Leah Remini Speaks Out In Support Of Victims Following Danny Masterson Sentencing: ‘I Am Relieved’

Leah Remini is speaking out following Danny Masterson’s sentencing for rape. On Thursday, the former “That ’70s Show” start was sentences to 30 years to life in prison after being convicted on two of three counts of rape in May, according to NBC News. As Access Hollywood previously reported, the jurors were deadlocked on a third count and spent seven days deliberating over two weeks. Now that Masterson has been sentenced, the 53-year-old actress is speaking out against the actor and the Church of Scientology on social media. “For over two decades, Danny Masterson avoided accountability for his crimes. While Danny was the only one sentenced, his conviction and sentence are indictments against Scientology, its operatives, and its criminal leader, David Miscavige,” she wrote in part on X, formerly known as Twitter. Remini is a former member of Scientology and has been a vocal critic since leaving the organization. “I am relieved that this dangerous rapist will be off the streets and unable to violently assault and rape women with the help of Scientology, a multi-billion-dollar criminal organization with tax-exempt status,” she added. Masterson has consistently denied the allegations against him since his 2020 arrest.
