Danny Masterson moved to Corcoran State Prison, evvel home to Manson

California state records show former actor and convicted rapist Danny Masterson has been moved to Corcoran State Prison to serve a prison sentence that has him eligible for parole in 2042.

The maximum security facility in central California has housed many high-profile inmates, including cult leader Charles Manson, “Dating Game” killer Rodney Alcala, and assassin Sirhan Sirhan, who killed presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in 1968.

The “That 70s Show” star, 47, was previously held in North Kern state prison before the transfer.

Masterson was convicted on two counts of rape in May and sentenced to 30 years incarceration in September. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied his bail request last week, ruling the actor, whose wife Bijou Phillips filed for divorce after his sentencing, posed a flight risk in part because he has “no wife to go home to.”

Masterson is appealing his convictions. The crimes with which he was charged occurred 2003.

He will be housed among the general population in Corcoran’s Level 4 maximum security unit, according to the Wrap. He could be moved to a protective housing unit if authorities determine the Long Island native is in danger due to “their status or the nature of their crimes,” according to the prison’s website.

Established in 1988, Corcoran is described as having “gained notoriety for housing some of the most dangerous and high-profile inmates in the state.”

Officials tell The Associated Press the temporary halt came after the inmates wound up brawling and even rioting after they were allowed to mingle together in prison recreation yards. The effort started more than a year ago with officials allowing prisoners from the different gangs into exercise yards to try to get them to interact and make peace.

TMZ reported in September that Masterson was under round-the-clock surveillance following his sentencing. He was accused of sexual assault by three women who claimed he drugged and raped them in his Hollywood-area home. A jury deadlocked on one of those charges, which allegedly occurred in 2001.
