I have to admit, I've never heard of a sentence like this before for even a brutal rape.

Actor Danny Masterson was sentenced on Thursday to 30 years to life in prison after he was convicted on two counts of rape earlier this year in a Los Angeles courtroom, according to Deputy D.A. Reinhold Mueller of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.​
Most murderers don't even get that level of sentence. I don't see any way on earth that sentence holds up on appeal.
It's interesting because one of the articles I read earlier had a quote of the judge admonishing him for lack of remorse. That may have been 'motivating' to the judge? 🤷‍♂️
Not sure.

I could see a 10 or 15 year sentence. After all, he settled with both of them in civil suits for 400,000 dollars each if memory serves.

The fact it was a female judge ignoring any and all mitigating factors doesn't help.
