The Danny Masterson prosecution: Our reporting at the Underground Bunker

 
It was here at the Underground Bunker that we first broke the news in 2017 about Scientology celebrity Danny Masterson’s investigation by the LAPD on rape allegations by three women who were once Scientologist themselves.

Since then we’ve reported on every step of the story involving both the civil lawsuit against him and the criminal prosecution, which now has him facing trial and the potential for a 45 years to life prison sentence.

At this page, we’re collecting links to our coverage of this evolving story.
