For some reason, I feel like Danny Masterson never believed he would actually be arrested and charged with rape. He has been, and he’s made good on his vow to fight the charges by pleading not guilty in court yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter details.

The actor is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman between January and December 2001; a 28-year-old woman in April 2003; and, sometime between October and December of 2003, according to authorities, the actor is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman whom he’d invited to his Hollywood Hills home, according to charges from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter after his June arrest, Masterson’s lawyer, Tom Mesereau, said his client was innocent. “We’re confident that he will be exonerated when all the evidence finally comes to light and witnesses have the opportunity to testify. Obviously, Mr. Masterson and his wife are in complete shock considering that these nearly 20-year-old allegations are suddenly resulting in charges being filed, but they and their family are comforted knowing that ultimately the truth will come out. The people who know Mr. Masterson know his character and know the allegations to be false.”

Now I don’t know if Masterson is guilty or not and that’s for a jury to decide. I do think he seems like kind of a dick, but that doesn’t make you a rapist. It just makes you a dick.
