “Our daughter and I are heartbroken that he is not at home with us. Without him it was very difficult here. Even though he is now in prison, he calls her every day. He helps her with her homework every night.”
