The New York Daily News reports 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.
That’s where the former “That ’70s Show” star is expected to serve the bulk of his 30-years-to-life sentence according to the Wrap. Prison records show he will first be eligible for parole in 2042, when the 47-year-old Masterson, the father of a pre-teen girl with Bijou Phillips, is 66 years old. Phillips divorced him after his conviction.
The Wrap reports “Masterson’s latest move was first reported by blogger Jeffrey Augustine, who adds that Masterson will be housed in the prison’s Level 4 maximum security housing unit – the highest level of security available. Besides Manson, notable former inmates of the Corcoran prison include Bobby Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan.
Built in 1988, the facility houses some of the state’s most dangerous convicts and has a large population of Level 4 inmates – those requiring the highest degree of protection and/or supervision. Corcoran has a small wing called the Protective Housing Unit for inmates in danger of being harmed. That wing was where Manson was kept from 1989 until he was moved to another prison nearly a decade later after he was caught trafficking drugs.
