Actor Danny Masterson appears in court to be arraigned on rape charges

That 70's Show star Danny Masterson has appeared in Los Angeles Supreme Court to be arraigned on rape charges. 

Masterson, a Scientologist, appeared in a blue suit and gray mask in the courtroom Friday where he stands accused of forcibly raping three women in separate incidents between 2001 and 2003. 

The 44-year-old was arrested back in mid-June has been free on $3.3 million bail since. Masterson could face up to 45 years to life in state prison if convicted as charged.

Also at the arraignment was outspoken Scientology critic Leah Remini, who previously called Masterson's arrest 'just the beginning' of the Church of Scientology's demise.

Remini is one of the most outspoken critics of Scientology after leaving the religion and exposing the inner workings with a reality television show Scientology and the Aftermath. 

It's unknown what Remini's part is in the case, but she is lending her support to accuser Chrissie Carnell Bixler, who previously dated Masterson. 

Remini is perhaps being brought in as a former Scientologist to speak on Masterson's character as a fellow Scientologist at the time of her affiliation with the church.

Masterson stands accused of raping a 23-year-old woman between January and December 2001, according to the complaint.

He is also accused of raping a 28-year-old woman in April 2003 and sometime between October and December of that year of raping a woman, 23, who officials say he had invited to his Hills home.  

Last year four women filed a lawsuit against Masterson in California claiming the actor drugged, raped and sexually assaulted them in the early 2000s.
