Actor Danny Masterson has been transferred to what appears to be his long-term incarceration site: Corcoran State Prison in Central California, a maximum-security establishment that housed notorious figures like Charles Manson, as indicated by state records.
Last May, Masterson was convicted by a Los Angeles jury for the rape of two women during the 1990s. Following stints in an LA County detention center and subsequently the North Kern state prison intake facility, Masterson was recently relocated to Corcoran, positioned approximately midway between Bakersfield and Sacramento.
It is anticipated that the former “That ’70s Show” star will serve the majority of his 30-years-to-life sentence there. According to prison records, Masterson will become eligible for parole in 2042, at the age of 66.
At present, 47-year-old Masterson, who shares a daughter with Bijou Phillips, will reside in the prison’s Level 4 maximum security housing unit—the highest level of security offered. Notable individuals who were once incarcerated at Corcoran include Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Bobby Kennedy.
Established in 1988 and commonly referred to as Corcoran State Prison, the institution accommodates some of California’s most dangerous offenders and maintains a substantial population of Level 4 inmates—those necessitating the highest level of protection and supervision.
In the event that Masterson encounters challenges within the prison’s Level 4 general population, Corcoran offers a limited Protective Housing Unit for inmates at risk of harm.
This wing served as Manson’s residence from 1989 until his relocation to another facility almost a decade later following his involvement in drug trafficking.
