Danny Masterson’s jury began after two jurors got Covid

By | November 30, 2022

The jury in Danny Masterson’s rape trial was told to start deliberations from scratch on Monday, after two members of the panel were excused for testing positive for Covid-19.

The judge informed Judge Charline Olmedo on November 18 that he could not rule on three counts of rape. This announcement came after nearly three days of discussion. Olmedo ordered jurors to return Monday and continue deliberations.

Two of the jurors informed the court on Sunday that they had tested positive for Covid-19 and were experiencing symptoms, Olmedo said in court Monday morning. She replaced those jurors with two replacements, and informed the new panel that they would have to begin their deliberations again “as if the previous deliberations had never taken place.”

The jury consisted of seven women and five men. Now there are six men and six women.

Masterson, 46, is a former “That ’70s Show” star and an active member of the Church of Scientology. All three victims were Scientologists when the attacks took place between 2001 and 2003. If you go to the police, you will be ostracized.

Masterson’s defense attorney, Philip Cohen, opposed the substitution of jurors. He also requested that the case be dismissed as he did on several other points.
